HOLLYWOOD BEDROOMS

Hey you guys, I would like to finish the Apartment Therapy house and garden  tour by showing you the bedrooms. There are two, one upstairs, one downstairs. Both kinda small although the upstairs bedroom has windows on all four sides which makes for a pretty good mood. The downstairs bedroom looks north out onto a walled garden. Back upstairs, the black cat sitting on the bed is Elizabeth Taylor, she was injured by a neighborhood cat by the name of Debbie Reynolds, I think Debbie won, this time, which explains the large blue collar. In this same bedroom if you stand on your toes, look over the large pine tree down the street, put on your eye glasses and squint, you can see the Hollywood sign. Unfortunately seeing the sign under these conditions I don't think it will increase my property value. Also, whats  nice about the upstairs bedroom is  through a french door you can enter onto a deck so you can sleep inside or out, or watch a movie on the eight foot movie screen, have a cocktail and smell the smog which ever you prefer. Thanks for letting me show you the house and thanks for all the wonderful past comments. And last, but not least, thank you Gregory Han for taking such great photos and showing my house and garden on Apartment Therapy.

If you stand on tippy toes & lean into the the corner, you can see Mt St Helens from my husband's studio.

So beautiful. Clever use of plants to make a lovely view out the one window.

Love the black rag doll with the Hollywood regency things. Mom used to mix like that and she made many rag dolls, of all colors.

Looks so peaceful on the top area as well.

That downstairs bedroom makes me want to lie there with a good book and read! Love it! The upstairs bedroom is serene and relaxing for resting. Just beautiful, all of it...

I love when you post rooms in your home! Your home has such a fun vibe and I love how you decorate with what you love and it all works so well together. It seems like a fun home to live in. The downstairs bedroom overlooking the garden would be mine! The garden is charming as can be and I LOVE the bed upstairs - it's gorgeous as are the two blue lamps. You sure do have some style!
