guest room


this is where i stay when i visit my twin sister.
who would want to leave?
not me.

but i always do—
knowing it's always waiting for me.
it's like staying at a wonderful bed and breakfast.

{see and read more about it here.}

I see why you like vintage! Love this series of shots and I can also see why you like staying here when you visit your sister.

What a fantastic space! I lived in an old midtown apartment many years ago and LOVED it. Even though it had no a/c. If I had my druthers, I'd have an old apartment in the city now (in addition to my current suburban home). My getaway!

Oh that first image just made me let out a deep sigh. How peaceful. The light is beautiful, as is the greenery outside the window.

looks nice.

i think that font is meant to be used with less or no tracking. the letters are supposed to touch. just a tip.

yes i do, angel cake. but you have to not talk to me for one more day, 'cause my post tomorrow is for you.

{anonymous, thank you—i'll keep that in mind. it's a great font though, no?}

beautiful shots - isn't it wonderful to sleep in a space that is "yours" away from home? they still call my mom's room at my brother's house "mimi's room".

Those colors- they would instantly put me at ease..
I am glad you like my friend's work!I personally love his work.

Hmmm, nice. My cousin in Chicago has a peaceful and vintage room where I stay once a year. And my mom has a nice guest room, too, when I go there, although not rally vintage but with a nice view out the back window.

So nice, you're lucky you have a place to get away to. I have the woods and the river. I'll bet the bed is softer where you go.

Again great pictures, great post.

It looks so peaceful and happy :)

Where do I go? Usually outside somewhere, or on a little trip with my friends and/or family. But I really think just being home is the greatest place to be for me. I'm so happy here and it's so peaceful like your sister's guest room.

Gorgeous! I love how she fashioned a window seat!

Claire said...

the details on the chest of drawers is beautiful.

where do i go?

a cottage in the country, with a fireplace, where the birds sing to me in the rising sun and where calvin brushes the hair out of my eyes as he kisses me awake.
