In an old house, perhaps in the woods or at least in the country, a cozy bedroom is important. A warm place to snuggle in at night and listen to the wind blow and feel safe and warm.
When the wind blows or the lightening flashes, pull the drapes closed and read a good book .. and wake to sunshine.
A large bed, in case there are wee ones who want to hop in bed with you in the mornings or just so that loved one next to you has plenty of room to spread out and not get blamed for hogging the bed ..
A fireplace in the bedroom is icing on the cake. French doors leading to the gardens is perfection.
