The Admiral's Bedroom

At last, I have something to show of the Admiral's bedroom. There are still one or two pieces I'd like to get for this room but I haven't found them online yet so the search continues. At some point I'd also like to fill his wardrobe and chest of drawers as well.

With the exception of the hat, the uniform, the top hat and the dressed bed everything was purchased either at fairs or online. The little box on the chest of drawers is for collars and there's a picture of his hero "Lord Nelson" on the wall. The picture on the back wall is of Chatsworth House, England's finest stately home.

The green leather sea chart tube in the chest contains his nautical maps, there's a tiny little pocket watch on the bedside cabinet and the glass on the carafe is removeable.


  1. Wow Irene, it looks great. A lot of attention to detail. You've done a fabulous job.

  2. It really looks great, with his uniform on the stand, all the other little details, even a little boz for collars, you've thought of everything an Admiral might want in his bedroom.

  3. I have completely fallen in love with this admiral and his home!
    Irene dear, this room is beautiful, just like I like!
    Strangely, we both go hand in hand, as I too have almost completed the bedroom of the Lady...
    I love how you placed the furniture and accessories: the small set shaving is impeccable!
    In short, all fabulous :-)
    Mini hugs, Flora
