One of my favorite rooms in our house is the guest room. This has always been a calm and soothing space in the house. It is an upstairs bedroom that was my daughter's room before college. It has great sentimental value and it houses my mother's secretary and a quilt my mother made. It has a window seat that desparately needs a cushion made, but hey, we've only lived in the house 17 years, we don't want to rush things!
This isn't a large room but the light in the mornings is wonderful. These two things make it difficult to photograph well.
This little sign bids our guest good night.
This is a ceramic tray that decorates the bed when guests aren't expected.
It moves to the window seat when guests come.
I change the little arrangement with the seasons.
Just had to show a close-up of the quilt I use at the end of the bed that was made by my mother 38 years ago--this is the backside. The front features each of the 50 state birds, hand embroidered on antique satin and framed with brown velveteen.
I'll show you the front of it another time--stay tuned!
This is a matching nightstand that I found, years after purchasing the bed, at a garage sale down the street! Such a surprising find. The lamp used to be green and the lampshade is made of corrugated cardboard.
This is the view on the opposite wall of the bed.
This is a secretary from my childhood home and houses my teacup collection.
You can see them here.
Hope you enjoyed the tour.
Thanks for reading, Robin
