Create a retreat just like you would an interior room by starting with furnishings. Consider your style and budget, along with how you’ll likely use the space. If your retreat is a cherished space for reading and hanging out with family, include plenty of seating options. For a retreat that provides an escape for morning coffee, you might just need one seat and a spot to park your favorite mug. Include container gardens to give the space a touch of greenery and nature that will minister to you, body and soul. These pots sport a mix of annuals: dwarf purple fountain grass with ‘Sweet Caroline Light Green’ sweet potato vine and Intensia blueberry phlox, dark Vertigo purple fountain grass, and Blushing Princess sweet alyssum solo and with Supertunias Royal Velvet and Trailing Silver. A pot of Diamond Frost euphorbia adds a just-right blooming accent to the coffee table.
Dark wood furniture, including an upholstered headboard, contrasts with the soft beige color palette in this traditional bedroom. Antique wall art adds charm to the space while striped and floral accent pillows bring a pop of color to the room.
Although this master bedroom boasts traditional architecture and classic pieces, clean, simple lines update the design for a transitional look. Dark furniture and rich wood floors provide pleasing contrast against the room's light walls.
A wood bench at the foot of the bed complements the upholstered headboard and small nightstands in this white bedroom. The room's transitional style is dressed up with a minimal use of color, including the blue wall hanging and the pillows on the bench.
