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

Singapore Airlines cabins – No Detail Is Too Small

Miniatures Star In TV Commercials

Isn’t great that dollhouse miniatures are attracting enough attention that creative minds on Madison Avenue are bringing the 1:12th scale world into popular culture? These four short videos show a great way to deliver a sponsor’s message, wire a miniature box to receive that commercial and a really great room in which to watch it.

Singapore Airlines

The “No Detail Too Small” title of this video is an indication of the skill the miniature artisan has in creating the seating arrangements for an Airbus A380 double-deck airliner. There’s a sub-title to this commercial: “Singapore Airlines cabins in 1,000 hours and using 100 envelopes.” Wait ’til you see the number of patterns the artisan uses, just for 3 seats. , the next time I go to Singapore, I want to book a “suite.”


Home Depot Canadian Paint Company

Home Depot

This is an incredibly creative Home Depot paint commercial where the “set” was built in what appears to be 1/12th scale. A paint mixer and can, rollers, a ladder and a human hand dipping in and out of the scene. All to a Latin beat. Heh!
