Thanks for your lovely comments on my last post like this. Here are some more pictures dug out of the archive!
This is a slightly different view of the Georgian townhouse I built from scratch a couple of years ago. It was my first attempt at going for a more aged, weather-beaten exterior and interior.
And this is the morning room - another first for me, when I discovered the joy of filling a room with accessories. Note the umber stained ceiling - Once I started washing everything in burnt umber I couldn't stop!
Yet another library. As you saw in my last post this was the first wallpaper I ever bought for my first room, and I've gone back to it ever since. I guess some things are too good to use the once.
This was my first attempt at a grand staircase - well, my first staircase of any form (there are a surprising amount of "firsts" in this post!). For a large space I was keen to keep it interesting. It all looks so new and clean though - this was in the days before I discovered the joys of a burnt umber wash!
This little sitting room was carved out of a reasonably sized house that didn't have a "cosy" place for people to sit. You can't beat a mini room with the lights on.
Another unfinished photo - the chandelier wasn't yet put in! I liked this dining room. I painted it using left over paint from our RL living room.
The next is a picture I sent to Sue Cook when I asked her to make a Kentian style fireplace.
I think you'll agree she did an amazing job!! It's currently for sale in her shop.
This was a small French style entrance hall I did a couple of years ago. I had bought some amazing moulded plastic sheeting in the form of brickwork and it looked great all painted up. Typically, I've never found it since!
And finally, here's my toy theatre I built. The picture doesn't do it's size any justice - it was huge! Funnily enough I have been working on another theatre in my 12 month sabbatical which I hadn't planned to show you but will maybe post about later.
It's funny, in my last post I had mentioned that I thought my [questionable] taste had changed over the years, but Betsy said she hadn't noticed much of a change. And I think she is right! Perhaps it's more my own perception of how things "should" look? "The eye of the beholder!" and all that.
Well, I'll wrap it up there before you all fall asleep. I used to have posts about some of these projects but a couple of years ago I, along with several others, were "hit" by a series of unfortunate events and the posts were deleted and I've not found them since. Anyone know of a way to find and re-activate them?
Have a great week, I'll post more on my current drawing room shortly.
