Modern Rustic

I purchased two new miniature items and was excited to feature them in a scene.  I nabbed this awesome wood sculpture from PRD Miniatures during his holiday sale shortly after Christmas.  I so love the texture and the line of this little art piece.  It is also helping to feed my current obsession with gnarly wood.

The asian-style cabinet came from a store I discovered using the search function on Etsy.  My Small House features both miniature furniture and accessories, some country and some transitional but the asian cabinet stood out to me as the real star.  It is very well made with sliding doors and opening drawers.  The raw wood appears to be finished with some sort of flaming technique and the metal accents pull the piece together.  At a price of $12.50 and under $ 4.00 for shipping, this piece was a great buy.

As seen at Etsy.com

I set up this scene in the first floor of the Hampton Brownston (the tea house) which I've staged and re-staged many times over.  I pulled in my PRD Miniatures love seat because the calf hair upuolstery makes the piece a bit rustic like the asian cabinet.  The colors of the Prove chairs also worked well with the cabinet.  I needed a coffee table and I felt that the acrylic one (thanks margaret_loves) kept the space from appearing too cluttered.  Since the wall beside the chairs was bare, I added a console table and accessories in white to bring a little bit of light over to that corner of the room.

Details: chairs by Reac Japan; love seat, rug and sculpture by PRDMiniatures; console table, storage box (beneath table), white vase(s), flowers and books from Dolls House Emporium; TV charm on keychain by Fred & Friends; scrapbook paper, wood side table, metal box (on table), silver vase from craft supply store; lamp and orange vase from Kaleidoscope House; laptop and telephone by Rement; teapot and frames from eBay sellers; 'Love' sculpture from party supply store; stainless bowl from Ikea; blanket, disco ball, coffee table, and rhinoceroses 'sculputre' from swap with Margaret.  Time to set up: 1 hour because I kept interchanging accessories as the pictures reveal.

Update/correction: TV keychain is made by Kikkerland

Wow, this is so well put together! You should be a 1:1 interior decorator! I am glad you were able to use some things I sent you :)

I love Paris' wood sculptures, that's one of my faves, glad you got it. I like what you did with the cabinet, really pulls the room together. Great design! I love the picture frames and the white box under the desk. Well done!
