"Hospitality is a form of worship." -Jewish Proverb
Our bright, serene little guest suite is tucked nicely in its own private corner. Situated on the west side of the house it isn't illuminated with morning sunlight the way our master is, which means guests can comfortably sleep late if they prefer. The goal with this room was both comfort and beauty. We wanted it to feel much like a bed & breakfast: lush linens, soothing colors, lots of charm, fluffy pillows and cozy blankets. No fuss, but certainly ambiance.
Let's take a little tour!
What I love most about this room is the history. My Grandad's kerosene lamps, my great Aunt's piano, a favorite quilt hand sewn by my great Grandma George. There are odds and ends passed down from my Grandma Suzie, to my mom, to me, a beautiful little desk I fell in love with at a local antique store that Josh later surprised me with, a collection of beautiful hankies belonging to both my great Grandma and Josh's. So many lovely memories filling a single room.
With the exception of a small handful of items, everything it this space from the mirrors to the chandelier were either salvaged from a junk heap or picked up at flea markets and estate sales. Stacks of vintage sheet music, huge spools of lace, weathered old shutters and window panes, a collection of stamped post cards from the 30's and 40's... so many things I love.
This cozy room sees tons of traffic with friends and family constantly passing thru, but we're always taking reservations.
Come visit us! We make a killer brunch ;-)
