Closing the Curtains to Pembroke Grange

Hello Everyone,

Here I am again with the Grand Finale of Pembroke Grange. I hope you are having a great week and that you are keeping safe. 

During the weekend I got to complete Pembroke Grange which was inspired by Jane Austen's Novel 'Pride & Prejudice'. It took me eleven months to complete and I still can't believe that it's ready.

The final touches on the house were the curtains. Nine set of curtains had to be made with the pelmets and all. It took me quite some time to finish but they were definitely worth it. 



I also added the last flower pot that I made for the conservatory. The Bearded Irises which are made out of paper.


Finally the house was complete both from the outside and the inside.


The conservatory on the left gave the house so much more character. 



The Dining room next to the conservatory now has a new character. Hill the maid who is preparing dinner for her masters. Hill is another doll made by my friend and doll maker Beverley Senatore.

In the Drawing room you will find Jane Austen and Miss Elizabeth Bennett having tea and reading poems.

On the left hand side on the first floor you will find the main bedroom in shades of blue.

On the right hand side of the building you will find Mr. Darcy in the Study.


Mr. Darcy has a true likeness to Colin Firth. Very proud to have him.

My favorite part is the turning on of the lights especially when it's dark.



Do you have a habit of peeping through the windows when it's done? I do and I love it! It reminds me so much of little Becky. 






I am very happy how the whole project turned out and very proud of it too. Now it stands proudly part of my dolls house collection at My Miniature World. 

Few of you would be asking what comes next.  During the weekend I also got to start studying the new project which is Le Château. It's another discontinued kit by the Dolls House Emporium and I'm hoping to turn it into a French Style House. 


So this is all for today. I hope you enjoyed following my progress on Pembroke Grange and like the end results. Now make sure to keep tuned for the beginning of Le Château.

Take Care and See You Soon,

Be Safe,
