Does it just seem like your life has become a little too-organized? What happens when the bedroom becomes just as sterile as the rest of your life and is no longer a retreat from the world and a place to just relax? Who says we can't go a little crazy in our master bedroom and really deck it out the way we want and indulge ourselves? Hey, we work hard so there is no reason why we shouldn't be able to play hard-in our own homes!

Transforming the master bedroom into your own private retreat is not nearly as hard or complicated as you might think. Sometimes, the subtle changes can have the most profound effects which is why you want to start with the light fixtures. Simply indulging your fantasies and choosing elaborate and intricate Tiffany lamps and matching ceiling pendants can completely revolutionize a space. The softly diffused light coming through a Tiffany lampshade will help set a relaxing tone in the space and make every minute in the room a treasured moment.

Where feasible, a fireplace is another great addition in the bedroom. While you may not be able to install a chimney and a genuine wood-burning hearth, you can buy a fireplace powered by natural gas. Easier to install and maintain, a gas fireplace in the bedroom will still generate a romantic atmosphere and is sure to become the only place you want to be on those long, cold winter nights! Be sure to buy a beautiful fireplace screen (a stained glass screen is the best!) or perhaps a stunning candelabra to really help set the space off and generate the right atmosphere.

Finally, the linens are something that can really define the bed and we tend to be quite conservative when buying. Sometimes, you may just want to throw on a set of "naughty" bed linens for special occasions (like when the kids are away at "band camp"!). Or, maybe there is just some special afghan that may be uglier than homemade sin but is the most comfortable thing you have ever known. The point is that the master bedroom should be your retreat and a relaxing place to come home to-this is the one room where the imagination should be allowed the most freedom so don't be afraid to indulge your fantasies!
