"The Darling House" Victorian Dollhouse

 This is "The Darling House"Victorian Dollhouse. This house is over the top with layers of white gingerbread from the lattice foundation to the peaks of the roof. The house color is kind of a light wet sand tone with light accents of two shades of an aqua teal . Clean crisp white give it a lace quality, and is soft against the sand tone of the house.




 The garden style flowers are all done in soft tones of pinks, creams, and lavenders. The fancy laser fence just adds another layer to the texture and pattern of the porch gingerbread.




 The house has two stained glass windows. One in the oval front door and the other in the octagon gable window. They have pink flowers and green leaves in the design.










 The hanging baskets are white washed wicker with pink geraniums, fillers and caladium leaves.




Now lets step inside the first floor.




 The aqua pallet flows through every room. Just a touch of aqua tones can be found it each room.










Now let's go upstairs….











This house is a girly girly house for sure. A small to medium size house with decent size rooms for decorating and a friendly footprint. The yummy laser cuts came from Heritage Laser, and just made the little house come alive. I had days of painting gingerbread laid out on trays, but, when I began adding it on the porch, the house just started getting this amazing personality. I seriously just worked on it almost straight through with little sleep finishing the outside! It was just so fun. icing on the cake for sure, every addition was just to exciting. I actually got up at 5:00 AM one morning to make window boxes, I just could not stay in bed another moment. Guess after making so many houses it is still fun to know that they are just as exciting to me as ever. Love this Dollhousing hobby!

This is absolutely stunning! Again, I love every one of your houses, but this pink, WOW! So sophisticated and delightful to look at. I love everything from the porch to the amazing ceiling work. Thank you so much for sharing.

Thanks Robin for sharing your most beautiful dollhouse. Your taste is impeccable! I love every single detail of this dainty but very liveable 'Victorian Lady'. I'd love to know how many hours it took you to calculate each single piece of laser trim, then fit and glue it to its chosen spot. Any idea? You have incredible patience and great skill Robin and your little 'Lady' is perfection.

Is it any wonder why most of us stop at doors, windows, roof shingles and maybe a coat of paint. I'm ashamed I'm one of the ladder, but you've given me great food for thought.

Thank you Robin for showing how me it's done!! Woohoo !!

Hello everyone, I have been wanting to start a dollhouse of my own for a while and I'm looking at these beauties by Robin for inspiration! I was wondering does anyone know what dollhouse kit she used to make this Victorian house?
Thank you all!
