The Little Chamber is finished.

This is my Little Chamber. It is recorded that this room was possibly rented by a certain Sir James Creichton of Fiendraucht, Kt.

The little seat pads were created by my sister Valerie and a copy of the original design in the 1:1 building.

The painting is by a Dutch artist, Anthony Claesz (1592 - 1635). Unfortunately I couldn't find the exact painting that is hung in the 1:1 building but it's by the same artist. The other painting  is by another Dutch artist (unknown) and of the same period.


  1. This really is something special. Well done.

  2. Irene, it looks great. I love the room, it looks very real!

  3. Irene, this room is perfect! I love the big piece of furniture with designs on the right. it is wonderful and very realistic!
    I saw your picture in your profile ... I see you finally! pleasure to meet you!
    kisses, Caterina

  6. A wonderful peaceful room, it's very nice with the dark of wood ans white walls, perfect!

  7. Irene, you've done it again! I'm in total admiration for your ability to reproduce a room with such restrained elegance and sensitivity. Wonderful, and so satisfying!

  8. Irene, it's beautiful! So serene and completely to the period! I love all the details - like the accurate painting and the wooden shutters and the GORGEOUS furniture! Very VERY inspiring!

  9. I was at least an hour to observe all the details in this great little room! The light is fantastic, the furniture is fantastic, everything is fantastic!
    You always make me lots of compliments but they are undeserved, and I realize that just by looking at the quality of your work, the elegance and simplicity of this one room: I have a lot to learn! I love, simply love beautiful things and you :-)
    Mini hugs, Flora

  10. Thank you so much everyone for your positive comments. Given that there's not a lot in this room it took me longer to complete than I expected but I have to say, I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. The sun shining on the day the picture was taken was, for Edinburgh, a big bonus!

    The next room is The Painted Chamber. If you click on the inspirational building on the right and scoot down, you'll see what I'll be trying to achieve.

    Thank you all once again.

  11. Ha ha! Edit that last paragraph. If you click on the picture of Gladstone's Land you'll see The Painted Chamber at the top of the page!
