Tucked away at the far-right end of the first floor, is the Living Room,
centering around a fireplace within walnut stained and gold-accented wall panels. The burning log fire and dimmed, frosted lighting outlined with walnut stained medallions, provides a more private atmosphere.
The remaining walls are papered with a print of pink roses on beige, with gold fan/leaf borders, and a green diamond crosshatch wainscot.
Once again mom came through with matching cornices and sheers made by recycling a full-sized shower curtain valance.
Bright white English styled, leather furnishings stand out amongst the dark hues. The tables are a Bespaq set.
The discerning art collector may note the oil painted pair of Monet’s Water Lilies, a true sign of prosperity at that time.
A gold framed portrait of a Victorian Bride occupies the back wall.
Tiny details include matching light green lace runners, a bird of paradise floral arrangement, candy dishes, and a lady figurine.
Victorian skirting, standing ½ inch in height, walnut stained and varnished, grounds these and most of the walls within The Queen Patricia.
The floor is again of our own design,
this time hand-laying alternating walnut and oak stained wood strips on an angle.
Our two couples, representative of the flapper era, made by Paola Ragonesi,
are viewing a movie on television as they await dinner to be served.
These customized OOAK dolls in 1920’s evening dresses are just fabulous,
from their delicate jewelry and hairpieces down to their detailed shoes!
The fellows are sporting their finest dinner clothes
with buttoned vests, tailored jackets, and pleated trousers!
The television is a miniature Digital LCD Monitor that connects to a DVD player.
