On the second-to-last stop on our house tour (just the laundry room left!) is our master bedroom. (Isn’t it funny that we call it the master bedroom? Always makes me think of Les Mis.)
The room is on the first floor, just around the corner from the stairs up to the girls’ rooms, which I am super excited about. I love that we have privacy away from the kids, but quick access in case they need us in the middle of the night.
The room is long and it’s definitely bigger than other bedrooms we’ve had over the years. (finally room for a king-sized mattress!) And I couldn’t be more excited about the extra space, but I’ll confess that our new closet is getting the side-eye from me.
I’ve been hoping for a really functional closet for me and Michael for a long time now and this one falls a bit short, but I think we can come up with some work-arounds.
As it is, it’s definitely long enough, but it’s a bit narrow with hangers coming at you from all sides. And while it’s nice to have all that high storage, what would I put up there and how would I get it easily on the regular? And most importantly: shoes. Where!?
So, since the bedroom is so long, we’re planning to add a bank of storage closets for shoes and accessories along this wall that is shared with the closet and is right by the bathroom. I’m hoping to come up with a really pretty design for these – maybe something mirrored?
And I’d love to put a pair of slipper chairs here in front of the fireplace. I should have snagged these now that I’m thinking about it! :/
