In the same way that travel can be nicer in September, house guests are easier to accommodate in our home at summer's end as well.
Neither too hot nor too cold, windows can still be flung open to air and nature, day and night.
The nursery guest room always has a mild east/west breeze for dreamy nights and blissful mornings. Chiffon curtains billow in the early light, and it's a perfect place for tea and a good read before the household wakes up.
The Sept. 1994 Victoria suggests Savoring Indian Summer. It was my inspiration for this guestroom arrangement.
One could begin with tea in my Johnson Bros Bouquet teacup and Stafforshire Meakin saucer. The tiny pale blue rose inside is a charming and delicate foil to the autumn brown transferware.
Perusing a pretty book or magazine is my favorite way to start up my foggy brain first thing in the morning. I could skip tea or coffee easier than giving up a browse.
My old Victorias are also the best thing I could think of leaving at a guestroom bedside.
I've dressed up the details for this post, but the white linens are just as they were laid for my Brother-in-law's two night stay. White is a classic, and not too fussy for masculine taste.
Thanks so much for visiting! Ciao! for now!
