Here you'll find twelve remarkable, perfectly-scaled rooms, each one based on a different theme - from historically accurate rooms such as a Shaker interior to a highly imaginative, Egyptian-inspired bedroom. Monet's French Impressionist dining room, a Santa Fe-style store, and a room from an American settler's house are also among the stylish rooms featured.
Each room displays the skill and imagination required to create a perfect miniature setting, from choosing the furnishings and deciding how to arrange them to decorating the room itself. Ingenious ways to customize, reupholster, and stain miniature furnishings also are described.
Dollhouse Decorating will delight and inspire everyone who appreciates creative design and meticulous craftsmanship.
