Judge’s Chambers – Upscale B&B Room
Judge’ Chambers – Sayles Landmark – Abilene’s Upscale B&B
What we like about this room: This is a “manly” room with wonderful colors and a richness of wood, leather and texture. The bed is just stunning!
This “Teddy Rooseveltian” style room is dominated by a King size, leather sleigh bed. The rich Charcoal and Chocolate color scheme is enhanced by the texture of the antique pine ceilings and the enormous brass and copper chandelier, salvaged from a 100 year old bank building in Eastland, Texas. The room is accessorized with industrial style oddities, a vintage baseball glove collection and a 1939 desk from the Anson, Texas Post Office. Seating is accomplished by a vintage, leather wingback and an antique rattan tub chair. The room has a mini fridge, high speed, wireless internet, a 42 inch, flat screen television and DVD player and conveniently located electrical connections on each side of the bed that include a pair of standard outlets and a pair of USB ports for all those devices that we all have these days.
The en suite bathroom walls are “papered” with leather, law book covers of the Vernon Codes, a Texas Law Reference Collection, a portion of which was written by Henry Sayles and his father John Sayles, the first Dean of the Baylor Law School. The large, Carrera Marble topped, double vanity and huge mirror were originally a French buffet. A oversized, abstract portrait of Albert Einstein and an art deco, milk glass chandelier continue the quirkiness of this bathroom, and top quality bath amenities provide luxury.
