Here we are, looking into the Grand Salon - the door on the left has a sheer silk curtain in pale gold to match the panel trim which is wood beading painted gold and then fitted around the panels. The doorway leads into the entry and staircase to the upper level. You will notice that the fireplace has not been attached or finished. I love the settee and chairs that I recovered.

To the left is a baby cupboard (Bespac) that I decoupaged in the chinoiserie style and painted with a mahogany stain, a colour to match other furniture in the house. Blue and white wear displayed and closest is a side table and chair for reading. Note the little Eiffel towers used as book ends. These were a prize pair of earrings from a thrift store.


  1. It's fabulous - I love everything. The little Eiffel Towers are so cute - I've been looking everywhere for a tiny one, you have inspired me to keep an eye out when I see jewellery and charms :)

  2. Thank you Janine for your lovely comment on my post!
