The Master Suite at Pennington House

One of the primary reasons that we chose this house was the Master Suite.  From the window of the bedroom and bathroom we could see Cheyenne Mountain and Pikes Peak.

The hubby was deployed one month after we moved in.  So while he was gone, I decided to get busy on turning this house into our home.

I tackled the master suite first.  I wanted him to have a retreat from the Army world and created a space that felt like a room in one of those spa vacation hotels. Well, that’s what it felt like to us.

The most difficult task in this room was finding a spot for the TV and stereo.  The TV was for my benefit while hubby was either deployed, working nights, or away for training.

I was happy that we had this empty corner because our dog, Liberty, loves to sleep in corners.

Though hubby hates excess pillows, he often laid down on this bed–just as it is in this picture–and fall asleep.  His intentions were to just rest for a moment, but he would inevitably end up taking an hour long nap.

I hung these drapes in order to create not only privacy, but also to add some drama to an otherwise boring open entry into the bathroom.

Speaking of the bathroom…I miss my huge tub!

That candle sconce in the upper left corner is mounted on the wall just above the bathtub.  I meant to install a dimmer switch eventually, but never got around to it because I enjoyed the candle light instead.

Of all the rooms at Pennington House, I miss the Master suite the most.  Perhaps someday, after the Army is done with us, we will return.

  1. Beautiful room! I definitely can relate. The apartment we are renting is furnished and SO TINY. I have to be very creative to make it feel like our (read: my) own. My husband lived here during the work week for over 2 years before I moved over and he didn’t change a thing. 😛

    1. We sold or donated most of our belongings before coming here because we knew that the space would be tight. Surprisingly it is much larger than we had anticipated! Men don’t like change. I am not sure what it is about them, but if you rearrange anything in the house they are lost. They are creatures of habit I suppose.
