Master Bedroom

Master Bedroom
The master bedroom should feel like an oasis, safe from the hustle of everyday life. Area designer Margaret Donaldson says clients are allotting more square footage—or even an entire wing—to this important space. “It’s become an enclave unto itself,” she notes. Here, she dreams up the accoutrements for her ideal master suite
