"Welcome Home" Lounge

Back in December when I met Maryann Roy, she surprised me with this gorgeous credenza and these fabulous barrel style chairs. The blue is almost a perfect match to the Tiffany's blue in my Zig Zag shelving unit by PRD Miniatures. Thanks so much Maryann, I am loving them! Sadly, these are the last 1:12 scale pieces she made and it might be a while as she's pretty content (and busy) in her Barbie size world. (Minimodernistas makes 1:12 scale barrel chairs if you're dying to get your hands on some.) Maryann Roy sells fabulous 1:6 scale items on her blog here: maryannroy.wordpress.com.

This is the hallway room in my Antrim that I have been trying to find a purpose for. I think the chairs and credenza really make it a cool lounging around area. I'd hang out and read a book here.
I picked up a few goodies from CW Lubin Wood Turning on etsy; the two wooden candlesticks at the the end of the credenza, chrome metal vase on middle shelf, and the tall green vase on the upper right shelf.

Da deets: Maryann Roy: chairs, lamp, credenza, beads on middle shelf. PRD Miniatures: Zig Zag shelving unit, TV, SLICE vortex side table, square glass beads. Accessories: Re-ment, Bozart, orchid by fortunate island minis, Gilbert Mena round wood turning on 2nd from top shelf, mini dream world, CB2 ornament cut in half, dollhouse shows, craft store and ebay finds.

    1. Thanks! I bought a few ornaments to cut up to use in an outdoor scene, but this one was begging to come in out of the rain. A tad big, but I like the space it takes up. :D

    1. Cool, I was going for a more girly room as many of the rooms in my Antrim are a little masculine. I think I need more accessories to sparkle up the place. :D

  3. You know, I'm really taking to turquoise since seeing it used so well in miniature scenes.
    Maryann's work is lovely. Shame we couldn't persuade her to join the 12th scale army permanently

    Great scene =0)

    1. I gave it my best effort, but Maryann is pretty set in her 1:6 ways, which are pretty amazing so I don't blame her, she makes me want to convert ;)

      Glad you like the digs.

  5. All the elements were matched well, and all the colors were coordinated with each other. The colors are bight and happy. It would be pretty easy to have a fun time relaxing in this lounge and watching movies in that gigantic TV.
