“She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness”
Don’t you look forward to a little get away? I always love it when I arrive somewhere and it feels inviting! Whether it be a fabulous resort or someone’s home, the atmosphere can just announce “Welcome-we have been expecting you!!!” We all have overnight guests in our homes at some time or the other…so, how do we extend a warm welcome and make them feel comfortable during their time with us? I have often read that you should sleep in your guest room(s) to make sure that everything is inviting and that all the creature comforts have been provided! This guest room is small with only a twin bed, but there is a large writing desk and chair that provides a great place to read and relax! Come take a look…we invite you to be our guest!! What guest would not love being served breakfast in bed!! The twin bed is an antique with a rich patina and is outfitted with a custom canopy. I have a love of fabric and have used different patterns and textures in this guest room! The floral fabric is the primary one with a peach stripe as a secondary! Solids, plaids, animal prints, and a touch of toile add rich layers to the sage colored walls! The large neck roll pillow is great for your feet or for propping your neck while reading! The top of the duvet is a Schumacher floral fabric and the underside is a peach stripe with a fluffy down comforter inside! A light breakfast of coffee and a blueberry muffin is served on a wicker tray along with the morning paper and a current magazine for leisurely reading! I love to fill a basket with water, fruit, chocolate, shortbread cookies, and chips, in case our guest gets the late night munchies! A scented candle is always a nice touch in a guest room! Books are stacked on the desk for reading or just thumbing through! The old hand-painted tool box contains a sewing kit and a few items that a guest might need. I like to furnish toiletry items-we all need a little pampering, occasionally! A small florentine tray holds soap, bath salts, and hair products! Fresh flowers say you are special and we are glad you have come! A magnolia bloom welcomes our guest! Three travel books and a book by a Pulitzer Prize winning author that is a professor at the University of Alabama provide reading for a guest that might have a longer stay! The writing desk has a distressed top and a beautiful antique finish. The sheep painting offers a calm and serene scene!
A floral needlepoint pillow contrasts with the velvet animal print on the chair! Have you noticed I like color and pattern?! This room is definitely a feminine space! How do you welcome an overnight guest?
