Maryann Roy -"Welcome Home": Neo Retro Furnishings & Set Design in 1:6 scale

"Add a little LIFE to your display!"

“Hearts’ Desire”

The idea for this set actually sprang to mind while I was photographing another piece.

I tend to think of the walls that surround Our spaces as another way to incorporate Art, design and texture.

As I do consider all of My work ART, it is doubly so with this set!  For the first time in one of My vignettes, I am including a Mural. I hand painted the design directly on to one of the walls in this set! It is based on a retro print that I found on some vintage bark-cloth fabric. Initially, I wanted to use the fabric to upholster a sofa, but the design was too large.  Loving it so, I kept the image tucked away in a folder, knowing that some how in the future, I was going to incorporate it into My miniature world.

Funny how inspiration works sometimes.

Having a little creative fun!

Hello Everyone

I took a short break from furniture design today, to customize a doll. I just felt the need.

I have re-imagined a “Sleepy Time Gal” reproduction Barbie by customizing her face paint and restyling her hair. 

She was such fun to pose and take photos of, that I just wanted to share with all of you.

Maryann

New furniture designs coming soon!

“Mannequin Maven” – OOAK

 

Hello Everyone

As noted in my previous newsletter, Hilda Westervelt and I, once again,teamed up to bring you some OOAK dolls for the “One Of A Kind” Festival, last week, in New York City.

The collection boasted 6, One Of A Kind, Silkstone Beauties. Each hand painted and hair styled by Me, and each dressed impeccably, by Hilda. Our “Mannequin Mavens” are only offered once or twice a year, which makes them even harder to obtain.

5 of these Beauties have already been taken. But tonight, I offer you ” Met Ball” !  A distinctive, fresh-faced beauty with the facial screening reminiscent of Vintage Barbie.

She has demure, hand painted features and her hair, styled in an over the top beehive bun, framing her delicate face.

Her gown, made of plaid silk taffeta was designed especially for her by Hilda and reminds Me of Cinderella in all her glory!

She is the last in this collection of “Mannequin Mavens”!

First one gets her by going to :

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at: welcomehome@maryannroy.com

“Mid Century Miss”

As most of you know, I love set design and creating spaces (in miniature) that resemble mid-century life.

Although I had a basic idea for this set, it kind of evolved while I was working on it.  I can honestly say, it’s My very favorite set so far! The colors, the elements – all working together. 

May it please You as much as it pleases Me!
