Dollhouse Decorating

Miniature Decorating Ideas |Articles on decorating dollhouses and the history of this artform


I have had a life-long love affair with dollhouse miniatures, and careers in art education and interior design. I hope to combine these life experiences to help other miniature enthusiasts get more out of this wonderful hobby we enjoy, a hobby that often reaches the level of an art form. Susan Downing

Brooke Tucker Master Miniaturist

Brooke Tucker’s niche in the world of miniatures is undisputed. She is a Master Miniaturist has a vision for the unique. Her work is not only widely recognized, it is admired and sought after by the very elite of her profession. Her creativity consistently meets each new challenge to achieve the perfect effect that makes each project more beautiful than the one before.

Her sense of the dramatic and her flair for theatrical design was undoubtedly fostered by her Hollywood background. Brooke grew up in California as the daughter of the well-known actor, Forrest Tucker, and her beautiful Earl Carrol showgirl mother. The stage sets were her playground,

and their design and construction made a lasting impression on her. Her flair for the extraordinary and distinctive was nurtured in the back lots of those Hollywood sets. Later she entered the entertainment world, touring first with her father in several productions and then striking out on her own on stage and television.

Brooke recalls that miniatures just seemed to appear miraculously in her life. She distinguished herself in this field very early and was one of the first to create contemporary miniature rooms with the unmistakable flair that stamps her work with that special, unsurpassed, “Brooke Look.” Her rooms capture a moment in time–a prettier, more gracious time, a world into which viewers might escape into their own reveries. What Brooke creates, then, is a fantasy in miniature, a world where imagination soars and fantasies come to life. Brooke is a gifted artisan, unsurpassed as a teacher, and will remain to many of her students, a cherished friend. She reached for the stars and having attained her goal, shared her accomplishments with all who dare to dream.?


I love the visual clarity and impact of Brooke’s work, and often use pictures as examples of my dollhouse decorating posts.
