How To Create A Seating Area in The Master

I think every master bedroom should have a seating area of some kind.  Now it can be big and elaborate, or really small.  Most of us don't have the space to do big and elaborate.  If we're lucky, we have a small sliver of space and that's it.  

 This little nook of space in our master is only 4 ft. wide.  Big enough for a chair and table.

 A gold and silver metal garden stool found at Ross for $39 makes the perfect size table.  Big enough to hold a couple of decorative items and still big enough to place a drink on.

 The chair was my favorite goodwill find and only $15.  I love this chair.  It's very small in scale, so it fits perfectly in this small space.  I can change the back pillow to coordinate with the rest of my decor in the room.

 The painting and sconces I've had for years.  Perfect touches to finish off this space.  Now doesn't this look inviting.

 You don't need a big space to create a spot to sit, relax and have a little me time.  Think small and find a corner somewhere.  This could turn out to be your favorite spot in the house.

So did you carve out a spot in your master for a small seating area?

  1. Very sweet little spot you have created Marty. Love that chair.

  2. Marty, I love your design style. What a perfectly put together sitting area, the colors go so well together. Thanks for sharing, you've inspired me to think about creating a sitting area in our master bedroom.


  3. The idea is going in my idea book. The real name of the book will be "copy this" lol. Not even a tiny sliver of space but hope our next house has more room.

  4. What a perfect little nook! I love the chair with the fun graphic pillow - so pretty!

  5. Such a lovely seating area! I can't believe you found that beautiful chair for only $15! Wow!

  6. I wish my bedroom was big enough for a seating area, Id love a feature chair like this to sit and read a book. Although in reality it would probably be the place I throw my clothes on!

  7. Love that chair Marty! Such a cozy and lovely spot! Beautiful!
    Have a lovely day!

  8. I agree with you, it's so nice to have a little seating area in the bedroom! This looks great!

  9. That's a wonderful spot, Marty. I'm so jealous of that pretty chair.

  10. I love your little seating area, Marty! That chair is gorgeous, but my favorite is the garden stool as your side table! LOVE!!!

  11. That looks so comfy! Love that painting. Well you know I have the chaise in our bedroom and boy, do we use it there!

  12. Marty, your chair is lovely! I agree, every bedroom needs a chair! I also like a bench at the end of the bed if there is room. Thanks for sharing your pretty sitting area in your master.

  13. What a wonderful find that chair was, Marty. I have a chair in my bedroom that I sit in to blog and read. I love it. xo Laura

  14. Dear Marty...that little chair is adorable. I have no sitting area in our little bedroom. so I sit on my little trunk at the foot of our bed when I need to sit. But our little living room is just around the corner with lots of cozy places to sit. Yep..the old trunk has to do. It might be nice to have a cozy reading spot but I read in bed...only sit to put on shoes or nylons. Stilll...a tiny soft, cute chair would be lovely. AND such a pretty stand next to it. Lovely finds, both!

  15. I also found the perfect chair for for my master bedroom's little seating area at Goodwill for $12.95! I do need to recover it. In search of the perfect material, at the perfect price of course. haha! Love your little area! It's a small room within a room. Looks so cozy!

  16. What a comfy spot Marty!!! Love your $15 chair and the pretty sconces flanking your beautiful painting.
    XO Barbara

  17. Lovely! The blue fabric of the chair cushion perfectly coordinates with the sky blue in the painting. Just beautiful!

  18. It is just the little chair too!

  19. I just love your bedroom. It is so elegant. This little spot is just perfect!

  20. Oh, I love that chair. Yes, I have a seating area, but I am going to change out the chair for a smaller one. I love how you have yours. Thanks Marty, for all your great inspiration. Hugs, Karie

  21. We are fortunate to have a sitting area in our master. However it is NOT exactly what I like, there is a big, honking TV on a swivel thing on the wall so we can see it from the bed or the little loveseat and then there is my make up table so I never show that side of the room:) Yours is LOVELY. I love the chair and the table!!! You find the BEST BARGAINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. It is a beautiful chair and I love that barrel table! All I need is a good book and a cup of tea and I could settle right in. Thank you for sharing at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great week!


  23. What a pretty corner, Marty! The chair is simply beautiful, what a lovely bargain! And the silver garden stool goes with it is so prettily. Love your beautiful reading corner~hugs, Poppy

  24. Brilliant, Marty! I love the way you've created this from a very small space--and without spending a fortune, either! Thanks for the tips. I'm pinning this!

    And thanks so much for joining Grace at Home! :)

  25. Love the chair, and love your idea for changing up the pillow! Great job! Visiting from Considering Grace through Imparting Grace! Blessings.

  26. Love the garden stool! Makes a rather elegant table. A very pretty chair too...$15! Wow.
    I do have a sitting area in my master. I'm wanting different chairs though...something more comfy. It's big enough got two chairs and a small table.

  27. Marty,
    Adorably chic chair in your Master Bedroom seating area, dear friend!!!
    The soft aqua hue is tranquil and serene.
    Love the Ross table beside the chair.
    Thank you for sharing another area of your gorgeously decorated home.

  28. Perfect! Eventually I'd like to carve out a small sitting area in my bedroom but first I need to find a new home for at least one piece of furniture. Here's to more downsizing!

  29. What a perfect space you have carved out. You always have the best ideas. I will be featuring this tonight at my Sizzle into Summer party that opens at 8pm EST. Please stop by and pick up an I've Been Featured button. Thanks.

  30. I love creating sitting areas - love your chair - it looks gorgeous! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
