A Suite Retreat: My In-Laws Guestroom

My mother-in-law wanted a cozy room for guests to relax in while staying at her home.

We reused the bedroom furniture that used to be in her master bedroom in their previous home.

The cozy English armchair was reupholstered in an embroidered silk.

New/vintage marble based lamps were found on Ebay.

A European inspired chandelier was installed. (I couldn't decide what throw pillows I liked best)

Printed linen roman shades were installed rather than drapes.

The view of Long Island Sound (and the neighbor's pool)
