This set was inspired by a 1960’s film entitled “Who was that Lady”. The film was shot in black and white and the story line was rather droll. But, Oh! The mid-century décor! 

There is a lot to see here and a lot to read !  So let’s get to it .🙂

Surround walls are painted antique white with matte gold trim. Base and stairs are painted burnt sienna with matte gold trim. Folding screen is metallic/birch-look, heavy card stock paper. I purposely did not mount on wood to keep the light flowing through the area. The folding screen implies designated separation between the rooms.

2 Acrylic “Birds of paradise” wall plaques   – pale blue in color.

Dinette Set – Round Table and 2 Chairs.  Chairs are designed by Me and feature floral design backs. Seat covers are made from vintage Japanese brocade in shades of orange, white, gold and a hint of pale blue! Chairs are painted gold.  Dinette table is round and cut by hand. Painted a lovely pink hue setting off the orange brocade seat covers.

Glass Bowl with floral design – Designed by Me. Leaves are hand blown glass arranged in a floral pattern. Bowl is plastic. A lovely piece!

Floor Plant – Extra tall for a little added privacy and dividing the dining from the living space.

Built in Cabinet Wall – Rounding out the room, a built-in cabinet with light up capability! Entire piece painted antique white with matte gold trim. Cabinet front finished with translucent window to allow light through and gold door knob pulls (doors do not open).Cabinet top lifts off to expose designated area for 3 LED lights. (Package of unused lights will be included).

Living Room Sofas – 2 unattached sofas.  One single sided arm with full back. One arm less, with half back. Both pieces upholstered in white fabric. Tufted backs and seats give this sectional a glamorous look!  Tapered legs and wood painted brown.

Pillows! – What’s a sofa without pillows?!  9 luxurious pillows made from an array of vintage Japanese brocade, pink silk and peacock blue taffeta.

Coffee Table – Large rectangular piece painted burnt sienna with tapered legs.  A perfect place to house floral arrangements and small treasures.

Floral arrangement – Mini pink Hydrangea in a copper metallic vase.

Table accessories – Metal floral dish, small glass decanter.

“Fresh Idea” Vignette

Last week I posted a color board for another vignette I was working on.  Although this set has already been SOLD, I know you most of you were intrigued by the peek and would love to see the results.

I created this vignette to be set up one way – with the wallpaper feature to the right of the room. However, I thought it might be fun to see how it would look with that wall to the left, so I had a little fun with the photos and just flipped a few shots horizontally to get that effect.   I like it both ways, really, but wanted you to know why the room may take on a different look in some of the pictures.

I love creating one of a kind sets. It gives my creative mind a chance to flow and sometimes I just freely follow where ever it goes.

Hope you enjoy!

Here is the color palette:

“Vintage Vogue” – A Vignette

Hello Everyone

This one of a kind set was inspired by a vintage illustration of a mid-century room, so it may have a look a familiarity about it.  What I love about working in this medium, is the fact that I can bring a picture to life by recreating it in a 3 dimensional way.

My hope is that you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it!

There is only one set available.  Details and purchasing information is listed  below the photos.  Please contact Me for purchase and availability.

Thank you!

A “One of A Kind” Vignette/diorama coming soon !

Working in the studio today.  I haven’t made a one of kind set in quite a while and recently came across a vintage picture of a room that I was certain would translate into miniature quite well.  So, I’m currently working on this one of a kind vignette. You can see the general idea in photo below.

I think the combination of these beads will work out perfectly as hanging lamps!

Stay tuned !ad
