Part 5: Creating the Cottage

The master bedroom!!

Your bedroom should always be your sanctuary! Since this is a weekend/ vacation home, I wanted the space to give me vacation vibes while also being a sanctuary. The walls are painted in SW Alabaster and the trim is SW Quench Blue. The space makes me feel like I am in a bedroom in the Caribbean somewhere! Plus, the bed looks out French doors directly to Core Sound.

I wasn't worried about getting a good night's sleep here but I still wanted to make it an oasis. Since we spend roughly 1/3 of our lives sleeping, and since the quality of that sleep can determine a lot about our waking hours, I am a firm believer in getting a high quality mattress and bedding. We chose a Tempurpedic mattress with the cooling top. We have the same one at home and it truly changed our lives.

The bedding is from Matouk and even my husband says that quality bedding creates a better night's sleep! I did white sheets and white coverlet and a neutral print duvet and shams. The beautiful artwork by Sue Scoggins is the perfect pop of color.

To round out the room, I chose a neutral Annie Selke rug that has the look of jute but is soft underfoot. The rattan headboard, shagreen nightstands, and shell lamps are from one of my favorite local stores, Beaufort Linen Company. I have rounded up a collection of similar looks HERE.

The paint scheme carries into the master bath. I chose classic and timeless Carrera marble for the floor and countertop. The vanity is from a local cabinet maker, also painted in SW Quench Blue. Chrome light fixtures, faucets, and hardware keep the classic feel. The Serena and Lily rattan mirrors keep the coastal vibe flowing! I can't forget my favorite plush towels in bright white! The space is crisp, clean, and happy. Plus, my husband finally got a waterfall shower head in the ceiling! He's in heaven!
