2. AMERICAN FEDERAL STYLE PERIOD DINING ROOM

Registration must be received by March 10, 2010
In 1748 the ruins of Pompeii were fully excavated, accelerating a classical revival in art and architecture. This room reflects America’s Federal Style Period of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The panoramic wallpaper simulates hand painted walls and represents tourist impressions of early nineteenth-century America. A similar wallpaper print is displayed in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House. (Look it up).
This miniature represents what a formal dining room would have looked like in a wealthy home of its period. The simple crown moldings with a single line of dentil and the raised paneling below the chair rail along with the finishing touch of an 8 inch baseboard is true to its time. The color paint is a beautiful Williamsburg blue which is matched from within the wallpaper.
The floor pattern is strait out of the famous Monticello home of Thomas Jefferson, an early federal style mansion. This room box is actually two boxes in one. The inner box is the room itself and the outer is the display box. This helps make it easy to add or electrify anything you would want to add at a later time.Techniques you will learn include: How to apply wallpaper, how to install crown moldings, and full written instructions on how to install and finish your flooring.
