'Completing The Miniaturist's Room' Part 4 on Life & Style

Hello everyone,

How are you all? Hope you are having a great week. Like usual I'm busy with my miniature work but I have to admit I am enjoying every bit of it!

My Miniature World on facebook has reached over 18,000 likes and followers. I want to thank you for all the encouragement and support. As a thank you I will be  preparing a give-away for you.... but first I will be sharing my progress on The Miniaturist Project. You will find the details of the give-away at the end of this post!

For the last few weeks I continued working on 'The Miniaturist' Project and I was delighted to work on the actual miniaturist's room. The progress of this room has also been shared on the 'Life & Style' TV Show on the Maltese channel NET TV.


The Miniaturist's Room
I have added so many items in this room and there is so much to see, but before I begin I wanted to introduce you to the miniaturist, Lady Adelaide. 

The Miniaturist Lady Adelaide
 Lady Adelaide is another lovely doll made by my dear friend and favorite doll maker Beverley Senatore. She fitted in the scene perfectly. Lady Adelaide tends to keep to herself and she surrounds herself with her dolls and miniatures.  Just like any miniaturist, her room is quite busy.

I have added so many accessories for this room which mostly I made myself. I had gotten these two kits from Artofmini while I was at the DHNS in Arnhem, knowing too well that they would come handy for this particular project.


One by one I built them and was very pleased with the outcome.




I have added wooden legs to the open shelved dolls house so it can go higher and won't obstruct the rest of the furniture. I will be adding tiny furniture pieces to each of the rooms.

I also got myself this theater kit from Jane Harrop which looks quite cute in the room.


Then I added these white metal dolls houses that have been hand painted by my father. Each dolls house is detailed with tiny furniture. Eventually More of these house will be added to the room. 


My favorite part was adding details to the miniaturist's table. All accessories were made by me such as the tiny paint brushes, paint pots and paint tubs. The tiny wall paper and flooring have been down sized and printed to fit the scene.


Lady Adelaide has her favorite doll Amelia to keep her company.  

Amelia the Doll
 Amelia the tiny doll was another miniature that I got for this project from the DHNS in Arnhem. She is very tiny and sits quite nicely in a 1:48 scale chair. Amelia was made by the Spanish Artist Victoria Heredia Guerbo. 

Finally I decorated this crate for the miniaturist. I am sure that most miniaturists have boxes filled with bits and pieces that might come useful to their work.



I have added a few wall frames which contain pictures of children playing with their miniatures and dolls. These have been all printed on canvas to look like paintings.


My favorite frame of all is the 'House Cleaning' picture. A few of you may already know that I have the same picture in my own dolls house gallery. It is very precious to me. For those who are interested to know about its origins you can visit the link to my blog post House Cleaning - The Prize

House Cleaning
As Lady Adelaide lives right on top of the Dickens Book Shop she found an interesting book in the window that drew her attention.


The Folding Dolls House Book. It is a miniature book  that I have been working on and has turned out to be quite a success. This book folds open into a four room dolls house setting were you can also add 1:144 scale dolls house furniture pieces.





The room was all set up during the TV Show 'Life & Style' were Charles Saliba and I got to share it with the audience.

Here are the three video clips were you get to see the progress of the room during the show.







A few photos of the finished miniaturist's room. Most probably I will still be adding more to it.
