The first room in our house that is officially unpacked is the master bedroom. It's funny how the exact same furniture can look so different in a new room. (It helps that the new room is about twice as big as the last one.)
High ceilings and bare walls.
It looks pretty bare right now, but I'm loving the minimalist aesthetic. It reminds me of modern Scandinavian decor -- with lots of straight lines, clear horizontal surfaces, and open space. We may eventually get around to hanging things on the walls, but for now this room is perfect.
The power of morning light.
One of my very favorite things about our room is the two gigantic windows that face northeast and southeast. We get bright light early in the morning and it has been a pleasure to wake up to sunlight peeping through the window shades.
The biggest challenge in this room has been the closets. But that's another post for another day. In the meantime, whenever the maelstrom of unpacking gets to be too much, I just come in and sit in this room for a few minutes. After a couple of deep breaths, I am recharged and ready to tackle another box.
