Art Nouveau roombox.

It's been such a long time since my last post, sooo many things had happened. These two months were very busy, I had no free time at all! I have 1000+ unread messages in my Google Reader, I'll be happy just to look through some of them.
I took part in two exhibitions in Moscow, the first one was "Art of the Doll" ( it was said it was the biggest doll exhibition in the world, hehe) - it was very, hm, unusual event. Lots and lots of beautiful dolls, only 2 or 3 stands with dollshouse miniature, and I was one of them.

On such kind of exhibition people there are for dolls, so some of them saw the miniature for the first time, they were asking if it was some kind of interior decoration or just a toy, why it's so expensive (actually, any price was too high for them :)). So we felt that were at the wrong place in the wrong time. The second exhibition in December was almost the same thing :)

Anyway, it's been fun to meet some very cool miniature enthusiasts who came just to see my furniture and roomboxes, so I can't be ungrateful. For these two events I've made several items.First of all, I've finished my art nouveau roombox, well, for me it's never finished, I just love adding new things from time to time:

 I've changed the mirror, this one is more "art nouveau"-ish to me :) It was very simple to carve it, it's made of mahogany.  I also changed the carpet:

 I've added the painting, and couple more details:

 The room looks very romantic to me, hope you'll like it. I'll show the new great piece of furniture tomorrow and 3 shadowboxes later:)

It is absolutely wonderful! The mirror is so elegant. :)
I also never quite finish my miniatures, there is always something new to add, or to change... it's part of the fun!
I can't wait to see your new things.

@Maia: Thank you, I love the mirror too, it was surprisingly easy to make, about half an hour.:)

@Daydreamer: Thank you! With the mirror I was very lucky to catch the style.
