This week I have spent a lot of effort trying to finish off the front parlour of the half scale house. I settled on a deep red flocked wallpaper and mustard trim. These colours seemed suitably gaudy for a Victorian interior.
I chose a maroon patterned ceiling paper.
To finish off the room I needed a chandelier. I am fed up with trying to shop for half scale lights, they are either too expensive (around $170 US) or cheap, nasty and really out of scale. I decided to try and make my own. It actually wasn't too hard. I bought an LED kit fromTrue 2 Scale and some gold wire.
I used 1:12 scale plastic wine glasses for the gas globes. I cut the stems off and pierced a hole in the middle for the LED to fit through.
Now all the architraves are painted and fitted, and wallpaper applied. It looks gaudy, but pretty appropriate for a victorian parlour. I have ordered some tiny palms and ferns for the parlour, as I think they are a must have accessory.
Next, the dining room!
