A large master bedroom is certainly nothing to complain about, but it does present some decorating challenges. Namely: How do you fill all that space without creating visual clutter? The key is to create zones that feel discrete and yet tie together visually, says AD100 interior designer Suzanne Kasler, who has decorated dozens, if not hundreds, of expansive master bedrooms—including the one in her own Atlanta home. “I think a bedroom should be serene, above all,” she says. Here, Kasler explains how she created two elegant, airy, but still cozy spaces.

It’s common for master bedrooms to also include a sitting area. It doesn’t need to be big. A small table and a chair work just fine. This can serve as a quiet area where you can read, contemplate, write, etc. most often, it’s the corner of the room. You can be creative and decorate it any way you want, perhaps with a hanging chair or a tree bookshelf.

First things first. The bed is the main piece in the room so figuring out the best way to make it fit is important. Try as much as possible to place the headboard on the wall opposite to the bedroom’s entrance, even if that means it would be in front of a window. It’s more important to smartly assess the space than to be blinded by small inconveniences. Also, avoid a diagonal position as it takes up unnecessary room.

Since the bedroom is the place where you will be frequently looking at the ceiling, you might as well make it look interesting. You can opt for exposed beams for a more rustic or casual look, planks, an eye-catching trim or you can simply paint the ceiling an attractive color. In this case, the walls should remain neutral.

You won’t be spending much time in the bedroom during the day so artificial lighting takes priority in this room. Chandeliers are a nice option as they can add a glamorous look to the room but there are also plenty of other options such as sconces, table lamps, cove lighting and, of course, candles for a romantic touch. Pay special attention to task lighting and keep in mind that the light needs to be warm and subtle but not lacking.

This bedroom is all about the shimmer: Candice chooses fabrics that pick up light and shine. A custom headboard features chenille fabric with a metallic thread.
