I recently toured the most beautifully furnished rooms in the Beehive House in Salt Lake City. Though not original to the home, the decoration is from the same period. Many of the sitting rooms were dressed in red, just coincidental with the Christmas season, as they are always that way. But of course I was most drawn to the gorgeous white decor.
It's so easy to imagine inhabiting such a lovely place, and always inspiring. I loved all the fine French antiques.
A harp in the music room.
Many wonderful crystal chandeliers lit the rooms.
A gorgeous hand-painted wardrobe with a matching chair.
Jeweled antique chandeliers.
A festive Christmas dining room echoes a happy holiday of the past.
Sumptuous lace falls from a guilded valance.
The gorgeous antiques seemed endless.
But I was even more impressed with the fine linens in the bedrooms. Yummy!
Did I love this basin and pitcher laid over snowy linen? Ah, yes. . . . I'm afraid I lagged behind all the other guests to snap these photos, and found it hard to move on.
Gorgeous quilts and bedding.
I love the tiny bed chambers best.
What a gracious time and place to have lived. But I would be thrilled to simply live next door!
Oh, dream on. . . .
Thanks so much for popping by in such a busy season!
Ciao! for now!
