And so to bed!
This is the main bedroom in my house. I didn't really have a complete plan of what I wanted to do with this room when I started, I just liked the wallpaper when I saw it. It has a slightly chinoiserie meets chintz feeling to it! I am pleased with how this room is progressing. Most of the furniture is made from wooden kits by McQueenie miniatures (four poster, half-tester bed, dressing table and dressing table mirror, stool and side table) the chest of drawers is by Dovetail miniatures. The Chippendale style birdcage mirror above the fireplace is by Lucy Askew, and I think works really well in this room. The exotic birds on the mirror led me to purchase the birds of paradise figurines (by Veronique Cornish) on the mantle shelf, and I think that the room is now coming together. You may notice the lack of bed covers/curtains etc, I have purchased some nice silk dupion from John Lewis, in a buttermilk shade, but just haven't been brave enough to get the needle and thread out again yet! I keep hoping some little elves might pop in one night and do them for me!! lol!
