Tonight, I started by printing out some possible paintings for the sitting room, as well as some old photos of two Edwardian people.

I placed the photos in a tiny double frame I had.

And set it on the sitting room table. Glad to know this house now has a family associated with it.

Then I tried out a new, smaller version of the portrait I had tried in the frame over the fireplace.

It still overwhelmed the room a little too much. So I tried a portrait of a sitting woman (not sized correctly for the frame, but the idea was there).

That was already better. But then I tried a landscape from the turn of the century.

This, I really liked, although it would need to be sized a bit bigger to fit the frame.

Then I added the next two sheets of wallpaper to the drawing room.

Added yet another sheet.

And then the printer went funny on me and refused to print, so I’ll have to do the last sheet tomorrow. But here’s the drawing room for now.

I’ve decided against using wainscoting in this room because it cuts the tall lines of the room, and, after all, this IS supposed to be the most elegant and feminine room in the house. But I will add trim around the doorways and along the floor before I get to the ceiling.

And while I was printing out the wallpaper, I also printed out a larger, final version of the landscape painting, which is now in its frame over the sitting room fireplace.

Good night.
