The interior details, particularly the fireplaces, were inspired by those in Rembrandt's house in Amsterdam. There is a great web site for the Rembrandt house, with a virtual tour:http://www.rembrandthuis.nl/cms_pages/index_main.html
I took ideas for the furniture from various paintings of the period.
Some details: A painter has just finished a portrait in the lower left room; the sitter's hat and cane are on the table. The kitchen has a built in bed. The upper left room has a baby house on the back wall.
I was having some camera issues (since resolved)when I took the interior shots, so they aren't as clear as I would have liked.
