Paris, Mon Amour

Hi friends,

As I said in my last post, I am adding now the pictures I took for this roombox I entitled "Paris, mon amour". It was made for my sister-in-law for her birthday in December. She loves Paris and even has the chance to go there a few times a year as part of her job. Actually, I think every person who goes there is likely to fall in love with it, it's just fascinating!!

I wanted to obtain a vintage feel of the room. The entire room is in scale 1/24, and almost everything in it is handmade by myself. The wallpaper is a dusty pale-green cardstock.The floor is bamboo.

I made the entire furniture from pieces of wood I bought from Opitec. The books are pieces of wood from a bracelet, painted white then covered in coloured cardstock. The same I did for the feet of the bookcase. The Bible is a metal opening medalion, the Eiffel Tower is a piece of jewellery, the perfume bottles on the tray are - of course - beads, and there are also some pictures of the birthday girl with my children. The orchid is made by me from Sculpey clay and planted in a medicine cap, the stand is a marker cap that I painted white white with acrylics. 

The view from the small window is a real pictures I once took of the streets in Paris. The desk and chair are made by myself and it took me a whole afternoon, as I did not follow any template for the chair. Besides, I had a rough time because I had to cut everything with a cutter as I do not have a little sow yet. All the pictures you see on the walls are cutouts  from a brochure about Paris. I framed the ones that represent paintings of the Versailles and of Sacre-Coeur. The little rug under the desk is also a piece of paper, a picture of a rug from a home decorating brochure. The little Christian orthodox icons on the wall show her faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Well, that's about it, I hope you enjoyed looking at my pictures and thank you very much for your visit! I am just a beginner in this beautiful miniature world, so I appreciate your comments even better! I have a lot to learn from you all !!!
