Bedroom Seating

by Shelly

When we moved into our current home we were amazed at how freaking HUGE the master bedroom was.  Coming from a small, cottage size house of 1100 sq. ft. to more that 3300 in our new home was quite a shock.  We just weren’t use to that kind of space!  Our master bedroom, by far, has to hold the bulk of that square footage.  We lovingly refer to the room as “Vegas”.  After all, there really WAS a weird platform set up in the corner of the room when we moved in.  I guess the previous owners used it to raise up their tv.  I don’t know…looked like a stage to us.

In any case, we purchased a new bedroom set shortly before we moved in.  However, the room is still lacking some finishing touches that I think will really make it feel pulled together.  Here are some inspiration photos of bedroom with seating areas that are similar to what I am working with.

So I’m thinking of a few combos for the room…. bench at the end of the bed with a comfy chair and ottoman in a corner,  small settee at the end of the bed with maybe a small ottoman in front of it, or two chairs and a small table or ottoman between them.  I could go so many ways!  But really the basic thing we need is just somewhere to sit and put on our shoes!  Right now the bed is too high to be able to do that comfortably.  Here is a fairly recent shot of our room as it is now.

And here are some looks that I am considering for the room…..

Which look would YOU do?

I pick number one fosho, but combo #3 is a close second… I haven’t seen that look before. And your bedroom is lovely, my boyfriend would trade a week of Fantasy Football for our bedroom to be painted that shade of green- his favorite! Can’t wait to see which direction you go in!

Hey Shelly! Love the green! If you remove your back pillows or duvet prior to sleeping – a bench or sofa is nice and neater. Though I love the curved lines of the two chairs and ottoman which breaks up all the other horizontal lines. Support for either direction!

Beds are too high for a reason, I learned… we aren’t supposed to sit on the edge of them it breaks the edge of the mattress over time.

Number 3 looks like you to me. And gives you options in case you want o move them around.

Love look number 2! Elegant but cosy too.

I’m all about tufting right now so I’m lovin’ that loveseat or those fab chairs. Although that bench is sweet looking too. You have good taste so any of them would look great! Good luck making up your mind:)

I like look #3. Or the tufted settee from #2 and the bench from #1…just to make it more complicated ;)
