The bedroom continues the home’s minimalist, earthy aesthetic, which Amy calls, “Spa Retreat.” The emphasis in this room is on linens and sheets that add a bit of blue to the sea of neutrals that define the home. The addition of shades of blue creates a more beach-centered look in the bedroom.
This master bedroom exemplifies the power of white. It feels open and airy yet restful at the same time — few other colors can pull this off with such finesse. Painting your room white will make an otherwise simple space feel modern and exciting. You can also soften and cozy up a bright white space by layering in accessories with yellow undertones, such as cream and ivory.
There’s something very serene about an uncluttered bedroom. The Nordic design ethos puts a lot of significance on the beauty of an un-fussy space. This quaint bedroom with twin beds is a perfect example with its thick, inviting blankets and accessories you can count on one hand. It’s just enough to feel “lived in” but spare enough to keep your mind quiet and primed for a great night’s sleep.
Decorative pillows may not be essential but they go a long way to achieving the atmosphere you desire in your bedroom. Flanigan says, "Decorative pillows tells people a lot about you and how formal you want your 'rest nest' to feel. Start with larger Euro shams in a neutral hue that serve as a backdrop for the smaller lumbar and boudoir pillows. Enjoy changing your smaller pillows on a seasonal basis for a quick and budget-friendly transformation that will adorn your bed with a fresh dose of color and texture."

The master bedroom is a showplace for custom furnishings. From the built-in banquette to the bedding, all the furniture and upholstery is custom designed for this room.
