Had a repeat guest see their room first time since we redid it (again) and what they said was this, 'wow, did you hire a decorator???'

Yes! I have finally found the 'look'!

So much confidence from that one remark!

BTDT. Guests did a double-take, but liked the change.

It is amazing, it is what It think of when I think of that area. Well done! Are you going to pull an Anthony now and emulate that same look for all the rooms?

I suppose the answer will be...when the money rolls in.  I really like it!

No. Won't be doing the same look in every room. Some rooms just do not want to be 'cottage-y'. They are refusing to play along. One (no photos yet) has decided it wants to be 'elegant'. It was supposed to be another cottage-y look but not happening. It looks elegant. Must be the colors, all chocolate brown and pinks.

The last room is also calling for a more elegant look.

I think there might be an appeal to a different person for the different type of room. Time will tell. We'll see what books this summer. I will say the old room is booking faster than that new one and I'm wondering why. Could be a lot of things.

Altho, looking at a website from a place that is definitely 'beach-y' I totally LOVED the white curtains billowing in the breeze. I wanted to pack up and go right now. Wish I could make that look work here but I just bought all new light blocking drapes! 4 AM sunshine was not making for happy guests.

Yes Silverspoon, the secret info is only a guess I made years ago. I have no confirmation from any source.

Is that an apology? In case you're right? Even if you're wrong?

I'm being light hearted but I'm seriously sensitive to being outed.

Hey! No fair! You can't out someone. Only the outee is allowed to do that.

Them's the rules.

It's always a nice feeling after all that hard work to have someone say something like that. Job well done!

Your rooms look so much more modern than before. Very nice! No more of the "old fashioned" remarks!

Here's hoping! I actually bought the new bedding with your comments in mind. Thank you.

Will change up a few more comforters and wall decor as I find things I like. Had a friend over and her take on one of the new rooms (not photographed yet) was a similar comment, as in who came up with this, not YOU!

They look so much smarter. 

I've been installing wall sconces in one of the rooms. Looks really nice, but with my weird walls it's been a royal PITA to install. But it does clear up the night table space. 

They have new ones, but the finish is mirror and that's just going to be one more thing to polish every day and ensure that it's fingerprint free. The brushed steel looks so much smarter and you just wipe... you don't have to turn your head all around to ensure no smudges in the mirror finish.
