Stylishly Serene: Dream Bedrooms


A sanctuary is a place where someone feels safe and serene. Within our homes, the primary bedroom serves as a sanctuary within a sanctuary. It's the intimate space where we begin and end our days, and seek refuge from the outside world.

The concept of sanctuary is as personal as a fingerprint, so even the dreamiest of primary bedrooms today can look and feel very different. Some bedroom retreats may take design cues from the hotel world, incorporating an adjoining sitting room for unwinding at the end of the day or a dedicated cappuccino bar to start the day. Reading nooks or meditation rooms are also increasingly popular additions. Many, though not all, will be oriented towards a view – whether it be water, mountain, or city. And if a primary bedroom has a private balcony? Perfection. Calming color palettes and warm, layered lighting are common, and can immediately set the tone that this is a space for relaxation and retreat. Natural elements like wood, stone, plants and fireplaces are favorites, as they promote a sense of well-being. High-quality luxury bedding and textiles ensure a restful night's sleep. Blackout shades, aromatherapy, or soothing sounds also go a long way in creating "ambiance." Adding personal touches – like artwork, photographs and decorative pieces from a homeowner's travels – can also go a long way in transforming a primary bedroom space from a mere sleep zone to a sanctuary optimized for true R&R.

No matter what your idea of sanctuary is, we've collected three of the most haven-like bedroom suites in the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury world at the moment.
