La Bergerie Custom Dollhouse

 A new dollhouse is available in my Etsy shop

La Bergerie- The shepherd's cottage.  When I looked at it I just imagined a shepherdess living there. 
It's another study into ageing cottages- gracefully of course! 

There is a great big atrium type window. A perfect little nook!

There is a working porch light above the door. The door is grey with a slight blue touch to it.  French Grey.

This is under the atrium window.  There's no place left without details.

The battery and switches for the fireplace and lights is in the chimney. 
I love exposed bricks. They had to be part of this design. 
The bricks are brown and whitewashed. The stone foundation is done with ready mix concrete.
The little thatch roof is coconut fiber. You can find those in the garden centre. They are coconut mats to line hanging pots. 
The inside is aged yet still very feminine.  Remember this is a girl sheep herder living here. LOL!

The entry has 2 panels of wallpaper. A large rectangle on top and a square under. I just couldn't get my camera in there. 

Upstairs I added a couple inches to the wall so the roofline didn't touch the floor. Adding that will give you a bit more room for furniture. 
The wallpaper is from scrapbook paper.  And your best material for ageing is brown ink pads.  
I hope you enjoyed this house.  I will be back soon with another design!

Charlotte House 1/12 Custom Dollhouse

 Charlotte House is a 1/12 scale dollhouse. Made from scratch with my own design.  

This house is 20 1/4" tall x 13 3/4" across x 15 1/2" deep.

Charlotte house has lots of adornments, vines and flowers. 

There's a nice entryway. 
The rounded dormer windows give it that quintessential old European architectural style. 
Even the sides are fully embellished with adornments.

Inside, the walls have that vintage elegance of an old upscale dwelling. The trick is always to get those cracks to appear. They just give such an authentic look. I love it!

These 2 panels hold faded pink wallpaper. 
This dollhouse is available for purchase in my Etsy shop:
As always, I appreciate your visit so much! Have a beautiful day!
