Storybook Suite

The Storybook Suite, a People’s Choice award winner during the 2013 ASID Showcase home tour, invites a touch of playfulness, comfort and luxury. The focal point is the fireplace, which is surrounded by original hand-painted tiles depicting traditional nursery rhymes. Only one tile is new—a custom piece painted by a local artist illustrating the Blessing children in their own story. The balcony, or as it was called in Victorian days, “sleeping porch,” offers an airy rooftop perspective and boasts prime views. Youthfulness embraces the room, a dance of sweetness and elegance, but also balanced with dramatic notes. The striking lavender toile de jouy wall covering, which depicts scenes from Aesop’s fables continues the lively impression. The bathroom continues the interplay between sweet and sophisticated; the shower is a touch of modern class, bathed in marbled tile, with chrome features. The Storybook Suite is a cozy setting for the guest who desires to craft their own story, finding childlike wonder and inspiring new ideas around every corner.
