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

Interior of Shiuzou Makita’s secondhand bookstore

The Work of Shuzou Makita

I saw Shuzou Makita “used bookstore” post on the Facebook Miniaturas / Miniatures group page and was bowled over. His work is just wonderful. So detailed; everything just right!


Exterior Interior of Shuzou Makita’s secondhand bookstore

Shuzou lives in Kameoka-shi, in the prefecture of Kyoto, Japan. Following is a machine translation of Facebook / Details on his profile:

“Graphic design and book cover design (book design) to work. Dollhouse & miniature making is a hobby. Dollhouse Association Northeast Chapter Member, conducts production activities mainly in Fukushima Prefecture. Go mainly on Dollhouse & miniature posts on Facebook”.

So it’s a clunky translation. You get the idea.

The links on the pictures go to Shuzou’s timeline. There are many beautiful works pictured – I like all the doors – and an artists studio on February 28th.

Unfortunately, Shuzou only has bits and pieces of the bookstore on his timeline. You will have to got to the Miniaturas / Miniatures group page more pictures. It’s a public group.

Great work, Shuzou Makita!
