Good morning! I realize it may not actually be morning as you read this, but you’re about to enter a daydream, so just go with it. Speaking of dreams,  there’s a contest to win a gift card for $250 to Joss & Main at the bottom of the post, so don’t miss it!

Breakfast in Bed

In the interest of full disclosure and honesty, I’ve never actually eaten breakfast in bed. My kids are still a bit young for the (terrifying) concept of making breakfast on their own. I distinctly remember my brother and I making my Mom pancakes and substituting a few ingredients we couldn’t find readily. She reflected much later that they were completely inedible. Hahaha! Something to look forward to for sure.

Hey, this is a daydream, after all). Master Bedroom Retreat & Breakfast in Bed | Gather Mother's Day inspiration from this master bedroom retreat makeover, fresh spring flowers, and a decadent breakfast in bed.I love my children, of course, but sleep and peaceful mornings have become a scarce commodity in our household for the last decade.

Somehow my to do list would be magically blank, rather than blinking in my mind like the Vegas sign. Doesn’t that sound perfect?Master Bedroom Retreat & Breakfast in Bed | Gather Mother's Day inspiration from this master bedroom retreat makeover, fresh spring flowers, and a decadent breakfast in bed.The truth is that in the past I rarely spent time in this room, except to literally sleep- and I don’t even sleep anywhere as much as I should. I’ve been burning the candle at both ends, in spite of my best intentions.

It lacked a feeling of cohesion, partially because of the 10% of finish work left to do, but also because the furniture was very bare bones. It discouraged me to be in the room because I felt like the unfinished projects were staring me in the face and I should be working on them instead of relaxing.

I wanted to say a big thank you to Joss & Main for providing the beautiful Haverford/Watson bed in Oak for this post. This post also contains affiliate links. All opinions are my own, you can see my disclosures here.

I’m happy to say that we’ve made huge strides. I have had my eye on the gorgeous Haverford/Watson bed in Oak for a long time, and it was gratifying to see how much it truly pulled the room together. (If you are searching for it, it’s alternately known as the Haverford or Watson bed at Joss & Main & Wayfair. It sells out quick, so I will try to update the links every so often. This is the “oak” finish.)

The artwork above the bed was also a quick project. The botanical prints were from The Magnolia Journal. I just put them in some inexpensive frames from the discount store. I’ve had the frames for years, and when I was brainstorming artwork I realized that they coordinated perfectly with the other finishes in the room. Master Bedroom Retreat & Breakfast in Bed | Gather Mother's Day inspiration from this master bedroom retreat makeover, fresh spring flowers, and a decadent breakfast in bed.Master Bedroom Retreat & Breakfast in Bed | Gather Mother's Day inspiration from this master bedroom retreat makeover, fresh spring flowers, and a decadent breakfast in bed.I also always love to have fresh flowers in my room whenever I can!

While the room still isn’t done, it is coming along! We mostly need some more “grown up” furniture to replace our old fiberboard dressers. You can see the inspiration board here to see where we are headed with this room!

  1. Nina,
    I know about that “blinking Vegas sign” in your head! I have one all the time, not just in the morning. Wish I could turn it off – it’s guilt-producing and annoying!
    Can you source your lovely mug for us?
    And also, what would you call the finish on your new bed? I’d like to try and reproduce that if possible.

  2. Oh Nina… this so elegant and beautiful. Such a wonderful retreat!!!
    And your daydream of breakfast in bed and reading until you are ready to be done sounds magnificent. :)

  3. Nina, what a gorgeous retreat! Love your writing style too, made me laugh and I can totally relate as a mom of 3 boys. Beautiful photography in every photo. So fun getting to know your blog through this tour together! Happy Mother’s day! May your kids let you sleep in and your breakfast in bed be scrumptious and “calorie free” ;)
    xo

  4. Love the white washed bed! I’m not able to find it on the Joss and Main website, could you post the link? I could only find the Oak finish and solid white. Thanks! Such a beautiful room!

  5. Hi! Your room is lovely! I love your bed! I tried using the link you posted in your comments and can’t seem to find it. Any thoughts?

  6. Love all that you do. I’m amazed at how clean, bright and inviting you make everything look and I know its anything but simple! Love the basket at the foot of your bed.

  7. beautiful room! My bed is almost identical one, the Alessandra bed from Ethan Allen, and I did a similar wood finish and a pearl leather (I overpaid though!) Can you tell me where the window shades are from ? I need for my new master bathroom. Thank you.
