A Quiet Respite

Not everything in this room is black and white, but these are the colors I tend toward for a soothing, restful place to sleep.

Like the embroidered vintage pillowcases (from my dear Mama again). And black and white pictures of our babies in place of a headboard.

Curtains instead of doors on the closets (were supposed to be "temporary", but have been up for a few years) a~buzz with regal honeybees.

A little place for writing notes. My sister painted the beautiful rhododendron bloom on the wall above the desk.

I kept the wonderful bouquets of wheat from our wedding, behind a picture of us as bride and groom.

Sweet maidenhair fern.

Isn't this a lovely stained glass? Grapes and vineyards just thrill me!

Lovely, indeed! Perhaps you should come and help me decorate my place of respite!

Such a gorgeous room! Your mom gave you such a nice gift in those pillowcases. So pretty.
You must sleep like a baby!

I love the peaceful flow of your home. I tend to be a little on the bold side with my decor, but I can truly appreciate other tastes....after all that is why God made chocolate and vanilla right?
