The Main Bed Room in Tudor Manor

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all had a great weekend! It has been a few days since I last posted. Apart from being busy with my priorities in life as Raquel's 1st Communion is approaching fast, I was under the weather. Got myself a head cold thanks to the change in climate. Mother Nature can't seem to make up her mind if she wants Summer, Spring or even Autumn. This year she has totally forgot about Winter here in Malta. This works just fine for me. I can't complain about that at all as I hate winter.

My Tudor Manor is almost in it's final touches. I am just adding a few more accessories here and there to add more detail. So I must say that I think by the 2nd week of May it will be done.

Like a few of you know last August I had started just a little work on the Tudor Manor and the first room that I started working on was the Main Bed Room.

The Main Bed Room
The design of the bed room was made especially for me by Elf miniatures. Elizabeth and I had worked it all together and you can read all about it on an older post 1930's Bedroom for Tudor Manor. Even if the furniture was done still I needed to add more accessories and detail to make it looked more lived in.

I have added an extra piece of furniture to the room which is the arm chair. The arm Chair is another kit from Jane Harrop and I have stained it to match the room.

The arm chair has a 1930's style and it had fitted in perfectly.

I have also tried my hand at making a 1930's style lady's hat using a piece of felt. I think for the first I did a pretty good job. I am quite pleased with it. I have placed it on the wardrobe.

On the chest of drawers apart from a hand painted Art Deco figurine and a 1930's style Frame I have also added a men's dressing table set. They were quite needy at the time.

Some how the room being quite spacious still had something missing. There was still lots of room to add more especially in the center area.

I thought it was a good idea to add an ironing board. In the period an ironing board was not only used in the wash room or in the utility room. Some would use it in the kitchen, or in the sitting room. Others would use it in a bedroom. It all depended on the space I guess or where the lady of the house would find it comfortable to use.  I decided to do mine in the bed room as I had just the right amount of space for it.

I have hand painted a 1930's style electrical iron to add to the scene.  Have added a basket with laundry and also managed to make a lady's shirt for it.

Mrs. Noble is quite pleased with the arrangement of the setting.

 I have added a few wall frames around and a few books in the bed side tables. I still need to add the wall lights and the curtains but the room is pretty much done.

Here are a few more photos.

Hope you like what I have done so far. I think this must be one of my favorite rooms in the house. 

So this is all for today. Keep tuned for the next update on this project. Hopefully I will get to work a bit on the finishing touches of the kitchen.

Take Care and see you soon.
