Ideal and reality

Even though I know he had a tough life, I have always been attracted to this picture. Did he sleep well in this little bed? Did he do his own laundry? Did he ever have company? :-)  Was it as comfortable and pretty as this picture?

I wouldn't say this is my interpretation of Van Gough's room but this is what I need right now. Quiet. Peace. Simplicity.  There is a little more furniture to come. It just isn't put together yet. Outside the window there are flowers and trees and birds. The hummingbirds are regulars. Early this morning the crows were having quite a domestic. At night the trees outside make lovely shadows on the wall.
