I’d say the room that has been hardest for me to decorate is the master suite. For the longest time, I’ve had my heart set on a giant free-standing clawfoot tub with a ruffled shower curtain and shaggy bath mat. Yet my husband? He wants a Finnish sauna.

And after searching my inspiration files for anything that would work with cedar, I came up sorely empty-handed. Until I stumbled on this beauty:
