The "Inn on Poplar Hill," where I stay to rest and relax, decorates their rooms each in a different color scheme, Victorian style. I am always assigned the "Rose Room," with a theme of crimson roses. The upholstery, curtains, rugs, and bedspreads all have pictorial rose prints. This is one of the few "girly" experiences I will tolerate. This chair, "granny" more than "girly," has eighteenth century-styled red picture prints on it, and dark red fuzzy trim. I don't sit on this chair, I pile it with my clothes and books. Other rooms, more extravagant than mine, are the "Blue Willow" room and the "Magnolia Room."
