Manor Dollhouse Update, some help too!

I need some help with ideas for the display,
 Should I put plates and cups or a collection of nick naks?
 I thought I could display things from travels or  would more traditional items be better.
This dollhouse is a modern house.
If you can leave a comment I would be happy to know what you think.
I will pick someone's comment randomly for a surprize giveaway by Dec 11th

The lillies are by the wonderful artist Barb Plevan

I also added a planter on the veranda.

 I need to make some bedding and other details for the side tables and closet.

The orchid is a swap from a yahoo group, you can read about this in this post here.
Hellie is the maker and its one of my treasures!
The trinket boxes are by my best friend Carol.
The tiny vase is by Bertie Miniatures

Update 2012: moved things around.....
Not sure but I feel this might give a better look, what do you think?

Manor Dining room

As you may know things are bad in Greece, and everyday things get harder and more uncertain.
In my previous post I mentioned that I would be doing some mini thereapy, well here it is.

let have a look at what is inside......

This reminds me of the the Cricket and the Ant story, now that it is 'winter' I am using the minis I have collected in the 'summer'. The beautiful furniture are by Masters Miniatures. I bought them at the Kensignton Dollhouse Festival. Heidi and her husband are such a wonderful people. The room wasn't ready, hence the delay to display them. 
It's a bit bare at the moment, cabinet needs filling, flowers on table, plants in the room, a rug, pictures.......

With lights on

I really like the colours and the reflections of the light in this picture

a small addition in the sitting room
