Some Accessories for the Mid Century Room

This week I have been working on filling the Mid Century room with accessories. 

I made some art works that would be appropriate for the time period. I printed some abstract paintings, including a Chegall and Picasso. I then mounted and framed them. 

I also needed some magazines for the coffee table to give the room a homey feel. I printed some vintage Vogue and New Yorker covers from the internet and made the magazines up with layers of paper.

I also made a few books in the same way as the magazines. It was a challenge to find the cover art to print. I specifically looked for classic titles from the 1940s and 50s, including Catcher in the Rye, the Grapes of Wrath, and In Cold Blood.

I created a small liquor cabinet, with some whisky and a martini being prepared. 

There are also some 1950 stye christmas cards on the sideboard, in time for the holidays.

I made duplicates of my accessories, you can find them for sale at my Etsy store.

Now all I need is a lamp!

  3. Delightful project! These furniture must be rather expensive... Love them

  4. You really make miniatures fun! I love what you do with each room. I have never seen you furnishings elsewhere which is what keeps this hobby fresh and fun! Oh, by the way I believe I saw the book "The story of O" LOL

  5. Your new accessories are awesome, what a wonderful room!

  6. You really have captured the essence of the era perfectly - love the idea of the martinis.

  7. Wow! It's a kid's room! The cabinet, wall shelves, the chairs ....
