This week I added a lot of the accessories for the ToM bathroom.
The cupboard has been filled with spare towels and bottles of soaps and other supplies.
The dressing table is loaded with bottles of perfumes and unguents, a bowl of assorted jewellery and some candles for extra lighting.
There are more sparkly bottles by the sink and a raised soap dish that brings the soap up to the level of the top of the sink.
The canopy over the bath has gone; it just wasn't going to work in the space. I may replace it with a large chandelier or some such hanging over the tub.
In the back corner the toilet has been finished off with a chain and a roll of loo paper. This room now just needs the bath finishing off and a few people and accessories adding.
Over at Orchid Cottage I've started working inside and have the floors, walls and ceilings covered.
Upstairs, the walls are 'papered' with a pretty floral fabric. The floor is covered with a shiny floor board look paper. It doesn't look as authentic as a real wooden floor would, but something I've noticed about the way I decorate is that there is very little visible floor left at the end - so why fuss over what you'll not see anyway?
The ceiling beams downstairs are my solution to prevent the ceiling from sagging without an internal wall to support it. The floor is paper again, this time in a parquet pattern.
The walls are covered in a green stripe paper topped with a balsa wood plate shelf. The furniture will be refinished in a different colour.
