{Our Rose Suite Living Room}

On October 12, I did show you Our Rose Suite Bedroom and now I like to show you our Rose Suite Living Room. By the way; till November 16 you can win the burlap fabric - see to the right on my blog, just click it!
So please come in and make yourself at home... It is rainy outside so let's be cozy indoors. For those that missed the previous posts about Our Rose Suite, you find them listed below this post.
Welcome to our Rose Suite Living Room!
'Versailles Rouge' Rug, 5'6" x 8' from Horchow.com in 80% wool and 20% silk.
Chairs are in imitation suede, from Canada.
Same Spanish Volcano beige tile floor with pearl grout, as throughout the entire Rose Suite.
Coffee table is in solid oak, in a cherry stain.
This is the bay window area, under our kitchen.
Antique French oak beveled glass mirror. 
That is the bedroom door...
Antique beveled glass French oak mirror from European Estate Sellers, Utah.
French Country Style Maison de Florette pendulum clock.
Our hand painted vintage French Country Style 'Literature' chest for magazines.
In the corner you see a French tiger oak dresser with beveled mirror that came from Vancouver, Canada.
This French Country Style tiger oak two piece dresser was shipped via Grey Hound by Sugar Barrel Antiques from Vancouver, Canada via Seatle, Chicago to Atlanta and on to Dublin.  For only $ 150.00 shipping. Incredible service and they did transport it first from Vancouver to Seatle... Highly recommendable company with great pieces of furniture. 
A retired Dutch lady who also volunteers at the Lace Museum in Horst, my birth town, did crochet this fine table runner in a number 20 DMC thread. 
The vase is Cranberry glass, or Gold Ruby (Rubino Oro) glass as it is called in Europe and it is made from molten glass with gold.
My first cousin Gon Van den Munckhof, did crochet this dachshund in memory of my dachshund Mauzie, even though she was a black and tan miniature.
Frame, received from colleague Luis Astier, a Basque from San Sebastian in Spain.
To the right is my younger sister Diny and me to the left...
Another gift from Luis Astier, given to us while working as consultants in Mexico.
Luis and I were elected best dressed man and woman during one of the Campbell Seminars, that Pieter gave in 1993 in Texas.
Luis and his wife Isabel used to live in Mexico but went back to Spain.
Antique French oak table with two chairs we bought in Macon, Georgia at Second Hand Rose Antiques Etc.
Overview from this corner...
Rose painting was a birthday gift from our extended family...
A Delft blue village from miniature homes given by KLM to their business class passengers and on their annual birthday of Royal Dutch Airlines another one gets added.
They neatly nest on this antique French tiger oak shelf.
Detail of our two-piece French tiger oak dresser with beveled mirror.
The hand crocheted filet lace is done by me...
Sweet angel, given by our German son and his wife.
It clings to a candle that is in a Royal Selangor pewter candle holder with French glass bobêche.
Royal Selangor is established in 1885 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We bought our candleholders in Singapore and gave some as a gift to friends and a vase to sister Diny.
Of course ROSES everywhere! 
Silver stationery holder, letter opener/ruler and page marker in repoussé silver roses.
Cup & Saucer was a gift from a dear elderly lady friend and role model.
Sure, memories from old friends and new friends. 
Again a beautiful hand crocheted filet lace table runner by the same Dutch lady.
They were precious gifts from hearts friend Ellie who came to stay with her husband at our Rose Suite.
You recognize the Train Case, painted by Rebecca from the blog: A Gathering Place
Hope you liked the tour of our Rose Suite Living Room.
Next time I will show you the Rose Suite Kitchenette corner and some more details.

  4. Liebe Mariette,
    das ist eine wunderbare Gästewohnung geworden. Der Teppich ist extra schön mit den Rosen. Überhaupt liebe ich alle Details mit Rosen, wie die schöne Uhr. Da müssen sich eure Gäste ja wirklich besonders wohlfühlen. Ich sehe auch hier mit Freude, wie Rosenmuster wieder modern werden. Sogar Ikea hat jetzt mehrere Stoffe und Bettwäsche mit Rosen.
    Schöne Grüße, Johanna

  5. Wat gezellig !!...fijne dag liefs Ria...xxx..

  6. Liebe Mariette,

    die Rose bleibt die Königin der Blumen.

    Alles Liebe


  7. Lieve Mariette,

    Wat een heerlijke ruime kamer voor jullie gasten.
    En al die mooie meubels en andere voorwerpen met dierbare herinneringen.

    Heb je ook het geluk gehad om Paleis Soestdijk aan je verzameling KLM huisjes toe te voegen?

    Hier is het sinds gisteren weer rustig na weken van onderzoeken,spanning en afwachten.
    Het hartteam heeft een goede keuze gemaakt,na behandeling en nachtje in ziekenhuis blijven heb ik manlief ook weer thuis, hij zit nu met zijn krantje in de comfortabele oorfauteuil en kan er voorlopig weer even tegen.

    Fijne dag en lieve groeten!!

