Today I'm featuring the Museum Hill Bed and Breakfast in St. Joseph, MO~ We stayed here for our anniversary a few years ago. I love Italianate homes. Huge brackets, stately arched pediments, brick...sigh..
These are photos we took, but they are scans. You can visit their site tho, and veiw a couple of great slideshows! We stayed in the Empire Rose Room.
Original ornate plaster moldings and medalions grace the home~See those lucious curves!? Curved plaster walls and crown molding, I was in house heaven.
The home had been through a bad fire. The owners did an outstanding job restoring this old gal. See the remains of flames on the floor? I think it looks beautiful.
Here is our Empire Rose Room! More curved plaster walls...drooool. We got to sleep in this gorgeous sleigh bed with fluffy cream linens.
There was lovely Empire furniture throughout.
One of the prettiest chamber pots I had ever seen. For display only, LOL!
Nice transom window above our bedroom door.
Ok, so the room and stay was great. Awesome breakfast, friendly hosts. But what I REALLY wanted to roll up and stick in the car was that room sized vintage carpet!!! Didja see it? I couldn't keep my eyes off it... I'm surprised I didn't sleep on the floor that night, ha!
