Master Suite Sources

Master Bedroom


Our master bedroom makeover was part of a total transformation when we turned two bedrooms into a master suite with a walk-in closet and 3/4 bathroom. By knocking out the closets between the bedrooms, we added on about 3 feet to the bedroom. We skimcoated and painted the entire room, refinished the wood floor, added a shiplap wall, and installed a pocket door leading into the closet/bathroom. 


The knotty alder shiplap feature wall is definitely the standout in this room and helps to bring warmth into this space. The blue paint also brings a calm feeling into this room and when combined with cozy bedding and dark winter mornings, makes it hard to get out of bed! In Spring 2019 I did a mini-makeover of this space (“after” as seen below) and love it even more.

Master Closet


As seen above in our master bedroom, we created a master suite by knocking down the walls and closets between two bedrooms. In order to create our dream walk-through closet, we had to remove an exterior window and close in the second bedroom’s door. In the before photo below, you see the former door to the bedroom which is now covered by Josh’s closet, the door to the old closet that was knocked out, and the door to our master bedroom.


I designed the closets at IKEA and we built the wall between the closet and bathroom based on the size of the closet systems. We now have room to store almost all of our clothes, year-round, and we absolutely love the “his and hers” sides.

It’s crazy to think that this used to be a bedroom. When you think of it that way, this might be our biggest transformation yet in this home. We added plumbing and electrical to turn this room into a 3/4 bathroom with a double vanity and we absolutely love it.


My goal in this design was modern yet timeless. The marble wall tile gives this space a classic feel, while the floating vanity and black hexagon tile keep it modern. Due to the size of the space, storage was also a priority and the built-in linen closet was the perfect solution. We’ve never had an en-suite bathroom before and this one is a dream for us!
