Steampunk on Sunday :The Motherlode
So, I'm creating this study for hubby, right?
You're read the blog title, you have a general idea what this is about, yes?
Today, I discovered that there are at least three
recreations of Sherlock's rooms in 221b Baker Street.
One in London at 221b Baker Street
in Switzerland, one near the Riechenbach Falls
(They need to beef up their web presence. They don't seem to have a website. Shocking!)
and another, to which Conan Doyle contributed.
Real environments people can walk around, full of authentic Victorian furniture
and genuine 19th century scientific paraphernalia.
You'd have thought I'd would have found these earlier...
Anyway, seeing these images I'm happy that I made the decision
to buy the ghastly green oops paint
for the area below the dado (chair) rail.
It fits in just right with all these other rooms I've seen,
and now I can be a little more confident that
smearing a wall with paint
the colour of two-day-old guacamole
wasn't in poor taste.
I'll be posting pictures, soon.
After I've washed this nasty stuff off my hands.
