I don't know why but I have a real struggle finding suitable rugs. There are loads out there but I never seem to come across the right one when I'm looking for it so the search continues for something that will do the job in The Parlour.
Quite a lot has happened in this room since my last photo and I feel the room is now starting to take shape. Still lots to add - the dresser needs filling as does the what-not and there are still other little items to find for the desk.
I'm not sure if I like the circular table and was thinking of changing it to a square one but I'll think about that. The sofa to the left needs painting. It's a John Hodgson piece and I was thrilled to find it at a York Fair some time ago. I almost snatched it off their table!
The door isn't fixed in place yet as I can't do that until I've added the wall covering to the hallway on the other side and there's an pediment to go in place once that happens. More stuff has to be added to the mantel as well.
The gateau, servings and cups of tea were purchased from Amanda Speakman.
The desk is a Mini Mundus kit which I measured very carefully before ordering and it fits that space perfectly. All the drawers have been lined with green felt and it's my intention to fill every one!
