{Our Rose Suite Bedroom}

Finally you get to see one more room of Our Rose Suite: its-Bedroom! 
Before, I did show you the entrance, outside and inside. 
Links to those previous posts you find below. 
Now we open that door into the bedroom... Please, come on in!
That's our Rose Suite Bedroom!
Queen size bed that we bought in our next city, here in Georgia. 
The night stands in the USA are way too wide for fitting, so we bought them in The Netherlands and had these solid-oak night-stands 'cherry' stained, to match the oak veneer bed.
Same Spanish Volcano beige tile floor with pearl grout, as throughout the entire Rose Suite.
Pure cotton Vista rugs from Solutions, in natural.
Silver rose frame was a steal on eBay. It was lacquered YELLOW... Husband Pieter removed that layer and voilà a perfect silver frame. My precious worker bee of this very Rose Suite, deserves to be framed inside a silver frame! Angel watches over him with a rose-lamp. Limoges porcelain pin dish is from France.
Crocheted filet lace is done by me.
The builder of the Rose Suite is quite pleased with the fruits of his hard labor!
Can you imagine that this once was a mount of 60 metric tons of dirt?...
The pin dish matches the all cotton French +Yves Delorme bed linens.
Another oak-night-stand just fits in there! (Darn those Text-Enhance words; I hyphenate words to avoid them... in case you wondered).
The entire Rose Suite is precision-work, using every square inch of space.
Those pulls  are from the ceiling fan... sorry for that!
Antique lamp with roses, of course! Found a new lampshade and finial for it and it was ready to go.
For the love of roses.
The green-duvet-cover reverses to white; with roses on both sides. We use a down duvet and four down-pillows.
The silver rosary, hanging over the white cross, is made of rose beads! Both come from the Sanctuary place of Kevelaer, in Germany. That is near my birth place of Horst, The Netherlands.
Angels and Roses...
A treasure found at TJ Maxx
We almost have come full circle now. 
The quilt rack is made by my best friend's Dad. 
He has passed away but this is a very nice piece to remember him by.
Above the quilt rack you see the Praying Hands by Albrecht Dürer 1471-1528.
We especially love this piece of art from such a great Renaissance artist who created many lovely woodcuts and engravings. Read more about Albrecht Dürer's Bio at Artsy.net (click on pink hyperlink).
The vanity is from Spain, we got it at Home Expo in Atlanta, it was a showroom model.
It was exactly what we were looking for, with one hole for our Danish Damixa faucet!
Next to the door, beside the vanity, are nice shelves, built in above the pillar foot.
Remember those huge concrete masses that Pieter had to wack off?
This is how we utilized the space. Narrow pillar above gave room for shelving.
Porcelain light-switch-plates with roses!
We got them made for us. Don't know if this lady still makes them but I have her old email address, provided it still works after eight years...
Better view of the shelving next to the door and the vanity.
Small size for American standards but this Spanish vanity was perfect for our purpose!
Just between two pillar feet we could place the shower. 
You see the vent for the air-conditioning above the mirror? That's the cooling and heating. Pieter did build all the ducting in-between the ceiling and the floor of the upstairs home. Quite a job.
The Apollo, one handle faucet, the wall lights, soap holder, glass holder, towel rings, towel hooks, Aquaspray Plus handheld shower-set with one handle shower faucet, toilet-roll holder, small faucet for little sink in toilet. All that was brought back inside our suitcases on our trip to Mom & Dad's 55th Wedding Anniversary in The Netherlands. All our chrome pieces are from Damixa, Denmark. The entire house we got those Danish faucets etc. and we love them. 
Clever Pieter did make a pull  for the wall light, to use as a switch, which is built in behind the tiles.
He did so much thinking out for all the details; incredible job.
Yes, the vanity shelf is also Danish and it came home inside the suitcase with us!
The chrome holders for the mirror are Danish too but the beveled glass mirror we had custom made here in Dublin, Georgia.
Do you like it so  far?
Cute chrome hook for hand towels; also Danish.
All that Danish chrome came home inside the suitcases...!
When visiting my French-Canadian friend Hélène in Montréal, Canada I found these towels in the magazine: CHEZ SOI
CHEZ SOI est un magazine de décoration haut de gamme illustrant les plus belles résidences du Québec.
CHEZ SOI is a top of the range decoration magazine showing the most beautiful residences in Québec.
Of course, I had to have these towels; brodée de boutons de roses...
Got them at Décoration 25 and too bad they no longer had the face cloths. They were entirely with tiny rose buds embroidered. I was so in love with them!
Sissi - Rose Pink is the Yves Delorme bed set from the outlet.
Palais Royal changed into Yves Delorme.
But to us, Our Rose Suite is a Palais Royal and most guests are very happy here.
Pieter's brother Toon was our very first guest, with his Wilhelmien.
We finished it in a hurry, so we could accommodate them. 
So what do you think? 
You like this French/Danish/Spanish romantic Rose Suite look?
Eagerly I am awaiting your comments - thanks for taking your time!

