Maison de Printemps Custom Dollhouse

 Continuing with my French theme lately, Maison de Printemps is ready!

This house has grand floor to ceiling windows. I think that is the essential detail in French design. 
I used that traditional grey color to make the door pop against an all white interior and exterior.
This house is measures 16 3/4" tall x 12" across x 16" deep.
I added a Melissa Francis embellishment to the door. I made the door knob using a wood bead I painted with white nail polish. Looks just like porcelaine!

I was originally planning to put a little window on the roof. But I decided to change things up and us another Melissa Francis embellishment.


My most popular question is where are those vines from- they are Hobby Lobby's Baby's Breath Garland:

The flowers too come from Hobby Lobby: https://www.hobbylobby.com/Floral-Wedding/Flower-Stems/Pink-Statice-Spray/p/2753
I always hide the switches and batteries in the chimney. All the products I use are listed on my "Resources" page at the top of this blog.
The interior is definitely a wedding cake!






I hope you enjoyed your visit.  As always the house is listed in my Etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/cinderellamoments/listing/968383388/maison-de-printemps-custom-dollhouse?utm_source=Copy&utm_medium=ListingManager&utm_campaign=Share&utm_term=so.lmsm&share_time=1615930700495

La Maison de Thee de Marie Antoinette Custom Dollhouse

 La Maison de thee de Marie Antoinette is a 1/12 scale custom dollhouse. For this one I wanted a sophisticated and feminine look. So I thought a house where Marie Antoinette would have had her tea and macarons would be adorable. Here is the result:











Here is a closeup of the battery and switch system I use for the lights and fire.

These flowers and greenery are from Hobby Lobby. They are regular size florals. I just look for some that I can cut up into small pieces when I'm shopping. 















I hope you enjoyed the photos and that it has inspired you. If you are interested in this house it is available in my Etsy shop:
