What’s Your Style?

–Number 1–

People have a keen interest in the master bedroom of a home. It’s a place to get away, unwind, rest, heal, rejuvenate, and share special family time. Here then begins a series of photos of master bedrooms.

This bedroom is in an older home in the Lowry Hill area of Minneapolis. Note the various elements here: leaded French windows, four-poster bed, antique cane settee, oriental rug, soothing blue walls with white trim, antique light fixture, and scalloped-edged roman shades.

The former brewery is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