  3. Oh my friend, I love everything about this room...the sweet and pretty Egyptian cotton comforter, the bed and night stand from your country. The lamp with cute flowers, the silver picture frame, all recuperated and although I must admit, I have never seen a bathroom right in the bedroom and I LOVE IT!! There's something cozy about it all, it reminds me of a little Inn we went to in Innsbruk, Switzerland, which had a bathroom right inside the bedroom, too!! I love the Rosary beads on the wall. Big hugs,

    1. Dearest Fabby,
      We were faced with this dilemma, of having to add the shower to the bedroom. Remember, this entire Rose Suite space has been dug out by Pieter. Removing 60 tons of dirt and there were 5 huge pillars that we had to work AROUND. No choice. It took a lot of thinking for making all the rooms as we have now. Quite a puzzel for working with a given and limited space! A living room, with a toilet adjacent. We figured that if you would have guests, you cannot step out of the shower... So naturally for privacy we opted for the bedroom area. But it worked. Several hotels don't provide that much space I can tell you.
      Thanks for your comments and friendship. Even if we only have been at the airport of Guayaquil, I do feel connected and certainly with your life style!
      Hugs to you,
      Mariette

  4. Dearest Mariette,
    Wow, we finally can see how your "Rose Suite Bedroom" looks like♡♡♡ As I thought, I LOVED your coordination with roses and angels SO much! Oh, I'm really touched with the rose rosary as well. It must have been very hard job as well as the joy involved to sort these arrangement out, my talented friend. I smiled the way you said to your husband that your precious worker bee deserved to be framed inside a silver frame. Yes, your wonderful worker husband looks really GORGEOUS ♬♬♬ Big praise to both of your stunning job☆☆☆
    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  5. Dear Mariette, What a gorgeous rose suite you and your beloved created. Everything is so pretty and crisp. All the details around the room are so special.
    I love your comforter and the towels that coordinate so perfectly. It is wonderful you were able to bring back fixtures in your suitcase. And your darling sink is fabulous. I love it.

    You two worked so hard, and it shows what hard work and determination can do to make your dreams come true. It all came together beautifully and you should feel very proud of your accomplishment. I can so relate to this type of work as my hubby and I have done this in many a home. But when one sees your pics knowing the before with all the dirt to remove, it is truly amazing. This is really magazine worthy my friend.

    Thank you for stopping by and your kind words for my blog anniversary. Your friendship has made it even more special and for that I am thankful.
    Love to you, Celestina Marie

      Such a compliment coming from you has even more weight, since you and your husband have traveled that road of transforming a home into a warm nest. You certainly do have a warm and lovely place now and I did follow the hard work you put into it. Friendships like this that get nurtured over the years are meaningful and it encourages us when life is rough.
      Hugs to you,

  6. Dear Sweet Mariette, your rose suite is so lovely! Your guests are very lucky to have such gracious hosts who have taken every comfort into consideration. I do love all the roses and angels, especially the wonderful linens and plaques. Your Dear Peiter deservesto have his handsome self framed in silver for all of his well thought out hard work. Every detail is so lovely, including the chrome fixtures brought back in your cases! I do love your hand crocheted angels, too. The perfect touch. xx

    1. Liebe Lea,
      Ja, mit den Lichtschalter das ist eben ein Vorteil das hier in der USA die Angebote riesig sind und auch vorteilhaft. Mit den Fliesen sollst du in Acht nehmen das unser Klima hier ganz anders ist als Deutschland und wegen der Hygiene sind Fliesen viel sauberer als Bodenteppiche. Seid ich Asthma hatte haben wir nur noch Fliesen und massive Eichenholz Böden. Pflegt sich super und mann hat nicht mehr den Staub und Probleme wie Staub Milben. Wir haben auch wegen der Klima-Anlage einen guten Filter der die frische eingeseugte Luft ständig saubert. Wir erneuern den auch rechtzeitig. Die Klima-Anlage wechselt auch dauernd die Luftfeuchtigkeit damit es immer angenehm ist drinnen, besser für die Gesundheit auch.
      Ich hoffe diese Antwort erklärt etwas mehr.

    1. Dearest Anna,
      Yes, I know about the European settings. In The Netherlands it is also the same I guess. In Italy in our apartment we had two bathrooms but you had to get out in the hallway first. Very little privacy.
      Here in the USA mainly a bedroom has an adjacent bathroom and that creates absolute privacy. Our Rose Suite we had to design it this way because we were limited within the given walls with the five concrete pillars with a heavy foot towards the floor.
      Have a great weekend too with lots of hugs,
      Mariette

  31. Dearest Mariette, I'm once again catching up on my blog visits and reading .. this past week - the drastic change in weather has resulted in an awful case of allergies for me (doing much better now) and we were also off to spend time with my darling mother who turned 75 yesterday.

    Pieter and you have done an absolute amazing job on your Rose Suite!!! Each detail reflects the care and love with which you completed it. Your guests no doubt will feel most welcomed and comfortable. Yes! North American is all about big everything ... which we Europeans know, bigger does not mean quality. The touches of European flare brings so much warmth to the Rose Suite!!! Many blessings to you both .. hugs, C. (HHL)
