Interior designer Nate Berkus turns a husband's purple
nightmare into a "suite" master
Give Your Master Bedroom a Makeover
Personalize the space to reflect what matters to you. Include family photos, old furniture and books.
Choose colors that are warm and soothing.
If you have a fireplace, it should be the feature of the room. Hang kids' paintings as precious pieces of artwork over your mantel.
Don't settle for generic countertops in the master bath. Use the sink and cabinets to continue the style of your bedroom.
If you have a walk-in closet, think of it as a dressing room rather than a storage rack. Include a dresser or bench, but keep it simple and organized.
