The family are increasingly frustrated in trying to get into the main house at Graymont. So far, the only areas they've penetrated are the south wing and some cellars. They've done the best they could for a living-dining room, with some metal garden furniture and a round stone table. The fireplace and columns were already in place, and the girls found the big Art Nouveau posters. For chair seats and pads, Mama doll chose the colors in the posters, and she added more garden style with the screen and drapery at the far end of the room.
The glass tea table and frosted glass sideboard help to keep the room from looking too crowded. Mama hates to think of bringing oil lamps into this pretty room, and having gas lights or electricity put in doesn't seem worth the money (which they don't have, anyway), since their residence there will probably only be temporary. Maybe she'll use candles, if she can find something to set them on.
The 4 posters are by Alphonse Mucha, and are called "4 Times of Day."
