After finishing the faux wicker furniture a few days ago, I've itched to work on the Newport. So, I spent part of today working on the conservatory that sits on top of the Newport's garage. The wallpaper is French Vanilla scrapbook paper by Bazzill Basics. The doors and windows have their first coat of paint but need to be finished further.

Most of the plants shown here are just stand-ins until I get the chance to make some more. The elephant ear plant by the double French doors was made following the instructions on a DVD called Master Miniaturists: Flowers & Plants. I had made floral tape plants when I was a kid, so putting this one together brought back memories!

The tiles are Greenleaf vinyl tiles. Right now, they are just on the factory sheet put in place to see how the color works with the rest of the room. I think the floor is a keeper! The rug is a paper printout of Thomas Paul rug called Seed in the coloration kiwi. I'm undecided on the rug, too. If I keep it, I'll print it on fuzzy paper for a more realistic finish. It looks good in the photo, but in person it gives itself away as a piece of shiny paper.

I have a dark green wire table in place for the coffee table. If I keep it, I'll likely paint it to match the settee and chair.