  8. Dearest Mariette, your Rose Suite living space is amazing. It looks tres comfy and you have done an excellent job of making both beautiful, practical and welcoming. Your guests are most lucky. I especially love the small details you have added throughout the space, touches of home, memories of friends. Wonderfully done.. blessings to you and Pieter , xo C. (HHL)

  9. It's a lovely cozy space for guests filled with so many personal treasures. That crocheted dachsund is absolutely adorable and all the filet crochet is just beautiful. Best wishes, Tammy

  10. Hola Mariette, todo es muy bonito. Tienes muy buen gusto, saludos desde España.

  11. It is a lovely living room for your guests full of wonderful things !
    I suppose that they will feel very cosy .
    Have a nice day

  12. Liebe Mariette,
    wunderschöne Möbel habt ihr - die Rosendekoration im ganzen Raum macht es so stilvoll und gemütlich -
    der Spiegel ist ein Unikat - die Kommode und der Beistelltisch sind ganz besonders -
    das Delfter Dorf ist ein richtiger Hingucker -
    zum Wohlfühlen ist es bei dir -

    lg. Ruth

  13. Prachtige ruimte geworden Mariette! En mooi ook dat kistje met rozen voor de tijdschriften op te bergen,

    Groeten Janny

  14. Een gezellige comfortabele logeergelegenheid. Het teckeltje is enig en dat jackje staat zo leuk. Lieve groet,

  15. Dear Mariette, what a great tour through your Rose Suite Living room, a really enjoyed it! Beautiful room full of lovely details and precious memories:) You arranged everything with measure and excellent taste! Can wait the kitchen!
    Hugs, Jagoda

  16. Dearest Mariette,
    It is a lovely Rose with you and have sweet sister. what is wouldn't give to have you away another Diny in spain. Coffee table in your kitchen.The De Florette Pendulum clock at franch. I really enjoy looking your beautiful things.
    I has write in my books all of your Basie,
    Hugs and love to you always!

  17. Liebe Mariette,

    ich frag mich gerade, wie viele Umzugs-Kisten es bei Euch wohl gewesen sein müssen. Wenn es bei uns schon ca. 150 waren?? Sehr hübsch schaut es übrigens bei Euch aus! Die Rose liebe ich ja auch sehr, habe schon einige im neuen Garten gepflanzt!

    Ja, bei uns zieht es sich dieses Mal ziemlich hin, was auch mit daran liegt, daß ich nach einer sehr schweren Operation vor 3 Jahren nichts Schweres mehr heben oder tragen darf. 5 kg ist das Maximum. Umzugskisten sind aber wesentlich schwerer! So muß ich jedes Mal jemanden finden und bitten, der mir die Kisten zum Auspacken bereitstellt. Leider bin ich oft allein, da mein Mann in den letzten Jahren wesentlich mehr arbeitet als früher und nur 8 Stunden Freizeit (inclusive Schlaf) überhaupt hat. Oft auch am Wochenende. Da bleibt dann kaum Zeit für anderes. Schwierig wird es nur, wenn man(n) alles trotzdem selber machen will.
    Würde ich allein entscheiden können, würde ich für vieles Handwerker und Hilfskräfte nehmen. Aber so muß ich mich gedulden und warten ... deshalb dauert es dieses Mal alles viel länger.

    Trotzdem haben wir inzwischen schon Fortschritte gemacht. Nur müssen noch bestimmte Schränke angeschafft (oder selbst gebaut = hoffentlich nicht!!! Denn das würde "Jahre" dauern!!!) ;-) werden. Denn in diesem Haus ist alles ganz anders und es fehlt deutlich Stauraum. Leider bin ich innenarchitektonisch nicht sooo sehr begabt. So daß mir oft die Vorstellung fehlt, wie man das mit den Schränken rationell lösen könnte. Vielleicht poste ich in den nächsten Tagen mal die Problem-Ecken. Besonders die Küche bietet zu wenig Stauraum und im Keller mag ich kein Küchengerät aufbewahren! Im angrenzenden Wohnraum ist jedoch genügend Platz. Nur die Ideen, an denen mangelt es ... Schließlich soll alles auch gut ausschauen.

    Mit dem Verpacken hatten wir auch keine Probleme. Nichts ist zu Bruch gegangen.

    Da hast Du mit Deinem Pieter einen ähnlich veranlagten Lebenspartner - das ist bei sehr vielen Männern deutlich anders! Meist sind die Männer der bequemere Part und haben einen langen Atem. Weil Männer so viel Schnickschnack einfach nicht brauchen und auch nicht einsehen, daß man (Frau!) soviel Zeug besitzen muß. So denkt auch mein Mann, die Hälfte der Kartons wäre immer noch zu viel ;-) Ein, zwei Vasen reichen doch, wozu 10?! Das ist männliche Logik! Selbst meine Söhne denken schon so!
    Sicher gibts bei Mann wie bei Frau immer auch mal Ausnahmen, aber im großen und ganzen hört man das überall, daß Männer zur Kargheit neigen.

    Insgesamt ziehe ich auch nicht mehr gern um. Aber ich hab' schon ein Auge drauf, daß die Herren weiterschaffen, jedenfalls das, was ich selbst nicht tun kann, damit das ganze Formen annimmt.

    Bin schon froh, wieder ins Internet zu können, wenn auch vorerst noch per Notebook und auch nur sporadisch, da einfach kaum Zeit dafür bleibt.

    Viele liebe Grüße und hoffentlich bis bald wieder

  18. Dearest Mariette, Thank you for such a lovely tour. I just love all the unique treasures and of course the rose motifs.
    The crochet pieces are especially beautiful and certainly treasures.
    Love to you, Ginger

  19. Dearest Mariette,

I admire your sense for your interior☆☆☆ With all the other things, I truly love your Florette pendulum clock. Thank you very much for the feast for my eyes, my Dear friend.

  22. Hi Mariette,

    I love your fabulous Rose Suite Living Room. You have so many wonderful treasures.


  23. I see the candlesticks. Sam picked out a carved plate to display. And for myself I bought a necklace with the Chinese symbol for water (since I'm a Pisces). :)

  24. the wood tones are so beautiful. I love how it all fits together to create such a beautiful space.

  25. It is fun to see where others live. You have some beautiful treasures. I too have a collection of the KLM houses....many trips across the Atlantic...when I lived in The Netherlands. Janey
