This bedroom was in Carolyne Roehm's former pied-a-terre in Paris. I absolutely adore it. It has been floating around in my head since I first saw it in her book A Passion for Flowers a dozen years ago. A totally feminine eighteenth century haven filled with striped pink silk taffeta, a wonderful eighteenth century bed found at the Marche aux Puces, eighteenth century fabric, a pair of Chinoiserie ginger jars, antique silver, and glorious flowers-sweet peas, ranunculas, tulips, and roses-all in shades of pink. Girly and feminine-oh yes. And please, no inevitable comments about how your husband or boyfriend doesn't like pink and canopy beds. To paraphrase the words of Charlotte Moss, the bedroom is the woman's and she invites the man in. By the way, A Passion for Flowers is my favorite book on flower arranging.
