An Art Nouveau design carpet in the Edwardian dolls house
I wanted this room to be fresh and light so chose the pale blue and white colour scheme. I made the chaise longue and screen out of cardboard covered with fabric. The carpet I stitched from a pattern in a doll's house magazine. It is an art nouveau design, popular in Edwardian times. I collect blue and white china so made a display in this room of miniature pieces.
In real life, I live in Iris Cottage. A friend gave me a miniature copy of van Gogh's 'Iris' painting for this room. The other Iris painting is a Japanese one I cut from a magazine and framed. I had found a little vase with irises on it and made the iris flowers to go in out of tissue paper.
The writing desk and chair are white wire ones which I painted brown so they would look like wicker. I made the wicker table with waxed linen thread stained brown with shoe polish. The blue beaded bell pull was a gift from a miniaturist friend.
This room is one of my favourite rooms in the Edwardian dolls house.
