In Washington, D.C., where justice comes first, the term “master bedroom” is being phased out of floor plans due to its negative connotations: slavery, on the one hand; maleness, on the other. According to Gawker, “architects and contractors are looking for a more accurate and more politically correct replacement.”
And yet so far, the ideas are rather pallid. Gawker cites “owner’s suite,” which we’ve seen in high-end properties in our area; owner’s bedroom, which we’ve never come across; and “mastre bedroom,” which is quite obviously ridiculous.
Anyone have better ideas?
