Orchard House Custom Dollhouse

Orchard House is my latest dollhouse. This one is unfurnished.
It's an L shape design. 17 1/2" tall x 15 3/4" wide x 15 3/4"long.

All the windows are custom. They have dividers that are Popsicle sticks cut lengthwise.
The vines are all from Hobby Lobby. I have all the links in the Resources page(tab is at the top of this page). The path is sand from the candle filler section. It was white and I didn't like the stark look so I paint it with multiple colors until it was right. I laid down the sand on top of white glue.
The moss grass is a sticky mat. You just cut out the shape you want and done!
All the windows give this house a super retro look and add so much cozy charm.

The lights are battery operated. The switch and battery are in the chimney. The link for these are in "Resources".
The interior is loaded with vintage charm. I kept the colors neutral so that someone could easily furnish the spaces.
The downstairs wood floors are driftwood color. There's a linen wall on the right. And the opposite wall is a cream and blue worn wallpaper pattern. The other walls are all plaster. The ceiling has a textured pattern paper and wood beams.
The front bump out room has a slat ceiling and a nice large crystal chandelier.
 The old stairs!
 Upstairs one wall has wallpaper. It's a taupe color with cream dots that has been aged. The rest of the walls are white plaster.
The chandelier is white and 3 shades of lavender beads.
My next house is a furnished cottage. Maybe a little more English cottage style.  Thanks for coming over!

The Getaway Cottage Custom Dollhouse

This time I worked on an unfurnished cottage dollhouse that's ready for its new owner's decorating touches: The Getaway Cottage custom dollhouse.
 I kept it simple and neutral all in white. It's just like a design I did a long time ago called Sprinkled With Love Cottage.
This house took about a week to complete.

 It's  18 1/2" tall x 132" wide x 15"long.

The next house is one of my more complicated "L" shaped houses.  I've already cut it out and made the chandeliers for it. 
Have a gorgeous day!
