Hi everyone, hope you're finding time to work on your mini projects.  I've been very busy here with life in general so I've neglected my dolls houses and my blog but now the weather is turning cold time to get playing again.

So now the tour of my Georgian house is finished (see older posts if you missed it) I would like to show you my French style house.

 I say it's French style but you will see as we go along I have chosen to decorate and furnish the inside of the house in particular in a style that is not predominantly French.  The reason for this is that I had a lot of nice pieces of furniture that I had purchased over the years and I wanted somewhere to put them.  So perhaps it's an English family living in a French house.  What do you think?

The outside of the house is just rough plaster.  I added the shutters and the black 'metal' railings you can see at the windows.  Outside there is a little space to put plants and maybe a bench (when I find one I like). You will see from the pictures I keep moving the plants as I can't seem to make my mind up what looks best where.

The hallway has a 'terracotta' floor that I made from paper.  I also made the settle from a kit by Jane Harrop.  It's a large hallway but I don't want to fill it too much as I don't like clutter.  Maybe a bicycle or a pram would look nice. And I need to make an umbrella to hang on the coat rack.

Bye for now x
