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

Mulvany & Rogers – Boutique and Apartments

Of the many marvelous miniatures created by, Kevin Mulvany and Susie Rogers, I think this 17th century “hotel particulere,” now a very classy apartment above an haute couture shop, is my favorite. The boutique is so chic and has such a clean, modern look. The apartments have everything, from an eclectic mix of classic interiors to the mundane – a broom closet.

Mulvany & Rogers Boutique and Apartments Video

One thing I treasure most is a BBC interview about this work. When the commercial side of my 1:12 scale life – making accessories and getting them shipped on time – begins to dull the magic of the miniature world, I watch this two-minute video of lovely images and a calming soundtrack. It reminds me of what is actually possible with the dollhouse miniature craft I love.

Daily Mail

In 2014, Les Wilson wrote an article about the dollhouse for the Daily Mail, lots of pictures included. Click here for a link to a reprint of the article.

Other Articles

You might be interested in two other articles I wrote on the works of Mulvany & Rogers. The miniature of the Royal Pavilion at Brighton is on exhibit at the Museum of Brighton and Hove. Their Spencer House is part of the Kathleen Savage Browning collection on permanent display at the Kentucky Gateway Museum.
