Our Favorite Bedrooms & Bathrooms

This bedroom is the ideal place to hibernate during cold winters. Stone is an unusual choice for bedroom walls, but it adds a lot of rustic texture to the room and the color keeps it from being oppressive. Note the reclaimed wood beams and lintels over the windows and doors and other fine details.

The all-neutral color palette looks beautiful in a log home. The tile on the walk-in shower ties the golden brown color of the logs in with the natural stone floor. Extra storage is provided by the distressed dresser and a Victorian coatrack hanging on the wall. The open ceiling allows for ventilation.

The owners of this home must feel like they are in a very elegant tree house when they wake up or go to sleep in this one-of-a-kind bedroom. The bed is placed perfectly for a spectacular view of the lake below. The large windows are set into large character logs that can be seen on the exterior as well. The same effect is achieved with the stone column in the corner.

The incredibly lucky occupant of this bedroom has a panoramic view of the lake and a private balcony perfect for morning coffee or late-night stargazing. The wood wainscoting and bright red walls bring a touch of elegance to the room. The window seat with storage below is another great design element.

This master bath features a large steam shower with a barn-like overhang and a reclaimed wood wall treatment. These rustic elements offer a nice contrast to the room’s more modern tub surround
and vanity.

Sometimes simplicity is the key to creating a restful and inviting bedroom. The white walls set off the wood ceiling, window trim, and flooring and keep the room from being too dark. There is a great view to enjoy from the larger window.

The hammered copper tub shines among the various tones and textures of the wood in this master bath. The luxurious slate-clad shower literally has a window on the world. The double entry doors on the left with a transom window above are stand-out details.

This bedroom is a coccoon of warm, handcrafted logs; note the intricate logwork on the ceiling. The view of the beach is equally good from the bed or the desk. It would be difficult to resist spending a lot of time on the deck outside.

In spite of its rich brown wood walls, ceiling, and floor, this bedroom stays airy because of all the windows and doors and the beige wall on the left. The headboard fits perfectly between the two windows with room for ample storage on either side.

This master bath may have the best view in the house from two massive windows. The tile on the shower creates a perfect picture frame and adds some pattern to the natural slate floor and the wood vanity and trim.

This master bedroom epitomizes the wide open spaces of the Old West. a floor-to-ceiling fireplace is usually reserved for the great room but is used to dramatic effect here. We don’t know where the spiral staircase goes but would love to find out.

The purple walls were a bold but successful choice in this master bath. The elk painting adds to the ambience while the birch bark vanity and stone tub surround bring in elements of rusticity.
