Another of those words, for me, is 'cozy'. I automatically have a negative reaction or, if not negative, then certainly questioning. It is kind of like when you receive an email with the subject "You're gonna love this" and you think, "Let me decide." Hard headed? Stubborn? I prefer tenacious. I'm also a little fond of recalcitrant.
On we go. Here in WNC the temps are toying with us but, for the most part, we're going down. With colder weather and holidays approaching, we are thinking of...wait for it...cozy bedrooms. There! I said it. I found some pleasant and inviting rooms. Are they cozy? I leave that up to you.
Cozy? Definitely a friendly welcome. Who will visit and have their "visions of sugar plums" in this room?
Peaceful. Is that a matelassé or a knitted blanket? I used the best white knitted blanket I ever found in a client's guestroom and I wish I had kept it.
A fluffy bed against a backdrop of bricks. I just realized that, so far, I'm on an iron bed theme. Unintentional unless some long since memory is taking me there. There were lots of iron beds in my growing up years.
Although the photo is a bit fuzzy I couldn't resist sharing it. To me the girdles on the wall are obnoxious. I willingly admit to being fond of that word. Is this shabby chic? That phrase really is an oxymoron, isn't it?
A little more refined and I can breathe again. I've recently become aware that with the popularity of sleigh beds, we've lost dusters.
Ah, serenity. Refined and lovely.
I like all of the rooms I've shown and would happily search out my cozy in any of them.
Sleep warm. Sleep well.
