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 .
