20 Modern Dollhouse auctioned for the KIDS charity

Thinking Out Of The Box

Twenty London architects built miniature houses in 2011 to be auctioned for the benefit of KIDS, a British charity that provides support to children with disabilities. Each of the designers incorporated an element that would make life easier for a disabled child.Besides the worthy cause involved in this project, these miniatures are one example of how diverse the dollhouse universe is today. Wonderful! Click on the image to see all twenty dollhouses. I wonder where they are today.

This is a Home Depot video advertising Premier Paints, all in 1:1 scale, except the human hand. All to Latin beats, Uh!

Prime Time In 1:1 Scale. Isn’t it great that dollhouse miniatures are attracting enough attention to trigger a creative mind(s) into bringing our world into popular culture?

Thank you Angela Tara Green in the Miniaturas/Miniatures FB Group for sharing this “must-see” video.

California Dreaming Modern Dollhouses, found on the LA Times

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.
