winter position



In the winter months, I slide the bed up next to the back of the masonry heater which pops through the wall into my bedroom. It's my dutch wife. It's a bit minimalist, but the monochromatic color scheme and lack of window treatments forces the view to be the main (and only) focus. And at night, there is not even that distraction from falling fast asleep. For those who don't get up with the sun, I may one day put up those deep green pull down school blinds. I'm just not quite ready to add that splash of color yet.

Beautiful dresser. Can you provide some info on it?

The dresser is a cast off from a friend. I just looked in one of the drawers and it says "American of Martinsville". Hope that helps.

I have to say, having the masonry furnace back up to your bedroom is an incredibly good idea. Brian finished our masonry furnace in December and in our house the back of the furnace is the tiled wall of the shower, which makes morning showers very nice, but having it next to your bed must be terrific.
