After spectacular kitchens and luxurious master bathrooms, the perfect master bedroom is often at the top of any home buyer’s wish list. The options are endless when you are designing a space that suits your style. You can go for a bold wall color that sets off wood accents or stay with soothing neutral and natural tones. The space can be elegant and refined or rustic and cozy. Being surrounded by things they love inspires some, while choosing minimal decorative items appeals to others. If your bedroom has a view to die for you’ll want to take advantage of that, perhaps even adding a private balcony or access to a deck or porch.
We hope the wide variety of master bedrooms shown here will inspire you to create your own oasis in your log & timber home.
