Roberta's Living Room


Roberta sent more photos of her winter cottage. When I showed my hubby and my brother the photos, they were truly lost for words! They could not believe that this is the same dollhouse that they helped me build: the dolls, the bathroom set, the puppet theater -- all come together to turn my first dollhouse into a home.



Roberta has bought two different living room sets for the house. The first one is upholstered in white and comes in dark wulnut or dark mahogany finish. The rug that Roberta chose for this set is in muted earth tones with intricate Persian styled design.

The second set is a dark cherry set with delicate curvings and gold thread on burgandy upholstery. The rug is in a darker palette of midnight blue and floral patterns.

Roberta asked me which set I liked the best. I think for this house, I like the first living room set better, since it matches the mahogany dining room set with the white cushioned chairs. Also, I like the contrast created by the white upholstery with the mahogany frame. The white cushions and the dark finish make the furniture stand out from the background of the house. The coffee table in the living room is mahogany, so I think the only change I would make would be to change the walnut finish of the first living room set to a richer mahogany stained finish.

Do you agree? Let us know by leaving a comment!

Sheesh! I like them both. My only comment would be to change the rug in the 2nd set (the red furniture) to a lighter color to show off the red upholstery.

I totally agree with you. Although both the rugs are quite beautiful, I think the lighter rug gives a more airy feel to the home, and creates a good background to show off the furniture. Thanks for the comment and keep them coming!
