Inspiration....

It is buildings such as this in Paris that are my inspiration! I love the heavy ornate corbels, the over window detail, the balcony with beautiful iron work, the way the bottom of the building has the different detail to that of the top and of course the lovely french windows!!!
Once I decided on what I wanted, the next job was to work-out how to go about achieving this effect. Corbels and over window detail I bought while in England, french windows in actual fact came from Paris....ofcourse..., balconies I made my self as well as the detail on the bottom of the house. The iron work...I am sad to say is plastic, but once it received iron work paint, with a little bit of aging and of course rust, I was pleased with the results.
