Sneak Peek at the Tree Stump House

My inspiration for this tree stump home and it's story, comes from recollections of the wonderful illustrations by Beatrix Potter (1866-1943), Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) and E.H. Shepard (1879-1976).


Penthouse bedroom has pretty pink rose wallpaper on a cream background and cream carpet extending to the timber balcony.


The drawing room has a timber floor, elegant period wallpaper and the rug which I completed earlier.


The kitchen at floor level has a tiled floor with the traditional green and cream walls of Victorian times, which I have done my best to make look aged.

All rooms are yet to have skirting board and cornice installed, before I add furniture and fittings.
