I walk past, the bed is rumpled.
A pile of laundry ( at least clean ) is sprawled on the “statement chair”.
In the corner a dust bunny lurks.
A 7th grade math text book sticks out from under the dresser.
This is not what I had in mind.
When we moved, I declared our new master bedroom would be a “sanctuary”.
Not the place where movies played on the tv and kids gathered.
Not the place where laundry got dumped after coming out of the dryer.
Not the place where bunnies & math books went to hide.
That was my bedroom in the last house – decidedly not a sanctuary.
Master Bedroom Inspiration
I need to break the cycle of bedroom abuse – how can we relax there when the laundry is waiting to be folded, bunnies to be caught & math books to be picked up?
All that has to go & be replaced with crisp sheets, plump pillows, fresh flowers, yummy smelling candles, grown up window treatments, art and good lighting.
My sanctuary doesn’t have to cost a bundle. There are great bedroom furniture discounts to be had and I can shop my house to style it.
It’s not spending lots of money that will make our bedroom the sanctuary. It is an attitude adjustment. If we treat it like a special room it will be a special room.
Is your master bedroom a laundry dumping zone, kid movie theater or an otherwise catch all place?
Do you want a sanctuary too?
You do…great! Let’s create the master bedroom we want together.
