Thanks so much to Amy and Christy from 11 Magnolia Lane and Jenny from Evolution of Style for including me on this Holiday Home Tour! I hope you’ve been following along with all the wonderful bloggers this week…if you’ve missed any they are all linked at the bottom of this page. If you’re coming from Tamara at Citrine Living…just wow, right? And be sure to visit Chris at Just a Girl Blog next…another wow and I’m so glad she is back in the blogosphere!
Today I’m featuring one of our two guest bedrooms at Idlehour. I call this one the Alpine Room as it is inspired by Bavarian style decor. We lived in Germany for about 10 years, it is a country very dear to my heart! The sunny colors here always remind me of the wonderful times we had there.
This is considered a loft bedroom, the old barn doors on the outside open to a beautiful view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
This sleigh bed came from Europe and is perfect for this Bavarian inspired “zimmer”!
We actually have a Christmas tree farm, I mentioned in my last post, right down the “hill” from our neighborhood! In that direction!
I’m not sure if there is a military spouse out there that was stationed in Germany in the 80s and remembers these houses, Ursula Leyk Lichthaus, they were all the rage then! I have 4 that I treasure, I wish now I had purchased more. I didn’t see them when we went back 20 years later.
Do you change out pictures? Artwork? Bedding or curtains for the holidays? I do where I can!
I made a garland of some of my favorite silver ornaments from Germany, they are so delicate and beautiful!
Another Germany purchase…bags made from original Swiss Army blankets.
Frohe Weihnachten!
