Here is the first part: the back wall with the niche and the two doors, the left one to the landing, the right one to a small"cabinet de toilette", no shower or bath in the early XX th on the top floors, the floor for the maids'room. It's just the beginning of the construction.
I'd like to get the same atmosphere when the room is finished but I am not trying to copy every detail, just to get some ideas.
Beautiful picture, isn't it? Again, it's Honore de Balzac's bedroom in the Chateau de Sache, Indre et Loire. Don't miss it if you visit la Touraine !
It's a simple bed for a simple girl to contrast with the rooms full of feathers and flowers to make hats.
The wall paper is nice but I don't know where I can find something similar. Any ideas?
I have these four samples. Which one do you like?
Have a great and busy weekend!
Congratulations to Brae for winning the best blog competition and thanks to Roberta from Chambersburg for sending me some miniature patterns for men's clothes for the tailor's shop.
PS. The bed will look a little bit like this:
This is just a prototype to check if the measures are right. Did you notice the niche is much higher now? It looked too small before. The bedcover is a cuff of one of my shirt, LOL I have no sewing machine here so I have to use what I can find here. Another shirt with short sleeves. As the temperature is now around 40 degrees every day, sleeveless shirts are a must!
