Are you one of the read-before-bed aficionados?
I definitely am but dislike having to get up and turn off the light when it's time to turn in.
One of my aunts used to have brass wall lamps behind her bed that swung out and could be adjusted to one's reading position.
I loved those lamps and thought of them even after she sold her house and moved into an apartment.
Recently, while staying in the Robert Todd Lincoln room at the West Mountain Inn in Arlington, Vermont, it was great to have brass lights on the wall behind the bed.
First of all, I love anything brass. Secondly, easy-to-switch-off reading lights, without having to get out of bed, are the epitome of comfort!
Loved the mini canopy of the bed, the carved headboard and pretty floral wallpaper, too.
There was even a photograph of the Lincoln family on one of the walls.
It's always nice when the room one is staying in away-from-home turns out to be a good choice.
Want to take a quick peek into a couple of the inn's other room?
Here's the Grandma Moses suite:
Daniel Webster suite:
Just want to note that no compensation of any kind was given for this post on the inn nor do I have any connection except for being a happy former guest!
WOULD YOU ENJOY STAYING IN A ROOM WITH A VICTORIAN DECOR?
