Breakfast Room teaser part2, Miniature Collector Magazine and Birthday Presents!!!

Hello Everyone,
I hope you are all doing well and happy. I have mentioned many times I don't post often because I like to finish a room before I do. Well, the breakfast Room is taking longer then expected, but since it has been a while I thought I'd write just a little post and show you a few pictures of the Breakfast room in progress. I'm not writing any information until the room is complete, but for now here are the pictures:

 
 
 


I thought the room would be almost finished by now, but I forgot one thing...the floor! I planned to make a simple rectangle and frame pattern. Jo saw my drawing and said "Is that the floor for the Breakfast room? Ha! Not what I expected". Naturally when your husband says that you know something is wrong...long story short I redid the floor design and of course it is longer to make. I hope to have the room done in 2 weeks, but if I don't get it done, don't blame me, blame the floor



The second reason I posted is to share some very happy news. Sophia from smalltalk wrote an article about Dewell Manor for Miniature collector. I was beyond thrilled to see a picture of the countess's bedroom on the cover of the July issue.


 
 
 
Thank you so much Sophia. I can't wait to see the article. I heard it was great. Other magazines have published short articles about a few of the rooms in the manor, but Miniature Collector was the only magazine I used to buy every month for years. Even today I still go over old issues on the way to work. I cannot tell you what it means to  have my work published in a magazine I've collected since 1997. All I can say is it is a happy day for me.
 
 
And last but not least, it was my birthday the first week of May and once again I was spoiled...more so then ever before. My family got together and got me the chandelier for the dining room, the Tiffany from the Getzans and matching sconces:
 

It is spectacular and I cannot wait to install it in the Dining room. Thank you again Jason and Jacqueline, you know how much I love your artwork, but this one took my breath away.

I also got a wonderful bed and a beautiful table and chair set from a very dear family member I love very much. He said he thought they belonged in the manor.

 
 
Trust me, the bed is even more beautiful in real life. It fit in the boys room perfectly! However, it felt more like a bed for 2 little girls and I did not like the way it worked with the wallpaper, so the Dewels just lost a son and gained twin daughters, and I ordered a scenic paper with an Indian design from Les chinoiseries. I will also faux paint the furniture in the room because I don't think it looks realistic next to the incredibly well wood grained bed. Once the Breakfast room is done, this is my next project. I'll put better pictures of it at that time


I also got this wonderful table and chair set. I'm not sure where it will go, but I do like it in the library for now.
 
And speaking of "next projects" I was really looking forward to starting the exterior of the Manor, but
I have decided there are 2 small renovations that need to be done: I have made all the floors in the Manor except for the Dining room and the central part of the great room floor. Call it ego, call it artistic integrity, call it being a bear for punishment, but I am ripping them up and making my own design from scratch.
 
 
 
I just hate the white lines between the parquet sections. I'm thinking an oval central medallion with a sunburst design, and a grapevine and grape cluster border...I just got a set of scalpels, so naturally I think I can do anything.

 
 
This one has the same problem, the white lines. Luckily this one did not stick properly so I should be able to remove the central section...I hope. Here I am thinking a flower parquet border and maybe a cube design in the center...I'm not crazy, I have scalpels!
 
 
And that my dear friends is all. thank you again for your patience between posts. I wish I could go faster, but everything is taking longer then I think it will be. Also, thank you so much for all your great feedback on my work. I've said it before, I have the best followers ever. I look forward to seeing your new posts and again, if you are following me and I am not following you, please let me know.
 
A great big hug to all,
 
Giac

  3. What amazing birthday gifts you have received Giac - exquisite furniture and chandelier. As far as those floors, I definitely think they need the Giac touch. I look forward to seeing what you do with them. I could not believe it when you mentioned your article in the Miniature Collector magazine. That is the only magazine I do get and I have a lot of back issues I love flicking through. I find the quality of the work in the magazine very inspiring and I love the mix of new and antique miniatures in the magazine. The thing is I am off work today with a sore shoulder and the mail just arrived. I knew it was a Miniature Collector magazine but hadn't got around to opening it. When I read your post I tore the envelope open and there was your wonderful work staring back at me from the cover - it was the July issue. I have not read the article yet but the photos in the article are just amazing. Congratulations Giac on your well deserved recognition. To me having your house in a Miniature Collector magazine is just so amazing. I'm off to read the article now and be inspired by the photos of Dewell Manor.

  4. Giac,
    You must be ecstatic to see Dewell Manor on the cover of Miniature Collector! I was enchanted to see it in person and it is wonderful that you have shared your creation for this article so that others not familiar with your blog will see the Manor too.
    Congratulations to Sophia for her article - a great collaboration of both your efforts!

    Your breakfast room is going to look great. Poor boy but I agree that is a girly bed. You got some really nice birthday gifts, and happy belated birthday from me too!

    And I fully understand the need to do the floors over, have fun!

  14. Enhorabuena Giac por la publicación en la revista. Sin duda tu mansión merece ser publicada en todas las revistas de miniaturas que hay por que es un gran trabajo el que estás haciendo.
    Te felicito por tu cumpleaños, aunque sea con retraso, no lo sabía y te felicito por ese regalo tan maravilloso que te hicieron. Son unas lámparas increiblemente bonitas.
    Todo, como siempre estupendo, que arte tienes.
    Un beso y feliz miércoles

  16. Hello Giac!
    Your breakfast room is looking great. It has the feel of one I saw in real life in a house in Newport. Love the mantlepiece! That floor will be stunning though I don't envy how much work it takes. Congratulations on the upcoming story of you and Dewell Manor in Miniature Collector.
    Big Hug!

