House Tour: The Guest Room

Good evening, everyone!

I just finished watching the latest episode of Downton Abbey on PBS tonight...ah, SO GOOD. (Season One is available on Netflix and Season Two episodes are viewable on PBS's Web site.) I've been completely sucked in by this beautiful-looking and drama-filled series. I cannot recommend it enough!

Anyway, hope you've all been better than I was this past week. Monday night the flu descended on me and I spent the next 4 days in bed with chills, aches, and fever.


Needless to say, I haven't been up to much! I'd had high hopes of making a pair of flannel pajama bottoms but perhaps I can give them a go this week.

Anyway, when wondering what to blog about after a week of doing nearly nothing, I realized I never posted photos of our guest room for the house tour I kicked off in the fall.

So, let me get back into the blogging groove with a few shots of the guest room, which is furnished in a simple farmhouse style. 

So, have you been lucky enough to escape the flu, or other sick bugs so far this winter?



  1. What a beautiful room! Your guests are lucky to stay there :) Hope you feel better!

  2. Beautiful! I love the rustic simplicity of it.

  3. So sorry you were sick:( I love the guest room, it is just beautiful, I especially like the ladder and the wreath on the door. Very homey!!

  4. Oh Erin....this room is so delightful!!!!

    When can I come visit and be a 'guest'????

    Hope you feel better soon.

  8. Oh cool Erin, i love the ladder over the bed! That's such a cute idea. Your whole house is as cozy as anything... still stalking Karan for some of your heavenly candles, the wintergreen was the best ever, but it is gone, i burned every last drop of it!
