Inn BoonsBoro

I've mentioned her before on this blog, but romance novelist Nora Roberts but writing seems to be only one of Roberts' specialities as she has just opened a bed-and-breakfast in Boonsboro, MD. She has incorporated her love of literature by following a literary-theme in the 8 rooms of the hotel. But, not just any literary couples "The whole idea was the rooms' themes had to be linked to literary couples who ended up with happy endings," says Roberts, who says she was challenged to find enough couples to fill the bill. "Romeo and Juliet? Dead. Tristan and Isolde? Dead. Not happy. Dead, dead, dead. Rhett Butler and Scarlett? He didn't give a damn. You try finding seven of them."

Check out all the rooms here.

They all look cozy, but I had a few favorites. How fun would it be to decorate a house based off your favorite characters. Who would you choose?

Titania and Oberon from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream (described as "waltzing into a magic forest")
