House Tour #2

This ornate headboard reminds me a little bit of hand-carved screens or room dividers I've seen in some countries.

That is huge and it does look like the room dividers.

I need a headboard but I think I want one that is padded, easy for reclining while reading in bed.

A very impressive headboard.

I now know why you and DH leave for Mazatlan on a yearly basis. Tonight's temperatures in St Paul read -13 [forecast is -15] with 30 mph winds. The current wind chill reads -35 degrees.

Now keep in mind they changed the formula for the wind chill about five years ago. I heard this on the radio today. Under the old wind chill system, it would read -65 to -70. That temperature has not been felt in St Paul since the early 1970's.

I was outside this evening with the winds and temps. Oh my goodness! I have envy of the Mazatlan temperatures.

Before I continued scrolling down I too thought it was screens. Nice shot. Lovely bed.

Oh how beautiful! And wonderful linens too. I've seen this sort of thing (not such beautiful quality I might add) for sale as a headboard in France - in a catalogue funnily enough. Carved wooden headboards.

Beautiful photograph. That must be some house.

Beautiful headboard.

Fancy! Do you get to sleep in it?

That's a beautiful bed. I want to take a nap there. I think they did use dividers to make this headboard.

how stunning! I love the monochrome effect they have created, with the patterns on the soft furnishing sort of echoing those on the headboard.

Goddness me, that is what you call a headboard!

Nikon said...

Wow, a lot of work went into that!

It recalls to my memory the film Frida played by Selma Hayeck. A great movie and a great interpreter.

Heather said...

Now that's a bed! Love the iron work and pillows.

Like Slinger, we've had horrendous windchills in Wis. this weekend ~ this following a paralyzing blizzard midweek, with another foot of snow predicted for the week. I am so ready for spring! *whimper*

I just love the idea of house tours. Would carved wood such as this be quite typical of the country/region?

Fénix - Bostonscapes said...

Yes, they remind me of wood carved beds I've seen in Spain and Morocco (the headboards weren't as tall, though).

Seeing that wooden lace, I immediately thought of moucharabieh which can be seen in many Arabian countries.
And I'll take a nap here, me too!
