A Vampire Study ~

I hope everyone is enjoying spring, we are having rain showers in the afternoons that are making anything green grow inches overnight. Spring is the season of renewal ~

The remodel continues at Raven's Moon, Nigel and Winston are almost finished painting with Hattie breathing down their back to hurry up so she can decorate ~

 I have one room ready to show a peek at, I still need to put the molding around the ceiling back but haven't decided what I will use yet.

Let's go see what we have so far.....

Here we have the new flooring and all soft white walls and ceiling, excuse the lack of molding around the ceiling ~ The light from the fire and the candelabra will be the only lights in this room, the light walls and ceiling bring in way more light than dark walls, ceiling and floor like before ~ The flooring is just printed out on a parchment card stock ~

This is The Counts study that Hattie is decorating as a surprise for the Count ~ The baseboards are done in a gray white wash ~

The fire is a bulb with Silicone in the shape of flames that are coated with red Gallery Glass, the grate and fire back are made with filigree wraps, there is a brass stamping on the front with entwined snakes ~ I will do a tutorial when I do the next fire for another room ~

This is the rug I decided to use in the study, I wanted this room to look like a man's room ~ I can see the Count spending most of his time here... maybe to avoid the all the noise of a household containing Hattie and two little angels ~

I had the perfect chair for the Count, Ara Bentley made me this chair in a trade, here is her etsy shop where she sells these beautiful chairs Bentley House Productions ~

Here is the desk I chose, I had no idea what I was going to use for a desk as this room is so narrow ~ This harp table is just the right size for the room, I think the table came in a lot I bought off eBay, it was always too big everywhere I tried to put it ~

View of left side of room, my daughter gave me this Tut statue, I am wild for anything Egyptian  ~

Right side of study with low desk and cupboard, both pieces are old Bespaq, another Tut statue from my daughter ~ 

I think The Count will like his study ~ It will be a Vampire Study, The Count studies vampire history in his spare time so the room will be filled with his research materials, artifacts, books, pictures and his collection of skulls ~

I am not sure what room will be revealed next, you will just have to wait and see. Still to be done are the parlor, nursery, dining room and my favorite Hattie's sewing room  ~

We will all be back soon with more news on the remodel ~

None of the people in this story are real ~
People are never real except after midnight ~

Big Hugs,
