This is the guest bedroom
where you will stay
when you come to visit.
The antique four poster rope bed
was mine from my childhood bedroom.
When I got married, my mother and dad
brought it to me and my new groom.
At the time,
we were living in our very first home,
a small Victorian outside of Chicago.
I was going through my
"Victorian/chintz/cabbage rose" phase of decorating
and the house fit the part perfectly.
My sweet husband said,
"I will live in a pink room,
I will sleep under ruffled sheets
with a bedspread covered with roses,
but I will not sleep under a canopy!"
(Couldn't blame him for that.)
So, we didn't and never have
put the canopy back on...
not even sure where it is!?
|We found the new tapestry pillow on a trip to Paris.|
|The French peasant figural lamps came from an auction.|
|Little vintage marble box full of intaglio tokens.|
His mother gave me the beautiful
heirloom cotton crocheted coverlet
that her mother had made.
|My husband bought this for me for our anniversary one year while antiquing and I framed it.|
|My mother-in-law gave me this gorgeous French porcelain tray! I love it!|
|This little bisque couple sat on my grandfather's dresser when I was little.|
I forgot to mention the red color on the walls.
I think everyone should have a red room somewhere.
Though I love almost every color on a wall,
there is something about a cozy red room
that invites you in and begs you to stay.
That's why the guest room is red.
It sets a perfect mood for guests,
don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by.
You are always welcome
to come and stay!
