My Mother's House Tour: Bedroom & Bath

Today I'm showing you the Master Bedroom, Bathroom and what used to be called the "Toy Room" when the grandkids were little.  It doesn't really have a name now so we still call it the toy room.
The bedroom is a tranquil space.  My dad made the shelves that flank both sides of the bed.  Their room is small and they have never been able to rearrange the bed.  It's been there for as long as I can remember.  Yet they find ways of making it fresh and different.  Here are some of the clocks they have collected.

This is in the corner of the room on the other side of the bed.  I should have gotten more pictures of the whole room and what they've done with the closets.

The bathroom is next to the bedroom and it is equally lovely.  A long time ago this bathroom started out with pink and red tile on the wall. (Am I remembering right?)  They have done alot of work in here over the years.   I should have gotten more pictures.  You can see the other wall in the mirror and a peek of the chandelier.  They have installed beadboard on the ceiling.  The cabinets are painted white, and of course the loveliest of accessories compliment the room.
This is the formerly known as toy room.  This has been a bedroom, tv room, grandkid play room and now it's kind of the collection room. Just look at all the old wine bottles ( I'm sure there's a name for them) and the old suitcases and scales.  My mom had a vision for those shelves and my dad built them.  They are solid and chunky!

This is the nature wall.  Birdsnests, eggs, old honeycombs, seashells of every kind.

And we can't forget about my dad's collection.  He loves airplanes and trucks and cars.

These trucks look like the real one he restored and sits in his shop.  Is there anything these two can't do?

I failed to get a picture of the closet in this room.  Old paper on the wall with pictures of my mom's mom and her mom and my grandma's wedding dress on display next to my mom's wedding dress.  A great display.

Another room tomorrow!

I am amazed at the great pictures you took - you and your camera do a great job. Your narrative is so good. You should work for a decorating magazine.
