Raise your hand if you like simple, clean and bright! I see you…thanks for agreeing. 🙂

Mark and I definitely lean toward the minimalistic sense of design. We like clean lines and favor simple accents over lots of stuff and overly fussy design.
The master bedroom in our first renovation is the perfect example of simple, clean and bright.

Our exposed brick fireplace is a central feature of the bedroom. Mark used extra bricks from downstairs to make a cool hearth that’s a bump out on the floor in front of the fireplace.

We chose a light pine floor and sanded it just a little before putting a clear protectant on it. The protectant let the natural color come through without too much shine.

A sleek ceiling fan, dark chocolate wood blinds and just a few accessories finish off the space! I love this bedroom…the only thing it needs is a bigger closet!
