Far from finished but beginning to develop its character.
So far this room has involved a few makovers!
The table was originally polished mahogony, nice in it's own way but the dark wood just isn't suitable for this room.
The two major makeovers were
the fireplace ...
... and the sofa
I've had the fireplace as well as the sofa and fabric for a long time. When each was purchased I had no idea where I'd use them and certainly no expectation they'd all end up in the same room but I think they all look quite happy here together. The sofa isn't generally recognised as quintessentially French but a bit of research reveals the design is from the Napoleon III era. I think it suits this room quite well and will probably stay in spite of my initial plan to make something in Louis XVI style.

She has some in her Etsy store right now!
I've decided not to work on this room any further for the moment. I want to progress to the top floor and come back to this later when I have a better feel for just how I want it to be. That's not quite happening right now so onward and (literally) upward!
