Into the Deep...

Ever wondered what the Innkeepers' Quarters look like? Well, here's a glance at the sweetest suite in the house!:

The Bathroom...

We did the bathroom in hues of blues and whites, taking our inspiration from lovely Victorian porcelain pieces. For our bathroom door, we actually used an old exterior entry door with stained glass windows. Instead of the normal built-in cabinets for storage, we purchased an antique sideboard and treated the wood to resist moisture. For the sink/vanity, we bought an antique night stand and converted it. The sink bowl is a beautiful blue & white porcelain vessel sink, and is accompanied by a wall mounted brass faucet. The mirror is a fully recessed bathroom mirror with glass shelves.

A fully restored antique claw foot bath tub big enough to fit my 6 foot tall husband!

Double-jetted walk-in shower with fossil fish tiles (collected by me in Wyoming).

Oh, did I mention the bathroom also has heated flooring?

The Bedroom -

(These are early pictures, when we were just moving in)

A lovely wood stove to keep us warm on those cold winter nights! We used the thick moulding that lines three of the walls for our immense book collection.

Shoe storage! This is my closet...

My loom, where I spend much of my time during the winter...

View standing by the loom, looking at the "sitting area" around the woodstove.
