Tres Chic Cottage Custom Dollhouse

 A new little cottage! This is Tres Chic Cottage.

It's a neutral color cottage to fit any style.
The door and bricks are a beige tone. Everything else is white.
This house is 14 3/4" deep x 12 1/4" across x 15 3/4" tall.  

It has a porch. Perfect for seasonal decorating!

Here is the easily accessible light switch hidden in the chimney. It controls the house's 3 lights.

The interior is classic shabby chic. 

The wallpaper is pink roses over a cracked cream background.
The other wall is vertical wood strips with French panels. And of course more embelishments inside those panels. 
This house also has a little loft. Its 9 3/4" long x 4" wide and 6 1/4" tall.

Under the loft, there's an embossed paper that looks just like a tin ceiling.
Aged with brown ink pads- it's perfect!

This dollhouse is sold and Hawaii bound. Thanks Duanna! 
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!

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!
