Dressing The Bed

Please double click on photos for a close up.

I am working on dressing this Phoenix kit bed I painted. This is the first time I have ever played with fabrics to use in a miniature setting. At this point nothing except the bed skirt in fixed in place. I still have choices. I also haven't used any hairspray on it yet. Luckily I was able to end the scallops at all the cornes in the same place on the pattern.

I am not sure pure silk was the best choice for a duvet cover I don't like the sheen I am seeing in these photos. I think if I use it I will fluff it up a bit using fiber fill under the covers to make the bed look like a feather one. I still need a folded blanket at the foot of the bed. Hopefully in cotton with a pattern of some sort. Oh... And lots of small pillows.

To those who do not speak English my apologies for the Google Translator. I will reinstall it as soon as possible! It seems to be broken in several of the blogs I read too.
