A Bathroom Trimmed in Sentiment

It was the bathroom that seduced a couple into buying a graceful old house outside of St. Louis. It was a big room on the second floor, and when husband and wife saw the light streaming in from the large window, they decided immediately that they wanted to live in this home. The owners wished to retain as well as enhance the lightness and cheerfulness of the room, so their color scheme included sunny peach for the walls and lots of white for the furnishings.

Looking for treasures everywhere, the wife discovered an heirloom dress in an antiques store and made it an integral part of her own family's heritage, christening her two sons in it. The dress, an image that never fails to evoke fond memories, now hangs in the bathroom next to the cream-colored linens inherited from the wife's mother.
