I've taken a great 1788 furniture plate image of a late 18th Century
French decorated room from the my post
altered it and used it as a background to create another fun piece of digital art.
|The French Room by EKDuncan|
The Blue Room above was created using vintage French fashion plate images.
The Room is from a 1788 issue of "Magasin des Modes Nouvelles, Francaises et Anglaises"
The elaborate French Sofa is from a 1786 issue of "Cabinet Des Modes ou Les Modes Nouvelles"
Both Fashion Ladies are from "Magasin des Modes Nouvelles, Francaises et Anglaises"
The 1788 lady (left) can be found HERE in several of color choices.
The 1787 lady (right) can be found HERE in a variety of color choices.
The original background from the French publication looked like this.

I thought this image had a great look to it but I still wanted to tweak it a bit so I made several extensive alterations in Photoshop till I arrived at my EKDuncan version of the room.
|My altered version of the 1788 room used in the French Room Scene at the top of the post|
I altered the original room in Photoshop so that the paneling appears more dimensional in the walls and ceiling; then I made several color adjustments till I had a color scheme I liked.
This one has Pistachio Green Walls with Blue-Green and Gold Accents.
Once all the major work was done I decided to play around with colors so I had several color choices. I enjoy seeing how the room changes based on slight color variances.
These are the other color combinations I came up with for this setting.
|Teal Walls with Gold, Green and Pink Accents - Pink Floor|
|Marine Blue Walls with Gold and Blue Accents - Beige Floor|
|Olive Walls with Gold Accents - Tan floor|
|Sage Walls with Green and Gold Accents - Beige Floor|
|Lilac Walls with Green and Gold Accents - Tan Floor|
|Green Walls with Green and Gold Accents - Green Floor|
|Gold Walls with Gold, Green and Pink Accents - Gold Floor|
For my artscene I could have used the room as is; however I chose to change the look a bit more by adding in an additional piece of vintage furniture to give the room a cozier, less formal look.
I chose an elaborate French Sofa since I thought it was quite attractive.

Once again I took the original furniture plate image and created several color versions.
So One Room, a funky furnishing and two lovely ladies later I had this fun scene.

I do enjoy looking at vintage fashion and furniture plates on their own;
however I think they have more personality when displayed in a scene.
I've got one more "Georgian Room Scene" coming up so please visit again.
Till Next time...
