Molly’s Room

 

The Lions’ Loft Suite | Ivy’s Room | Florence’s Room | Molly’s Room

This lovely room is named for Molly Bell who lived in the house with her husband, William W. Bell, in 1937. Admittedly, there were other women who lived in the house and do not have a room named in their honor, but we just think Molly sounds like someone young and carefree, someone who would have brought a sense of joy & playfulness to the home! We don’t know if Molly had a job outside of her family, but we do know that she lived here at least until 1941 and that her husband was a carpenter. In later archive entries we see mention of Jos R. Bell and M. Margaret Bell, who may have been her children.

Molly’s Room has a lovely mullioned window overlooking the back garden. It features a queen size bed, an electric fireplace, vintage diamond shaped leaded glass window providing light into the ensuite bathroom, and an antique Chinese wardrobe. The colours are contemporary taupe and black, tastefully combined to create a feeling of tranquillity. Molly’s ensuite is the smallest of our bathrooms but is tastefully appointed with most of the features listed above, a vintage style pedestal sink, custom shower with rain head, and gorgeous beaded tiles imported from Italy.
