Quick post of the French wall panels

Hi all. Just posting to answer a couple of questions I received. The panels are made by Robert Dawson of the Modelroom. I bought them at Kensington DH Fair a few years ago. Here is a close to finished shot of the panels now:

This is the fireplace wall with doors either side. The whole thing will be glazed to antique it and give it a slight sheen - I hope, in order to look like the 300yr old plus panels at places like Versailles. I am yet to marble the fireplace, and will probably marble the skirting to match. 

Thanks for your lovely comments too! Hope your week is going OK.

    Actually grew up in Brisbane and still find it difficult to get through the long dark winters of a northern clime here near Vancouver.regards Janine

  7. I love live love what you have done with these panels! They are so pretty, what a clever choice! And so refreshing to the more regular white and gold. I have used these panels a few times before and always done the gold but I wish I had tried something different like you have.
    Well done, really inspirational!
