The first floor bedchamber, the Blue Guest Room, is in the room behind the parlor. Since it is a primary guest room, it is trimmed with chair rail and a single-piece crown moulding. The trim is painted a bright blue; a minor color in the hierarchy of important 18th century colors as would be fitting for a room not seen by most guests. A pencil post bed with tester frame and a clothes press furnish the room with Venetian blinds on the windows. The bed is placed in front of a window as would have been done in the 18th century since windows were positioned to satisfy the exterior appearance.
