I have been working on the drawing room (and even considering the the floor below it!) but have little to show right now. So I thought I would share some old pictures I found of rooms, houses and projects I have made over the years. I can't believe how long ago some were!
This yellow drawing room was the very first room I made. It must have been 10 or 12 years ago now and it was quite large.
This Adam style room was in the same house as the yellow room - I didn't get as far as adding fire grates before the pictures were taken!
Here's some pictures of a pretty French room I did. The gilding was agony but worth the effort.
This picture is a before and after! In the first picture you can see the original wall panels - very pretty and I loved these when they first came on the market.
I was obsessed with Windsor Castle at the time and adored the red and green drawing rooms, so, seeing I had two almost perfect rooms next to each other I bought some Susan Bembridge Palm wallpaper in red and green and set to work with a scalpel!
This last room was cobbled together from lots of bits that were left over from other projects. I was trying to make a country house library with a window overlooking gardens. I think it turned out reasonably well - You have to love Sue Cook's mouldings!
It's funny now looking back at these old pictures, I like their composition but my tastes have calmed down a lot now and prefer a slightly neutral pallet. I'll do another post with more old pictures next week - please forgive my wanderings down memory lane.
Have a great weekend
