Your master suite should be your sanctuary, oasis, sacred space – that one place you go to escape from the busyness of the world. There are a variety of ways to achieve this other worldly ambience:
wall color/wall paper
and… furniture. Specifically, the bed frame.
The bed frame is the equivalent of the main dish in your multi course meal. With out it, you’ll be left with a pretty empty space, or continuing on with the metaphor in the previous sentence, hungry. Neither of which signify oasis, sanctuary, sacred space… So, that’s why I’ve compiled a list of 5 bed frames, tailored to 5 very different design styles to help you get started.
For the Mid Century Modern Lover:

Are you a traditionalist who wants to branch out? A book lover who spends every evening with your nose between pages? This bed frame is beckoning you. It’s soft and comfortable. While it’s shape is fairly traditional, the fabric and color make it feel contemporary. This inlet bed reminds me of a Diane Keaton movie with a perfectly decorated interior set design.
For the Contemporary Style Lover:

Are you a lover of luxury? Contemporary styles and shapes? If yes, then this bed frame has your name all over it. It will elevate any master suite to a 5-star-hotel-penthouse-level. It’s that good! Its simple, yet interesting. To me, the epitome of great style.
