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!

  3. Todas tus casitas me despiertan el deseo de hacerme pequeña y entrar en ellas! ♥

  4. Another beautiful house. I love all your houses but this one is special because it's unfurnished and it ignites my imagination on what can be done about this. I love your chandelier.

  8. Hallo,
    wow wieder ein tolles Haus. Mir gefallen die Farben an den Wänden. Der Fußboden und die Aussenfronten sehen klasse aus. Dein Markenzeichen der "Kronleuchter" ist auch wieder klasse gelungen.

  10. This house looks really nice. I like the details.

  11. I like it but I really like how you decorate them, that makes it special to me *or maybe it's because you have that magic touch to make it look so beautiful* you are such a wonderful inspiration I dont think I ever told you that. hope this doesnt come off as creepy.

    big hugs to the kitty and doggy (claudette and lilly send a meow and woof)
