Dolls house bedroom

I decided to concentrate on one room at a time in the dolls house. I am doing a bedroom for the lady of the house, in feminine pinks and greens. I want to be fairly true to the Victorian era, but I am not going to be too fussy about it. As long as it looks Victorianish I am happy. I don't think I would enjoy it as much if I was trying to be too strict with it. A bit of artistic licence is fine, as at the end of the day it is a dolls house not a scaled building!

The wall paper I used for this room is small pink flowers on a green background. This is actual wallpaper and not a specialist doll house scale wallpaper. Therefore it is thicker and easier to put into place. I am using a tub of border adhesive to paste it on.

Once the base paper was up, I turned my mind to the freize that would be up above the picture rail. I searched for some idea's and here are some of the ones that I found.
