I thought I would not be able to finish this mini room until the middle of April but here we are. When you have long accepted the fact that “procrastination” is one of your constant companions, you do not exactly question bursts of creativity. You go along with it. And wish that your good, old friend doesn’t sneak up on you one day and say “Oh, you did these? You were only dreaming, you know. It’s time to wake up and realize that you did NOTHING. BWAHAHAHA!”


And now for the details I made myself or life-size items I used as decor elements for the mini room:

1) Bead as vase. 2) Illustration from a life-size pattern and used as yep, a pattern. 3) Stickers with vintage illustrations as sewing books. 4) Cabochon vase + paper doily as tea serving tray. 5) Fabric scraps + more books.

1) Scrabble tile sign. 2) Paper box lid covered with fabric as inspiration board. 3) Rolls of fabric. 4) Life-size thimble and spools of thread. 5) Meter stick end with wood dowels as hooks. 6) A surprise from the boyfriend. 7) Fabrics from fabric scraps. 8) Dress form made of Styrofoam and covered with paper tape.

1) Vintage pattern wall art. 2) View cut from a magazine + curtains made of paper and lace. 3) Lamp base from an embroidery hoop screw. 4) More spools of thread as decor.

You will probably notice by now that my design inclinations lean towards shabby-kitschy. You might wonder if this translates to real life. The short and best answer is YES. Our flat has more personality than me, the boyfriend, and our 3 cats combined. I said 3 because nothing can possibly have a bigger personality than Egg.

In the interest of creative pursuits, I shall try to make a modern or minimalist dollhouse next. Wish me luck!
