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

California Dreaming Modern Dollhouses

That’s my thought for the day. I love all period dollhouses, Victorian, Edwardian, Colonial,  as much because of the history they evoke, as the craftsmanship. But I need to see contemporary works too, to see where our wonderful obsession is going, as well as where it’s been. So, when I feel the urge, it’s California Dreaming Modern Dollhouses for me.

I love the L.A. Times 2013 Designer Dollhouse Show website and have it bookmarked to visit occasionally. Here’s a blurb about the show on the front page of the Home & Garden section:

“Take 10 custom-built houses, add 20 of L.A.’s top interior decorators, shrink everything to Barbie-size [well, “smaller”], and what do you get? The California Dream In 1/12th Scale.”
