Emily Dickinson’s sunlit bedroom has two entrances and two sets of windows facing south and west. The room has been restored to its late 1870s appearance with cream colored trim, white lace and green damask curtains hanging from brass rods, and a lively wallpaper with pink vining roses against a cream colored ground. The poet’s original sleigh bed bears her paisley shawl in shades of orange and red. In the corner flanked by windows stands a small writing table with an oil lamp. A chest of drawers holds a china teacup, a framed photo of the poet’s nephew Gib, and a basket ideal for lowering gingerbread from on high to the neighbor children.
