We love that our bedroom is OUR bedroom. It's a space that we have created together. Spacious with two windows providing great views of our neighborhood, the river, and downtown Manhattan. It's simple and clean and everything has it's place.
So much! It's huge, so it feels like a big airy space where you can breathe. There is tons of wall space, as well, so I have lots of flexibility on how to design and decorate... similarly, the size of the room allows for a *huge* 17-foot long closet where I can organize all of my things. The thing I like MOST, however, are the original architectural details of my room, some of which are over 100 years old... from original doorknob on my door to the stained-glass window of a chickadee that sings over my doorway onto a small breakfast balcony... I mean, could you ask for anything more?
We all deserve to have our dream bedroom at least once in our life, don't you think? A time when we can decorate our most intimate sanctuary exactly as we'd like, without regard to others. And this? This is Maggie Mason's (aka Mighty Girl's) time...
I love the airy feel of it. It is overall white but I have left a piece of the original concrete wall in sight. This gives the room a soft industrial touch that I truly love. I have a locker to store jeans and t shirts and some other things I do not wear very often. On the inside of the doors I added fashion images for inspiration. I love them so much that I often keep one door half open. The colors in my bedroom are mostly black and white with a gray floor ... I add color with different bedspreads and cushions.
I love the high ceiling and stature of our bedroom. I also love the original woodwork and period details in the crown moldings, ceiling medallion, fireplace, pocket doors with etched glass, parlor mirror and window shutters.
