Since I did a series on kids' bedrooms, I thought I would help all the adults out there achieve a beautiful retreat for themselves.

To get the bedroom you want, keep in mind that you will see this room everynight and everymorning - it should be something you love! Use colours that you love or find calming, and pay attention to every detail. A bedroom must do two things: release the stresses at the end of a day, and energize you in the morning. That is why for bedrooms I prefer colours that are bright and airy in the morning sun, and sultery when the sun goes down - a lot to ask from one paint colour!
I'm a firm believer that a master bedroom is a place to spend some extra coin - it is all about you, so make sure you love every item in it. Choose a timeless bedframe, as this is a good place to invest in a quality peice, but have fun with the bedding as it is easy to change. If you have room, purchase one or two occasional chairs for reading and reflecting - this will give the bedroom a very luxurious feel and will give you another place to lounge.
Choose colours and textures that you love, invest in quality peices, and enjoy the space that is all your own. And maybe let your spouse in once-in-a-while to.
