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

Art Deco Miniatures Anyone?

Here’s a great resource for images, from which you can make patterns for the accessories you will want to make yourself. The 1stdibs website sells very pricey originals and replicas of designer products. Shop away, if the price tags don’t throw you.

For artisans, it is a treasure trove of clear images of great products from which to make patterns of pieces in any scale. Most have pictures from multiple angles. The top navigation bar has these tabs: Furniture, Fine Art, Jewelry & Watches, Fashion, Collections, Magazine.

The radio pictured is the Sparton Model 557 “Sled” Radio, designed by Walter Drown Teague. Price: $5,900. Does it work? Not necessarily. The description includes the statement that ?this prime example of a highly sought after Art Deco streamline style of radio, with ‘speed lines.’ is sold as a decorative piece.?

Ah, well. We all have to accessorize. Still, this website is a great resource.
