This week I have been working on filling the Mid Century room with accessories.
I made some art works that would be appropriate for the time period. I printed some abstract paintings, including a Chegall and Picasso. I then mounted and framed them.
I also needed some magazines for the coffee table to give the room a homey feel. I printed some vintage Vogue and New Yorker covers from the internet and made the magazines up with layers of paper.
I also made a few books in the same way as the magazines. It was a challenge to find the cover art to print. I specifically looked for classic titles from the 1940s and 50s, including Catcher in the Rye, the Grapes of Wrath, and In Cold Blood.
I created a small liquor cabinet, with some whisky and a martini being prepared.
There are also some 1950 stye christmas cards on the sideboard, in time for the holidays.
I made duplicates of my accessories, you can find them for sale at my Etsy store.
Now all I need is a lamp!
