  2. Oh Happy Day!!!! A new room in your house to view!! You have impeccable taste and such an interesting mix of things. I am in love with the mirror and tapestry, and am totally intrigued by the candle/wire thing! Gorgeous. Just gorgeous!!!

  5. Gorgeous, Joan! I love the styling on that chest...those stacked mirrors are a great look. And my love for your lamps continues to grow...that green one is stunning. Wish I had Dan's skills! Thank you for sharing this lovely room.

  6. Yet another room in your home that I love. Especially the multiple mirrors, which is something i am contemplating for our bedroom makeover. Thanks for sharing, liz

  7. Joan,
    You have the best lamps. I loved each and everyone...the green lamp with the wicker shade is so charming.

    What a wonderful guest bedroom...guests will be instantly comfortable and not want to leave! :-)

  9. Wow, Joan, what a beautiful room. I adore that antique chest of drawers. And how creative of you to place three mirrors one in front of each other! That sexy chair against the wall is wonderful too. The room looks ready for a visitor. When can I "check in"?

  10. Soooo inviting!
    Have any open dates for this room? Kidding of course but it looks so comfy and cozy.

    I noticed you have an area rug in this room as well as others in your home. How are they for cleaning and wear? We need to replace the rug in our kitchen area and I do like the look of the sisal rugs but not sure how they would hold up with 8 large paws.

  11. I love your style of vintage elegant simplicity. Of all the many many decorating blogs out there (and I have personally bookmarked over a hundred of my favorites), your style comes closest to the look I'd emulate.

  14. Gorgeous, as always! You make the most wonderful lamps.
    And that seashell on the dresser!!--did you actually find that? Also, did you make this headboard yourselves as you did in the master?

    ReplyDelete
  15. You did it again. So full of interest and charm.
    What do you think of painting old furniture? Do you think it is a passing fad and that we'll be sorry for it later? I notice you don't use a lot of painted pieces, but I think your antiques are a higher quality than I have.

  18. Oh I just love the layered mirrors. Fabulous guest room Joan, your guests are very lucky.

  19. Your vignettes throughout your home exude personality. I, like you, enjoy the casualness of a mirror or piece of art leaning against a wall rather than formally hung. It is very obvious that you have a flair for and a love of old homes,

    ReplyDelete
  20. Another beautiful guest room, Joan! I can't wait to get the details about your room. Your decor is timeless.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Lovely! I'm curious...what is the paint color on the walls and trim?
    Thanks!

  22. awesome, as always, joan. even with very traditional pieces, you make it fresh (stacking mirrors and the "skin" fabric on the chairs.) I'm sure there is a great story behind the mounted candle holders. (what is that anyway?) love your space. donna

  23. So what's up with the Mittens sponsorship? Isn't this blog about design not politics?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Home before dark- I have not a clue what you are talking about.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Is that real alligator skin on the chair seat? If it is, I'd love to know how you were able to get a piece that large.

    I love the room!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love the sculptural sconce thing, whatever that is. That's a piece of art.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well another winning design! The layered mirrors look fabulous! The twisted handled metal pieces have me intrigued! I'm partial to French toast just so you know!! I'll work for room and board! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. perfect as usual. Love your lamps

    ReplyDelete
  29. Beautiful! Love the layered mirrors and the pics of the view from across the hall. I was wondering if you would do a post on how you clean your antiques after you purchase them.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Home before dark- I was just informed by a friend what "mittens" were..... So I now know you must be referring to some ad you saw on the blog.
    I take it you are not aware that the ads that "you" see on the blog are not the same ads that I or someone else see. The ads are direct marketed to your "location" and to your personal "searches"... for example if I google Pottery Barn, then I'm sure to see Pottery Barn ads on the blog. I do NOT pick and choose ads that appear on the blog.... the ads have more to do with your local and what YOU google/click. And, "yes" this is a design blog.

  31. Thanks, Joan. I doubt what I goggle would = Romney! The fact that I am in Kansas might make sense to someone's database, but not what I personally believe. I have to say to say all things being equal I think Ella is the greater truth!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh I love this room, Joan! And the layered mirrors are fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I am always amazed at your layering.....not amazed really....cause you are so good at it!! I need to have my green balustrade made into a lamp!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. feeling the peaceful calm of a room with soul and sooooo undecorated. just dreamylovely.

    smiles to you.

  35. Among the details, I love the dresser, that green baluster (which I am assuming is Chinese), and that small seascape painting. Mostly what I love to look at is the pictures showing the flow and connection from room to room.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Another beautiful and serene room. I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Such a restful and peaceful room.......lovely job!

    ReplyDelete
  38. ...i do love it...each detail speaks of you...

    ReplyDelete
  39. I've decided to move in with you!

    If you have guests that linger a bit too long I would truly understand why. You have a wonderful eye, great style and have kept the house consistent from room to room {a talent that not everyone has}.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love everything you do Joan!
    Your guest bedroom is no exception...
    I admire how you set your dresser up against the drapes, it looks great! Only you can break the rules so beautifully!!!!
    I love seeing more of your 39 lamps too!!!!
    I think we share a lamp fetiish!!!
    I ordered the shades for my "Crespi" lamps... Thanks again!!!

  43. Oh my goodness. You are absolutely amazing. I LOVED everything. Every single detail is so beautiful. You have a gift/talent that is beyond anything I've ever looked at. I'm so excited to see another room. best regards. Wenda Scott maggieandme52@yahoo.com

  44. In a cluttered, frenetic life your blog speaks of kindness and peace and is very much appreciated.

  45. Such a wonderful room... Lucky guests you have Joan... xv

  46. Another room tour, yay! I actually went and compared this with the North Guest Room, just to see how they go together. Gorgeous! I love all of the textures. Can't wait for the details post. Need to know the story on that wall sconce (sculpture?).

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh it all looks so beautiful and I love the colors that you used!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Lovely as always. Such a beautiful peaceful room. Love everything about it. :)

  49. Everything is so perfect and bright. How lovely. I can only wish to get it this right one day.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Beautiful space. It says welcome. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I wish, like you, I had the "sense" to create such a beautiful home because I know what I like when I see it, I just have a darn hard time creating it!

    ReplyDelete
  52. So pretty...love the three mirrors on the chest that you can see as you enter the beautiful room. Just the items on the chest let's you know from way down the hall that you are in for a treat as you enter the room.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I am sure we will be very comfortable there :)

    I do like the layered mirrors ..

    ReplyDelete
  54. I would have very sweet dreams in that gorgeous room, not that I am hinting or anything.

    ReplyDelete
  55. yes! what are the paint colors?? is it halo again? halo is the main color in my house and i just adore it. it gave me such confidence to pick it having "seen" it at your house.

    you have such a gift for styling :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Joan...I loved your comment to anonymous. I couldn't see enough pictures of your home. Detail of everything. I also liked what Nancy said and that just fits me to a "T"... "I know what I like when I see it...I just can't make it happen" best, Wenda

    ReplyDelete
  57. Love the starburst mirror...so many of them look...well new...that one is a beauty! I bet you found it on one of your forraging trips!
