Before you walk inside..turn and look behind you through this rose covered arbor. Is is just beginning to come out. Then walk inside.
To the right inside the front door, is a door leading into the kitchen and next to it is this little back hutch filled with collectables..
...to the right is this tiny inset window that looks out to the front yard..
Right next to the black hutch, you turn a corner and there is a little door here..storage and a little set of stairs leading up...
Up you go and around this corner. The little lantern really works..and on up the stairs..
and through this door is the sweetest little room..and bath.
There is a little built in bed for one..but underneath can be pulled out so that two may sleep here. It is a place to cuddle up with a good book or take a nap. Really cozy.
A better view of the little bed..
This a peek inside the bathroom door that is at the end of the little bed. There is also a huge leather chair next to the window..but I ..alas..can't find it. I will print it later if it shows up...
This a the little sink. The walls have all been done in the orange groves of Riverside, CA. by a local artist. Shelia at Note Song has a complete layout of the bathrooms. She was kind enough to do them for me and does a much better job.
I wanted to at least add the picture of the bird..and then we will move on downstairs.
This is not a good shot but you can at least see the way the ceiling is peaked and the little shutters at the windows. I am NOT a good photographer.
Back out of the little guest room and downstairs..
I'll stop here and pick up the downstairs tomorrow and if not..then on Monday. I hope you enjoyed that little tour. I wish I was better at this...but I'm trying! I need to get more shots of the beautiful wall paper. They really are lovely.
