  6. The first thing that came to mind when I saw the room was the word 'restful'. I guess that's a good word for a bedroom, but it was beyond that - I saw 'rest' as in retreat, silence, peace, serenity. I like that you have left it relatively spare.

  7. Joan, This is such a lovely guest bedroom. Any guest would feel the warmth and welcoming feel to this room. You seem to have a lot of natural light in your home. If I haven't mentioned it before, Happy New Year to you.

  11. You're going to think I'm nuts, but ALL day long, I've been texting my family and friends to ask if they have a specific looking basket for me to use for a photo shoot I have in mind. YOUR BASKET (by the bed) IS PERFECT!!! I SO wish I could just pop on over to your house and borrow it. Please oh please tell me that's not a one of a kind antique piece, and that I can just pick one up at my local Target? xoxo!

  12. I love the room, Joan. The bedding is beautiful, especially the long pillow. I also like the idea of using an oversized quilt at the bottom of the bed...it works well if you have a queen size bed and can use a king quilt. The color of it is a favorite of mine. I have a nearly identical rug, except mine is smaller and I use it in my kitchen. It is lovely for guests that you have enough room to have a desk and chair in the room...AND a chandelier. It is all so elegant.
    All the best...Victoria

  13. Just as lovely as I thought it would be!!

  19. Hi Joan,

    Just lovely! You seemed to be using the deep red as an accent color...something different than your other rooms. You always keep it interesting. Thanks for the inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  20. What I am loving is your use of antique textiles and that gorgeous rug in your guest room! I knew you had a room waiting on me!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, how I want to make a reservation! Could it be for a weekend? I would love to follow you around and LEARN from you! This room is stunning. Did you make the bolsters on the bed??? Gorgeous. XO, Pinky

    ReplyDelete
  39. Any availability for extended stay this March? Gorgeous! I think I may have the same quilt - mine is in orange though. Did you get it at Soft Surroundings?

  40. Hi Joan,
    Everytime I see one of your reveals I'm in awe! I luv the detail you put in your rooms.

    Just curious, is that crown molding I see?

    I can't wait to read about the details. I enjoy your stories of how and where you acquired your antiques.

  45. Is there any corner of your home that isn't absolutely drool-worthy? Love this room... the rug, the pillows, the art, the accessories, ah... and the lamp. Did you make that?

    Gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  50. So beautiful - very peaceful, too! You have so many special touches, but I think my favorite part is the antique chair at the desk. I want a chair just like that.... I know one day I am going to find one that I can redo. Again, the entire room is gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  51. The rug! The artwork! The quilt! The entire color scheme. :D Quiet, but enough color to be exciting. Perfection. love love love!

  55. A guest room dedicated to guests! My North guest room disappeared last year, when I acknowledged ts real function as storage. The South one is still in operation, but is just a bed insinuated in a room lined with bookshelves.

  58. Looks like it is ready for guest. I can't wait to read the "details"...those pillows on the bead are to die......

    ReplyDelete
  59. Ohhh! Just love it all! I'm swooning over the bed pillows. So inspiring. I smiled when I saw the desk with the ottoman under it. I'm on the hunt for a console or table or desk to put next to my living room chair and be able to scoot the ottoman under it. I've been tweaking my first floor, painting most of the walls Benjamin Moore, Titanium after reviewing your paint list. Thank you for all the wonderful pictures!

  63. You have impeccable taste! I would love to know where you got the little round bedside table and the pretty grey? coverlet at the end of the bed. Also the paint color.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I love all the neutral textures and the soft reds of the rug and paintings. Elegant simplicity.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Joan,
    The mix of much loved and new is a winning combination, especially the way you always put things together. The new finish on the much loved bed frame is beautiful.
    And I want the long pillow - did you make the cover for it?

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love this room, every detail. I hope you will tell us about the bed skirt when you get to the details. It is fabulous.

    I do love it too! Your collections are amazing and your placement of each item is perfect! Love the balustrade lamp, bedding and the big wide pillow! 5 star!! :-)

  80. Love the bedroom, where did you get the pillows?

    ReplyDelete
  81. What a lovely elegant, welcoming, cosy, stylish room - beautifully decorated and presented - looks so lived in and as though it just evolved magically rather than being contrived and overdecorated. You have such a skill for doing that.

    ReplyDelete
  82. What a perfect guest room...it looks like you've thought of everything. I love the painting above the bed and the desk is just gorgeous. A perfect reading lamp and tray to hold jewelry or whatever...even a rug as your feet hit the floor in the morning...oh and the bed linens are well...to die for. Your guests will never want to leave!

    ReplyDelete
  83. So restful. I particularly love the writing desk. I have one that's very similar made by Wright Table. Mine is distressed to look old; yours looks like the real thing.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Joan,
    As always, your style is so beautiful. I truly hope you and Dan are approached about creating a coffee table book of your home. I love to revisit the images as they always inspire me with ideas for my own home.

  86. The entire room is so peaceful and welcoming...just beautiful. But oh, my. Oh, my. I have been wanting to do a needlepoint bell pull (or two? or three?) from Elizabeth Bradley but wasn't sure how I'd use it once it was done. Now I know. Exactly! Thank you!!!
