I might be too old for dolls houses…
But I’m definitely not too old to marvel at them in all their dinkiness.
When I was little I had a gorgeous diddy dolls house. Loved the mini-cutlery, the way the front opened up, the mini-people, mini-beds and I do believe I made my own mini-duvet covers once upon a time too. Funnily, my mother now calls my apartment “the dolls house” because it’s quite diddy too – so most furniture pieces are ever-so slightly scaled down to fit… (you don’t want to know how long it took me to find a dish rack to fit the teeny-tiny draining board…)
Anyway, I’m enthralled by this dolls house designed by Deborah Bowness (the lady behind theblack dress wallpaper
) for Caravan
in time for London Design Week. The interiors have all been styled in the quirky-Caravan-way. You can’t see much of it in the photo, but you can see the mini-mood lighting. And if there’s a mini Caravan rose-shaped-tea-strainer in there, I’m all over it.
This post reminds me that ages ago I found an amazing blog post on a mini Charlie & Lola dolls house here.
Again, I know this clearly isn’t my age group (ahem), but it is super cute… Since seeing a picture of Lauren Child
‘s (C&L’s amazing creator) home, I’m hooked on her style too – fab use of colour against glossy white.
I’ve got a busy week ahead, as I’m planning a trip down to 100% Design tomorrow (hopefully) so check back here to see what I’ve found. And in the meantime, check out the retro milk wall-stickers in the Charlie & Lola dolls house kitchen!
