I am so excited to share more of Melinda from Hawkes Landing home today. Melinda is going to be a monthly contributor to my blog- we are in for a treat! She will share more of her gorgeous home with us. If you remember I shared her home tour HERE. Today she is sharing her Master Bedroom and Master Bathroom. I love how Melinda mixes old vintage pieces with new modern pieces. Melinda said that she is not sure how she would describe the style, but she lean’s toward traditional and also likes clean contemporary lines. See what she has to say about the rest of her bedroom and bathroom and how she mixes it all so well.
I love contrast, so you’ll find a lot of black and white throughout my home, and every room in my home has white walls except for one- the master bedroom. I wanted to change things up a little from the rest of the house, and I was hoping to achieve a calm and peaceful feel in the Master bedroom. The paint color I ended up choosing is Benjamin Moore-Coventry Grey. It is a grey that looks a little bluish or even green depending on the light. (Brooke painted her kitchen door in Coventry Gray too, see it HERE).
Master Bedroom Walls- Benjamin Moore Coventry Gray
Design Tip- White bedding is timeless and can brighten up darker painted walls
The bedroom also has a small sitting area where I can be found multiple times throughout the day relaxing with a good book.
My favorite part of the master bathroom is the large claw foot tub. After a busy day, I am known to fill the tub with hot water, add a little bath salt, light a candle, and hide out from the rest of the family for a while. Behind the claw foot tub the entire wall has been tiled with subway tile. The subway tile continues into the shower and along the adjacent wall of the shower. The master bathroom also has a vanity with marble counter tops and his and her sinks.

The master closet can be accessed through a sliding barn door in the bedroom or through the master bathroom. Inside the closet there are windows that let in a lot of natural light. There is also a bench that my husband and son made from some reclaimed wood and hairpin legs ordered from Amazon. I think every closet should have a place for sitting.
Design Tip- No matter the size of closet create a little spot to sit.
I also wanted a place where I could sit and apply my makeup and do my hair. We found this sweet vintage desk that fits perfectly in the space, and while it isn’t perfect, we decided to leave it in its original condition. The natural wood really warms up the space that is otherwise shades of grey.
Design Tip- Mix vintage pieces with contemporary for a modern look.
