The Blehm's master bedroom strikes the perfect balance of masculine and feminine energies. The palette compliments the rest of the house but is decidedly more subtle and conducive to rest.

Inside, Heather Garrett Interior Design and the Houghtons determined that a fitness room took priority over a vacuous master bedroom suite, so Heather designated that area on plan to house a gym with a climbing wall.

Before the renovation, this loft was cluttered with a limiting layout and the homeowner's business papers scattered around the space. Now, the layout of the room is much more functional.

To help connect the living space with the adjoining master suite, an industrial pendant light and airy curtain give these loft spaces seamless cohesion.

On the other side of the room, a desk rests between two large windows, keeping the desk well lit and providing beautiful views that make the position of this piece a perfect space for writing.
This turn-of-the-century home is full of vintage charms, but the layout of the master bedroom was incredibly limiting. French doors used to be in the center of the entrance wall, which jammed up the room, causing all who entered to run straight into the bed.

A balcony was added to connect to a newly renovated private sitting room for the couple. A new navy, upholstered king sized bed was added to give the space a luxurious feel, as well as a luxurious area rug and bench at the foot of the bed.
