Under Paris Roofs Custom Dollhouse

A last dollhouse for the year, Under Paris Roofs is a custom dollhouse that will be the perfect backdrop for minis.
I kept this one very neutral so it could go with any style.
The aged exterior is smooth white plaster with a grey faux metal roof. The trims are done in grey and white.
I covered a bead with white nail polish to give the doorknob a porcelain look. 
This house is 20 1/4" tall x 16 1/4" wide x 16 1/2" deep.

 On the side of the house is a bump out section with a huge picture window. Perfect little veranda or artist studio.
 I used a crown plaster embellishment above the door. This is one made by Melissa Frances.
 The aging is done with brown ink pads.

The lights are battery operated. The switches for the chandeliers and the fireplace mantle fire are hidden in the chimney with the battery.
You can see the porch light above the door. 
 Inside is filled with trims! Coffered and beam ceilings, window trims, moldings...
 Here is a roaring fire in the mantel. This is controlled with a different switch from the lights.
 The bump out entry has picture frame moldings on the walls.
 I made all the crystal chandeliers by hand.

Upstairs is nice and tall for furniture.  There are plenty of windows for lots of light. Ready to move in? This house is available in my shop:

A very Merry Christmas to all of you. Enjoy your time off with your family. The best New Year too! May 2018 be the best year ever!
