Ground Floor - The Sitting Room
Hello everyone, thank you for your lovely and kind comments on my Dining Room and Chandelier. I was very flattered and humbled, thank you again. I'd now like to welcome my nine new followers since my last post. Welcome along everybody and thank you to all for taking the time to read my blog, it's truly appreciated :) I can't believe I have 16 followers to my wee blog...thank you... If I am not following you, please let me know. I am new to blogger and am finding it difficult at times to track down the blogs other people have. :(
On with the show!! The Sitting Room is situated to the right of the Entrance Hall, and where the Lady of the house and her female friends like to retire to after dinner in the evening. I wanted an oriental feel to this room. I had originally bought the red Sue Cook fireplace and mirror for a bedroom, but I changed my mind and decided I'd rather have the oriental feel to the Sitting Room....yes, I am a fickle woman, and yes, I told you before. lol
In my previous blogs I had said that I had to prepare the three ceilings on each floor together before inserting the full piece into the house.
I painted the ceiling here a soft yellow, Jasper Cane by Craig & Rose 1829, and added a ceiling rose and four little corner plaster shapes - I'm sure there's a proper technical term for them, but it eludes me at the moment (and they may not even be for a ceiling at all, but I like them). I just painted these plain white as the rest of the room was going to be very 'busy' and was going to make up for that! Again, I had to make a new centre for the hole for the light fitting.
I also made the bell pull from gluing a piece of Les Chinoiseries silk in 'Kang' to a piece of light card and painted the back of the card the red from the dining room (also on the lights). I put a green Swarovski cube crystal on the end to tie in with the one on the light fitting.
