Moss Creek Manor Custom Dollhouse

Moss Creek Manor is my latest custom dollhouse. For this one I was inspired by a modern farmhouse feel. This house is 16 1/2" deep x 16 1/2" across x 19 1/2" tall.
The door is eggplant color. A pop of color yet very upscale and up to date in feel. The little pebble path is candle filler sand. It gave the perfect look to the entry. I put it down on top of a thick layer of white glue and pat it in.
 I found the massive door at Hobby Lobby. I wasn't sure if it would work. But it does! The porch light is recessed between moldings. Hidden during the day and charming at night.
 The front door wall is brick.
For the walls I went with white but very aged to give a very vintage look. It made the door color look more inviting and warm.
 The bump out section is covered with clapboard siding.
 The dormer is plaster and the embellishment is wood.

 Both sides of the house are aged plaster.
 All the window trims are wood.
Plenty of windows in this house. The little fence is from the fairy gardens department.
 The walkway is covered in candle filler sand. This one is more of a chunky pebble mix in different colors. I thought it looked awesome with the eggplant door. A few orange or white pumpkins and you are ready for fall!
 As always all the electrical components are hidden in the chimney. This is a battery operated system.
 Inside I kept up my theme of many different finishes!

The ceilings are all different. I used the wood, plaster, beams and "tin" down here.  The wallpaper is gray script and wainscoting here.
 This pendent light is a jewelry piece I found at Hobby Lobby. It's some sort of locket because it opens. Just drilled a hole at the top for the bulb. Perfection!

 The wall in front of the stairs is linen fabric trimmed with wood.

 I make my mantels out of birch wood. Here I did the outside linen and the inside white. My favorite color combo for mantels.

 Upstairs is another light and airy space. Aged plaster, beams and wallpaper here.
 The wallpaper is a cream background with hydrangeas. The wallpaper gets a light white wash to age it a bit.

This house is available in my Etsy shop
