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

The Drew House

The Drew House

This dolls  house was made ​​in the early 1860s for the Drew family, hence the name. Some repair and restoration has been done to it. The furnishings are of good quality, many made by the firm of Schneegas of Waltershausen in German y, who specialized in quality dolls’ house furniture.

The house contains all the original furnishings. The kitchen is well stocked and has an up-to-date closed oven instead of an open range, which would be more appropriate for the time.

Here is a link to a wonderful Ileano Ottini video:

Thanks to the Victoria & Albert Museum for the text and photographs.
