Steward Custom Commissioned Miniature House

The above is a picture Amy Steward emailed me of her father-in-law's old house. I could not see details or colors so I made some stuff up! Amy knew the house was white, so I and fellow twitters DecoratedHouse and HolidaySparkle went searching the net for clues. We found that most white houses had white trim, but the photos suggested the trim had color. So I decided on a tan color.



I included 2 ferns because I think I see some on the pictures! Making the front door is always the most rewarding. Love doors!


Here are the little steps and railings. Wouldn't want anyone to fall off the porch! I did do a real lattice. You can't see it very well here.

I tried out brick colored chimneys, but in the end I thought white chimneys looked more elegant.
Here are the bricks up close. I made them out of a concrete mix. It was fun!
I love making this Federal style house. I also love the Colonial style(well it's almost the same)! So that's it. Another little cottage done!
