         The story of the writing of “The Kiss” 

Once a certain Count ordered a picture by Gustav Klimt for his beloved. To write a female image, the artist received a medallion, on which the Count’s fiancée was presented. The customer set a condition: he and the girl should be depicted in the picture in a passionate kiss. Klimt fulfilled his wish, the Count was satisfied. But he was tormented by one question: why in the picture their lips did not close in a passionate kiss?


Gustav explained this by trying to portray the desire, mood, and atmosphere – the motives that are thrown into the abyss of love at the moment the kiss itself.
The Count accepted the answer… She liked the picture so much that after a while the customer was leaving with his young wife on a wedding journey: seeing the picture, she immediately agreed to marry him.
Later, Klimt revealed the secret of “The Kiss”. It turns out that when the artist painted the picture, he himself fell in love with a girl with a medallion. Therefore, he depicted a tedious waiting for a kiss instead of the kiss itself. It was an act of small revenge out of a sense of jealousy for the Count.


The interior of the ideal dollhouse room will be decorated with decorative pillows with fragments of the painting “Kiss”.

I have a cup at home with a picture of that painting. I think she’s the one who pushed me into this miniature embroidery. The interior of the dollhouse deserves such a decorative pillow.

For the first collection of Klimt painting, I chose two pillows with the most interesting fragments of the picture. In my opinion, they perfectly reflect this picture.

Heads of lovers and a bright fragment of the girl’s clothes. It seems that Klimt collected all the colors and shades in the picture. That is why “Kiss” attracts attention and fascinates viewers.

Let’s add beauty to the dollhouse and make it’s interior unique.


Despite everything, “Kiss” does what a great work of art should do: it attracts the eye, forcing the viewer to admire its aesthetic qualities. That is why this work is so popular all over the world.

Dollhouse miniature pillows

Creating miniature dolls’ houses is a complex and interesting activity. Most collectors and lovers of Dollhouses often prefer to create them in the Victorian style. This is a complex and very rich in accessories style. It reflects wealth and comfort, severity and elegance.

Any small detail of the interior must follow the rules of the Victorian style. This style reflected the whole epoch, and became the heir to the “English House”. Houses of kings and aristocrats.
The Victorian-style living room confirms this
The design of such a living room looks regal, and every detail emphasizes the classic look of the time.

The decorative pillows were an integral part of that interior. In addition to their basic function, the Victorian interior cushions are becoming vivid accents.
They can be found in the living room and bedroom, nursery and study, and even in the kitchen.
Beautiful, original, unusual shape or traditional – decorative pillows in the household are simply not replaceable.
Now I am building my first Victorian dollhouse.
