Orchard Cottage Finished!

Wow, regular posting - am I alright?! I have dived back into the world of Sylvanians and I am loving it more than ever. I have made some new purchases and I plan to share those with you soon too :)

After I think, nearly three years (?!), Orchard Cottage is finally finished. To see the upstairs room and the repaint, see this post. The main reason, other than my procrastination, that it has taken me so long is that I could not decide what colour scheme to go with in the downstairs room. I would usually go for a muted floral in the kitchen/living area, but I felt with the very floral room upstairs, this room called for something different.

Orchard Cottage isn't meant to be a grand home, so instead I went for a cosy theme with pale yellow. I wanted the walls to be white as this room is quite dark. However it ended up feeling too "plain" for a traditional Sylvanian home, so I ventured into the relm of making curtains.

My sewing machine has given up on me, so I had to hand stitch all of the curtains - (I do not recommend this, just these three sets took me two whole evenings!). I do think they make the home look a little more cosy though.

I also painted the floor in this room as well - I just loved the colour!

A lot of you have been asking who will be moving into this house...here is a few hints!

The Brighteyes bunnies have moved in and are very comfortable - even if it did take Mr Brighteyes three years to renovated ;)

  1. It looks great Lily! Glad to hear that you are back into your Sylvanians! I love the colour scheme of the house, it does make it look so cosy, the floor looks just so good, how did you do it?. The curtains you hand sewed are amazing! The Brighteyes are so very lucky to live in this wonderful house. =) You probably don't know this yet, in 2015 I stopped blogging for a while but I now have a new blog which I try to update every weekend! (though I really need to post something today but have not planned a story or anything, eek! I am sure I will think of something though =)) Here is the link Lily if you want to take a look around:
