Swedish Country-Inspired Master Bedroom

My clients, a young couple who had recently purchased their first house, wanted to create a master bedroom retreat that was calm, elegant, and "finished." They were tired of sleeping in a room filled with odds and ends, as well as a huge exercise machine.  The hitch was that the room had to be created on a modest budget.

Keying in on the colour palette of taupe and soft violet,  I replaced the old striped wallpaper with a modern damask on the headboard wall, painted the other walls taupe-gray, and coated  the wall of dark wood cabinets facing the bed in a soft white; the room was instantly brightened.

I added simple cottage-style furnishings in painted white wood, a new linen headboard, and a comfortable chair for reading.  Additional details such as the vintage mirror, country-style bookcase,  artwork collected by the couple on their travels, and a large crystal chandelier add personality and complete the comfortable and gracious space.
