This was the ground-floor parlor in the house’s manifestation as Victorian mansion. I’m tired of living rooms and wanted to do something different (this is my fantasy house, so I can do what I want). Scroll down for pictures of the finished music room!

Before: The old Victorian wallpaper and the lonely Victorian fireplace.

After

Like the kitchen, this room was large: about 18 x 16 x 12. To calm it down a little I added a false wall in the back, overlooking a garden. An LED bright white light gives the illusion of sunlight.

The garden is a photograph of a real formal garden. There is about 3 inches of space between false wall and back of dollhouse. I tiled a patio to increase the illusion of depth and realness.

I like the sort of Tuscan feel of the stuccoed walls and garden.

I redid the old wooden floor with parquet including inlaid medallions.
