Lighting restored.....

Now that the darker nights have started to draw in, it was a reminder to me to get on and look at why the lights in Jubilee had stopped working. Unfortunately the wiring had become damaged following our house move two years ago and it's been a job which needed a little patience....well quite alot really!
 Apart from one or two fittings which need new bulbs, Jubilee House is now fully illuminated again! 
It's such a pleasure to see it brightening up the corner of my room again.....

Here are a few photos

Exterior Views

The bay windows show the bedroom above with the parlour below

The study is on the upper left with the bathroom in the middle

The dining room is to the left of the front door

Basement scullery with the lit copper in the back left hand corner 

Then through into the kitchen 

The range has a flicker effect which looks amazingly real!
I must try and take a video of this...


The other side of the kitchen showing the pantry 

Hallway with coloured glass chandelier

The dining room is very well lit!

The parlour 

Study with desk light 
and a glimpse through the doorway to the rear landing

Lady's bedroom fire
(centre light needs a bulb!)

Bedside candle light

Attic landing with nursery door ajar

A lovely view from the maids bedroom, 
across the landing and through to the Nursery beyond... 

Maids bedroom with small candle light and fire
I just need to get the curtains made for this room. 

I love this shot through the open door
it looks so cosy and inviting.....
