For a while now I've felt as though any mini-ing I have done has been more by way of buying than actually doing. I can never decide whether it's better to decorate all the rooms of a property then fill them gradually or decorate and fill before moving on to the next room so with that in mind, what I do have to show you is a decorated space. I have some of the furnishings but not all.
This is The Great Hall - it would have been used to greet/entertain visitors who were not so well known or not important enough to be taken to the private rooms upstairs.
The piano was a basic bare wood affair to which I have added carved panels and lighting. (I have also just noticed that it lacks pedals! These were removed because they looked too clunky and will be replaced).
The area in the corner below gives the impression of access to other areas. I've deliberately left out a kitchen in this property as I've done three already and wanted to use the spaces for other things so we can imagine the stairs leading to the services located elsewhere.
The door to the right leads to the Dining Room. The little Coats of Arms were taken from a postcard and mounted on varnished panels.
