Bohemian dollhouse of exceptional quality

This is one of the most adorable dollhouses, so much detail and yet not at all overdone. I love the colours and the lighting she uses to take the photos. There are some really good ideas for how to use everyday objects in new ways too. You can see more photos on her flickr account: amyla174.

Miniature artist dolls

These would be great for a halloween house. They are made by French artist Julien Martinez. These ones are 1/12 scale, but the site also has some other larger dolls/sculptures which make the mind boggle!

English house

Found this awesome English house for auction on Ebay:

There are photos on their site showing an actual house, so it is a faithful reproduction of an actual house. Very cute.

Where does time go?

Ack, I have been lazy! So for now, I will give some beautiful inspiration.

This photo comes from the Betsey Johnson website, and is just so stunning. I love the colours and the layering, very French. It has given me a great idea for a little cottage, probably made of stone, with overgrown vines and rambling roses. I love the beamed ceilings with the over-the-top wallpaper. But this too will have to wait until I have finished other projects!

Next is an awesome white Gothic house. I think I found it on the Greenleaf forum, but I can't remember who posted it. Anyways, my apologies to that person!

I am loving Gothic houses at the moment, ever since I saw this pink version of Greenleaf's Westville. Subsequently, the Westville has shot to the top of my 'must-haves' list. This is one made by another member of the Greenleaf forum. She makes dollhouses for children who are seriously ill I think. Very pretty.
