Good morning friends! Thank you so, so much for the love on our updated master bedroom yesterday! I’m absolutely crazy for how it turned out and so happy to finally invite you in. Today, we’re continuing the bedroom tour with updates we made to our master bedroom sitting area.
OUR MASTER BEDROOM SITTING AREA UPDATE
Before we built our home 9 years ago, we toured several model homes to get ideas for the floor plan in our house. One feature that stood out to me was the ‘sitting area’ – a little nook off the master bedroom for just lounging or watching tv in a cozy space.
I’ve never been a fan of tv in the bedroom, but this provides a nice compromise. I’ll often come up here on a Sunday evening if my husband is watching football and I want to relax with the Housewives. Or if I’m folding laundry on the bed, I can have the tv on at the same time.
When our kids were babies, they often played here while I got ready in the adjoining bathroom. Jordan still likes to come and ‘read’ or just snuggle in the chairs with her Lovie. And the sitting area looks especially pretty when it’s all decorated for Christmas! 😉
We brought in the same braided rug as under the bed to make the adjoining spaces more cohesive. The rug is very soft underfoot and has held up well. We kept the wing chairs, ottoman, side table and lamp the same, and borrowed two pillows from Jordan’s room. 😉
This giant basket is typically where I put my ‘mushy’ pillow that I sleep with, but doesn’t go on the made bed. 😉
You gotta have a cozy throw blanket in your sitting room for extra snuggly softness. This one is our family favorite, and up until recently, we all fought over it. Now that they went on sale, I got two more so that everyone can have their own. Jordan still prefers her ‘wubby’. These are the blankets you find in spas and all the celebs carry on airplanes!
You might remember that I had the bookshelves backed with fabric previously. I removed that fabric, painted them SherwinWilliams Divine White and then brought in hardcover books mostly from Amazon and Half-Priced books, and a few photos and accessories.
Styling bookshelves is always a work in progress, so I’m sure I will continue to tweak them.
