After our twin daughters married in 2002 and moved to their new homes, I converted their bedroom into a reading/garden/relaxing room. I took the plunge and painted the walls a deep Country Rose color and used roses in many accents.
We enjoyed reading , talking and having a place that was set aside from the rest of the house.
But, we did not have a guest room for when guests or our adult children came to visit. As grandchildren came along we needed a bedroom again.
Though I enjoyed the vibrant color for a (short) time, my preference for white and neutral colors won out and we were ready once again for those sweet little visitors to snuggle into bed when their little eyes grow sleepy.
