La Maison De Ville

Hello everyone,

How are you all? Hope you are well and had a great weekend. My Summer is here and it is getting warmer every day. I am looking forward to it like every year, even if this year I would be spending it indoors.

Most of us dolls house miniaturist are keeping indoors working on our projects, Lady Adelaide has been keeping busy working on her own. 

It has been a year since she moved to Regent Street and has become quite known for her artistry in miniatures. A French noble gentleman  has asked Lady Adelaide to builtd a beautiful dolls house for his wife. 

She took quite sometime to finish it and during this weekend, finally, 'La Maison De Ville' has been completed with wall paper and flooring. 

Lady Adelaide hasn't decorated it with furniture and accessories, so she can let the French Madam enjoy adding her own pieces. We are so sure that once 'La Maison De Ville' will be delivered to 'Le Château' in France, the new owners will love it!

I hope you like the new miniature 1:144 scale dolls house that I got as a kit last March at the DHNS in Arnhem. I am very happy how it turned out. Make sure to keep tuned for more. 

Take Care and Be Safe.

See You Soon.

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.

The Hallways in the middle of the building that also lead to other hidden rooms.

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. 

Mr. Darcy

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,

The Hallways in Pembroke Grange

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all well and keeping safe. Before closing the curtains to Pembroke Grange I wanted to share with you the hallways. I have to say that even though I love all the rooms, the hallways are my favorite. It was not easy at first but definitively worth the challenges. 

The hallways were the last area to be decorated.  At the entrance I have made my own handmade paper flower arrangement which I am really happy with. 

I also printed another carpet for the entrance.

I think the entrance looks very welcoming.

The next step was to decorate the walls. I got busy printing my own 3D frames and adding Regency periodic paintings. 

I also got to print a painting on Canvas of Colin Firth when he acted the role of Mr. Darcy in the BBC series 'Pride & Prejudice'.

It adds so much to the whole house.

So this is all for today. This weekend Pembroke Grange will be complete. Will be sharing with you the last details very soon so make sure to keep tuned.

Take Care and See You Soon.
