Someday, if/when we are lucky enough to work with an interior designer on our entire home, I’m definitely going to pull these photos of Justin Hemmes’ master bedroom suite out for reference and inspiration. I came across this tour on Vogue Living the other day (I follow them on Facebook for a welcome, constant reminder to browse interiors eye candy!) and fell in love. To me, this space is such a wonderful blend of old and new, modern and traditional, clean/simplified but not too sparse, and most importantly, completely livable. You know how when you watch HGTV and the hosts are always saying that the master bedroom should be a sanctuary? Well, it’s true, and this suite fits the bill completely. Besides the gorgeous four-poster bed, the space includes a large sitting area, gigantic bathroom with separate soaking tub and shower (and beautiful arched pocket doors to separate everything from the bedroom), and one of the brightest, would-make-her-and-him-happy walk-in closets I’ve ever seen.
I’ve told Joe that casement windows and doors are a must have in our future forever home. I’d never seen arched versions like the ones above — aren’t they cool? It’s all perfect. You can see the full bedroom suite tour here, as well as the full home tour here. Justin began renovating the home — one he had lived in before with his family, who own a large hospitality group in Australia — back in 2011, and the results are stunning. I would love to make the trek from this master bedroom down into that kitchen every morning!
What say you? Could you escape to this suite for the weekend and only emerge to get snacks from downstairs? Count me in.
