Modern inspiration

One thing I love about working with modern miniatures is that inspiration is all around you.

While reading the August edition of Home Beautiful magazine which came free with entry to Sydney Design I came across this picture: Which got ripped out quick smart and turned into this:(The coffee table would have been silver but the shops aren't open so I can't go buy a can of silver spray paint to steal the lid from. So the lid from my spray adhesive will have to do...)

(Flooring: Black construction paper from the newsagents. Black leather sofa: Made by me years ago from balsa and leather scraps. Cushions: Sewn from scraps of fabric and upholstery samples. Poster: Cut from a magazine. Perspex and metal table and black leather and metal chairs: a vintage find from eBay. Aluminium bowls: Part of a set of mixing bowls by T.E. Brownawell. Potplant: Diane Cotterill. Red Jacobsen Egg Chair: Reac. White coffee table: Spray can lid. Magazines: Made by me. Flokati rug: Piece of teddy bear fur. Eames Walnut Stools: Herman Miller.)

You are brilliant with the miniatures. They look fab.

No doubt about you. I agree with gemma. I often think that scenes from interiors mags would be a great source of ideas, but the difference is that you actually bring them to life! Good on you.
