Every winter I spend the slower times working on something around the property. There are no end of projects to choose from no matter how many winters pass. One winter I rebuilt the porch. Another I remodeled the Hideaway. Last winter the Seashore bath was overhauled. Painting something is a given. But what about this year?
My first major project was foot surgery. Or as I like to think of it, the pirate-in-training extravaganza. It has been nine weeks and I might be leaving my peg-leg and crutches behind soon.
One of my next projects is to refresh our Whirlpool Suite. Although I still love the red walls and cherry furniture, it may be time for a change. The suite is the only room in the house that pays homage to Victorian decor.
So you tell me: keep the theme with red and gold or move on to something else? Is something more modern more appealing? Something less red? Although I don’t find starkly modern hotel rooms particularly romantic, I will also admit that I am an old fart that might not know anything about what people find romantic these days.
I am wide open to suggestions. Give me your two cents worth. If I follow your suggestion I’ll make it worth your while to come and check out the finished product.
