Brummies Hollow Custom Dollhouse

Brummies Hollow is a farmhouse cottage like you would find in the European countryside. As always I did the exterior with many different finishes for that vintage look. 
There's plaster, plaster and timber, vertical siding, and bricks.
The house is 20 1/2" tall x 12 1/2" deep x 14" across.

 I made the wreath and the tiny roses on it.  There's a lattice under all the vines by the door. The path is done with candle sand. Just lay down a nice thick layer of glue, and press down the sand into it. The grass is a sheet of moss you can buy at Hobby Lobby. It has a sticky back side.
I did a cute little bump out. I think it's my favorite part of the house.
The bricks are done in concrete. All the links to these products is on my 'resources' page. I like hand sculpted bricks that are not perfect. I don't want a sterile look.  So I draw/sculpt the shapes in with an old X-Acto knife when the concrete has set for about 10 minutes.

There are 3 different roofing materials - pine shingles, corrugated and coconut fibers.

I use a battery operated LED light system. I hide the switch and battery in the chimney.
 I kept the interior very neutral. This house would be so easy to decorate! I may do it later on if it does not sell empty.
 There are 2 rooms. One on each level. I left them wide open so you could have many furniture arrangement possibilities.
 The bump out would be perfect for a little table or desk or cozy reading nook.
 Upstairs reminds me of Restoration Hardware for some reason. Maybe it's that gray wall.

I hope you enjoyed your visit!  This house is available in my Etsy shop. Until next time, keep creating mini wonders!