    Congratulations on the Miniature Collector article and for making the front page! Your work certainly deserves it. Having seen the Manor with my own eyes, I know that it is a masterpiece!

    What lovely birthday presents…made all the more precious because they were given with love :-)

    The breakfast room and its floor will be a perfect addition to the Manor. I am looking forward to seeing it completed, knowing that good things are worth waiting for :-)

    Hugs & Cheers,

  19. Hey Giac, Happy belated B-day! And Gongratz with the article in Miniature Collector. You make me feel lazy with all the work you put in the floors ;p
    I really like the breakfast room. I have the same size room in Marram House and I didn't know what to do with it because I thought it was to small but after seeing your breakfast room I changed my mind. Going to work with the space I have. Goodluck with the 2 "small" renovation projects. Hug AM

    Als eerste wil ik je nog van harte feliciteren met je
    verjaardag begin mei. Wat een prachtig cadeau heb
    je gekregen, de kroonluchter zal straks prachtig in de
    eetkamer tot zijn recht komen.

    Het blijft genieten om al jou FANTASTISCH mooie ontwerpen
    te bekijken en ik heb grote bewondering voor de wijze waarop
    je alles vervaardigd. Tot in [ letterlijk ] de kleinste details alles
    perfect uitgevoerd. Je bent een GROOT kunstenaar!!!

    Ook wil ik je feliciteren met het artikel in het blad
    "Miniature Collector" een grote eer en zeker verdiend.
    En dan nog op de cover jou ontwerpen, FANTASTISCH!!!

    Wil je veel succes wensen met de renovatie van de twee
    vloeren, maar dan is het ook helemaal naar je zin.

    Het is heel fijn om op je blog alles te bekijken, en
    ik geniet daar intens van.

    Veel liefs,
    Josephine

  27. Sounds like Jo needs to hang up warning signs now: "Beware of the man with the scalpels"... *LOL* But if you don't feel good with this it's better to become a floor terminator... and of course these scalpels need some excersise every now and then... Again best but belated wishes for your birthday, you received the most amazing gifts. That chandelier is breathtaking... I can hardly imagine how the Getzan's manage to put all these pieces together. The bed is beautiful although I feel very, very sad for the boy of the house... looks like dollhouse couples are very flexible with their family planning, the one minute raising a boy and the other second takind care of two girl twins. Isn't it great how our plans and visions get their own dynamics during the project? Same with the floor in the breakfast room, whatever you have planned for it, now it looks like it will become something spectacular and only spectacular can be good enough for your manor. Speaking of this - congratulations on your well-deserved publication!

    Hugs
    Birgit

  38. I hope that your Birthday was all that you hoped it would be Giac! I must say that your new birthday chandelier is DAZZLING and what a pleasure it will be to see it installed and gracing your Amazing Dining Room.
    Your Breakfast room is already a LOOKER! I love the wrap around french windows with the sunburst transoms. Also, I am truly delighted with the uniqueness of the fireplace surround; what a great shape! The over-mantle bookshelf will be ideal for showcasing any breakfast china and or your collection of knickknacks.
    I am not surprised that you are going to redo floors as you seem to have a passion for intricate designs and for making your floors to Perfection. Man, if I could do even a tiny bit of what you do with wood I would be happy-dancing all over the house. You are a true Artist when it comes to fine woodworking. Having your manor featured in print and on the COVER of Miniature Collector, is such a wonderful achievement!!! CONGRATULATIONS, my friend! I am so proud of you and I can only imagine the Cloud 9 you must be on right now! Well deserved Giac .... Very Well Deserved!!!
    Big Hug! :D

  39. Giac! With a new set of scalpels, you can do anything. The house and all that you have built into it is spectacular. I can't wait to see the new floors. Happy Belated Birthday!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Giac, you are really amazing!!! Congratulations on having your Manor published! It deserves to be seen and you deserve the accolades!
    As for this teaser.... I can't wait to see the finished product! The floor looks beautiful so far as does the woodwork and the fireplace...! And you are already re-doing other floors! I can understand the desire to do so, because we inevitably gain in skill through practice... and then the beginning pieces no longer are satisfactory. So upgrades are inevitable if you are striving for the level of perfection that the Manor asks for!
    And lastly, Happy Birthday! I look forward to seeing the chandelier installed... and the bed is Gorgeous! But it wasn't thought wrong to have a boy's room decorated with swags and swirls back then..... just look at the bedrooms of Kings through the Ages! I am glad you posted this before you had finished the room..... it's so much fun to see what you are doing! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi Giac, What a spoiled boy you were for your birthday. Luckily they come around each year and no doubt you will be hinting about what would make you happy for 2015 already!
    It is fun to see things underway. I cannot imagine redoing those floors but I can see the white lines will always irritate you - so it is a worth while project.
    Congratulations on being published in Miniature Collector - doubly sweet as you have been a fan for so long.
    regards

  68. The breakfast room is not even finished and it already gives that feel of masterpiece!! Congratulations on being published and no surprise there as I'm expecting to see more of your work published! Sorry for the belated birthday wishes but I wasn't around for a while. You were indeed spoiled with those gifts....the chandelier looks magnificent as everything else in you manor and no wonder you only want perfection and you are going to re do the floors. They look great to me but I can understand what you want to achieve. I'm really looking forward to see the changes in the manor and also to see the transformation from the boy's room to the twins girls room!!
    I hope you'll have a nice time doing all these changes. Take care!

  73. Hi Giac! The room is magnificent. I love all the changes you have made, the new wallpaper and the bedspreads! That bed is fabulous, I have never seen one like it! You truly have such unique objects in your house! I look forward to seeing what you do with your dining room. Take care!
