Our Master Bedroom Sitting Room

The other day, while my regular desk top was updating itself, I borrowed my son’s laptop which used to be mine. 

That’s how I came to find these photos of our master bedroom sitting room from a few years ago. I’m not sure if I ever posted them here.

I only wish I had thought to take “before” photos of this space.

The lack of windows in this spot really bothered me when we first came to look at this house a few years ago. It’s probably why I didn’t bother to photograph a dark and empty area.

Fast forward to today and it’s now one of my favorite spaces in the house.

This formerly awkward area is now a cozy little nook. It’s so nice to read or relax in here.

As for the lack of natural light, we added a large mirror on the far wall. This allowed us to to capture some light from the other room – which is our actual bedroom.

With the help of Muse Interiors, our interior designers on this project, we installed a pretty and practical built-in console in the small recess of the larger wall.

Then we opted for a light blue paint color for the ceiling to add a little more levity to this space.

UPDATE: The ceiling color here is Benjamin Moore Morning Sky Blue .

We used some of our previous home’s living room furniture (like our coffee table) along with a few new pieces ( this table and these throw pillows) to help warm the space up.

Our Master Bedroom Sitting Room
We wanted a modern master bedroom with a lot of traditional design elements.
It was important that our sitting area features complimented the overall look of our master suite bedroom design and bedroom furniture.

We incorporated all of our old furniture from different rooms in our previous home into this bedroom suite.
The accent table in the far corner is almost an antique by now…we’ve had it for so long.
You can see more of our beautiful master bedroom here.

Our pretty marble and brass side table is from West Elm.
The only thing missing at this point are a couple of floor lamps, as it’s pretty dark in this space.
I just haven’t found the right ones yet.

UPDATE! After receiving so many question about the paint color we used in this space, I did a whole blog post all about it.
You can read all about it here – it’s Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray.

    This is a beautiful space! If you get the tv and want to let go of the blue art, let me know and I'll zip to NC and pick it up from you. Also that chandelier from Neiman Marcus – what an amazing price!! 🙂
