    While very pretty to look at, this is just way too "busy" for me to actually try to sleep in.

    Our bedroom is kind of an attic bedroom, since we live in a 1 1/2 story cottage. Our bedroom has all those slanty wall/ceilings and many head bumps have been sustained over the years.
    Mine too. Except for the cottage part.

    I've been in that room (twice!) and it is quite wonderful. I agree with Happy that it's quite busy as is, but I could certainly live with a modified, more subdued version. My house is nowhere near being in Beauport's league, so my takeaways from places like this are always just little snippets of ideas.

    Rosa, this is so cool for me that you have been in that house! I love that room. Is that wallpaper on the walls or an artist’s work?

    I love that bedroom!!! It's like a Secret Garden bedroom.

    I lived in a Cape Cod, and my bedroom had lots of slanted roofs, and my father had built some wonderful built-in shelves and dressers. It was a T-shaped room, and I had two twin beds in one part of the T and the other part was my little reading/hobby area.

    Built-ins are almost a must for those slanty spaces. And I love the craftsmanship of built-ins. A lot of Shaker houses had them--you can make the most of space that way.

    I am trying to figure out what kind of cabinetry I would like to have in my bedroom. I need one closet type wardrobe thing. Not sure what else.I can’t have DH build them because they wont be done until ?i am 85 years old! Or dead.

    But if I put an order about now with the Amish guys, I would have them in about a year.

    IL: Here is some info about the wallpaper: https://www.historicnewengland.org/e...ct/?gusn=56877
    It is a wonderfully quirky property; I love so much about it. It's well worth a visit if you are ever in the area of Gloucester, MA as well as the nearby Hammond Castle.
