The Attic is finished....




Yes....I am thrilled to say that I have finally finished the attic....this room was a joy to do! This is the last room of the 'petite maison' that I had left to work on, I cannot yet state that the Maison is finished as I have several rooms that need some finishing touches...but I am getting very, very close to being finished!
I shall do a 'follow-up' posting in a few days and do a 'show & tell' of some of the attic's details....I hope you enjoy my attic as much as I enjoyed working on it!
p.s....even an attic needs an 'aubusson rug'....
* I must add....I love the lighting in the first 3 photos....I got up VERY early this morning to take these photos so that I could get the early morning sun....

Bonjour Linda,
Another lovely creation, the detail is incredible, down to the little spool of thread on the floor.
Oh I wish I had a little room that looked this good and with an aubusson rug!
Bon weekend!

Tallulah Belle said...

Well that's the most beautiful attic I've ever seen :-)

I love that crown...and the table on the left.

cockerina said...

your attic is beautiful, but it seems a little too clean .. maybe I'm too used to seeing the old dirty and dusty attics, like those that makes Sylvia ... LOL!!
the light of early morning is the best to take photos ... Yes, I must say that I really like!
to look better, I saw a small doll's house on the ground: do you know that I have it like it?? has in resin and I bought in London 15 years ago ...
Who would have said ...
I wish you good day and good weekend!

Eliza said...

Lovely, though I agree with Caterina that it looks increadibly clean for an attic. Can't wait to see the finishing touches that you add to the house!

Catherine said...

The attic looks great! Yes, it is very clean and tidy. Madame must have a very good housekeeper.
I am just curious... Who are these people that occupy this house? Have you developed any sort of story about them?
Having recently discovered your blog... I am getting a bit nervous having read that this project is coming to an end. Reassure your readers and tell us you have other miniature projects planned.
The entire house is just wonderful, I love it!!!

...I don't think we should get caught-up with the idea that an attic should be dirty...this little room stores the excess furniture of the 'petite maison' and is also a sewing area, so in that regards this room should be reasonably tidy....Plus, when you get to see the total view of the house you will understand that it would look out of place to have lovely French style rooms all lightly painted and decorated and then to have the last room looking like a 'diry box'....this is why my attic is "neat"...

I love this little room, looking forward to the shots of the little bits and pieces. I'm lucky to catch your new post as I'm in the city for a few days only - taking a break from working on renovation of the cottage (no internet access there). I must say I'm missing the 'mini-world' altho I am enjoying being surrounded by trees and birdsong :)

The attic is a triumph Linda....xv

Liberty Biberty said...

Ooooh, I think I've dreamed of having a real house with a pretty attic just like that ever since I was little kid.
I can just imagine sneaking up there to sew or read...or just get away from the kids!
It's absolute perfection Linda!

You made another great work!!!!

minwks said...

All is charming, as usual, and an inspiration. Many thanks for taking the time to share your petite folie with us. We do appreciate it.

I am unpacking my mini house after some years. When I began in 1991 the vogue was for Victorian and I was a little out of sync but in fact each era expands with the imagination. Regards Janine minworks@blogspot.com

Eva said...

You have so many beautiful things in your attic. I'm looking forward to reading some details about them. The boat makes me thing of Jardin du Luxembourg. What about the crown ?

Josje said...

Ah the attic, the best place to keep your crown jewels in, lol! You have made it into a lovely room Linda, perfect for doing a little sewing, reading or crafting. My favourite detail is the little spool on the floor and the missing knob on the side table. I agree with you, not all attics are dusty and dirty, I know a number of real life examples which have been made into very nice rooms.

Mimmi said...

What a beautiful attic! Love all the details. I have an award for you on my blog http://mimmisdollhouse.blogspot.com/2010/01/my-very-first-award.html I find your blog very inspiring, and the pictures are so beautiful to look at.

Susanne said...

The room is very beautiful, Linda, and I would agree after watching your blog for a while, that dust is not the kind of perfection you are looking for. Beautiful pictures too, I evy you the natural light a little bit ;-)

rosanna said...

Lift her hand up who wants an attic like this ! Linda, you have done it again, it's such a joy for the eyes! I love the spool and the crown and the little sailing boat...I could go on with this. I love everything. Rosanna

Claudia said...

The perfect retreat! You have created such a lovely space. I love the table on the left in the first photo and the inspiration board, the rug, the crown...can you tell I love it all? You are amazing.

Glenda told Dorothy that not all witches are old and ugly....same can be true for attics! What a pretty little room for storing those "extras". It fits in beautifully with the rest of the house. I'm anxious to see some of the details.
