This master bedroom was perfectly nice but understandably neglected, having been low on the family’s priority list for years. But it finally got its much-desired makeover, and the hotel-inspired results are totally worth the wait.

This is so dreamy and calm! I’ve never stayed at a Four Seasons hotel, but now I want to know if the rooms are anything like this. Stephanie of Olive and Tate is responsible for this excellent bedroom upgrade. All of the white is grounded by the lustrous woods, and the gray rug and pillows add a kind of foggy depth.

A word about white rooms: I know that many of you find white rooms to be cold, clinical, sterile, and perhaps even sort of hostile—and I believe that that’s how white rooms make you feel. But for some of us, white rooms are soothing, serene, calming, peaceful, and even cozy. They’ll never feel that way to you, but that’s okay—just know that they feel that way to us.

There was a bit of a delay on this room’s makeover, for a very relatable reason:

…I always set out to unpack and settle our master bedroom first so that Justin and I would have a “retreat” in our home. Well, two babies later and our bedroom is, without a doubt, the lowest priority space in our home. Nurseries, big boy rooms, playrooms, and bathrooms now all take precedent over our adult hideaway. But after our anniversary trip, I came home inspired to create a vibe in our bedroom that reminded me of our favorite hotel in the world—the Four Seasons Anguilla.

This alcove is an awesome feature; it turns the bedroom into a suite, which is so adult and hotel-like. The windows are especially nice to have.

Look how sophisticated the space looks now! That subtly shimmering sofa is perfect with the other gray accessories, and the cream carpet didn’t look too special in the shot before, but now it looks perfect! I love a good white, cream, gray palette; it almost always looks absolutely chic in a home. The new paint job is Ice Cubed Silver by Benjamin Moore on the walls and Dove White on the ceiling, trim, shutters, and doors. Shutters can occasionally look cheesy, but here they contribute to the overall resort-feel of the room. This is so well done, and I’m so happy for Stephanie and Justin!

Thank you, Stephanie of Olive and Tate!
