Dining Room: Winter View


Can you just imagine eating breakfast here every morning with that view?  I usually shy away from the cold but this landscape was too pretty to pass up spending some time with.




It's encouraging to share these progress pictures.  Sometimes it feels like the to-do lists are never ending.  For this dining side I've got to add plexi for the windows, some trim details and a light fixture left to go. The floor and windows are what took the longest. 

 The chairs are upholstered Bespaq and the table is a sawed off candle stick bottom with a round top.  You might remember what this wall of windows looked like before and during assembly:


I don't think I'll be staying snowed in forever.  I'm leaning towards a cityscape but I don't know if it fits.  Where in the world will this house be located?!


Thanks so much for checking in.  I ended up focusing on other non-miniature related projects for 2016.  I've missed creating and following along with all your projects!  I'm starting to assemble a new living space room build which will allow for more creativity with pop up scenes. I'm itching to work on a space other then a kitchen!

Here's to a happy and creative New Year!

Kristine

    1. Your comments are always so thoughtful Elizabeth! I had planned on going much more modern for the furniture but these just seemed to fit the space better. I'm glad you agree :)

  5. I agree entirely - the scale of the table base is perfect in the light and spacious space you have created. Very lovely.

    1. Thanks Janine it's great to hear others feel that the scale is looking good! Sometimes when you build from scratch it's too easy to have things start to mismatch. :)

  8. Ooooh, Very Very lovely! I think your room is fantastic! There is such a sense of space and openness created by those magnificent windows! A dramatic view is essential, in my opinion.... else why bother with the windows? Please don't cover them with curtains! Experimenting with different "backgrounds" will help you "place" your house.... but for now you can have any fantasy you like! Please keep up the wonderful work!

    1. No curtains! Haha! I couldn't agree more! After all that tedious work of making those windows there is no way I'm covering them up :) I really hope I find the right setting. Like you said its so easy to switch it up so hopefully something just 'clicks'. Thanks so much for stopping by :)

  9. That is truly a million dollar view and the dining set is perfectly at home with it! Wish I could come hang out for a while and learn a bit about how to create such beautiful photography! Just lovely!

    1. Thanks Jodi! That's kind of the fun of miniature for me, creating mini luxuries. Good miniature photography just takes a lot of patience and lights. And a lot of space! I'm always having to clear out the room and dragging the table in to the centre so I can set up all the lights around the scene. It's a whole production project in itself. :)

  10. Oh my... that makes me feel so homesick! Looks like the yards I grew up with in January.

    Beautiful table and I love the glass front fridge. Your cabinets look beautiful too.

    1. Aww that's so nice to hear Sheila! Like I said the scene was just too pretty and won me over despite being winter. I usually like to avoid snow in my miniatures when there is so much outside my real life windows. Maybe because its been a milder winter here I was able to indulge? :)

  13. What a wonderful, sunny room. I'd curl up with a book and a pot of tea, then not leave.
