|The French Countryside Stone cottage Dollhouse|
This is the lovely Stone Cottage dollhouse with a working waterwheel. It is a French Countryside theme. Although it is quite rustic, I like to think of it as " elevated country", in that it is also elegant. This combination of country style and French chic creates a wonderful design and imaginative pallet for decorating possibilities.
The large railing on the roof line as well as the two small railing pieces at the front entrance and panel in the Dutch door, are finished in a hammered metal tone. Using this color instead of black kept the soft quiet pallet of the house.
The cooking area in the kitchen was a custom design . The bricks were all cut and custom painted to compliment the tones in the wallpaper. The paper is a lovely elegant pedestal urns of fruit print.
The waterwheel is a super fun addition to this house. It can be seen from the front or the back, and it just gives you that country feeling of fresh cool clean water. The wheel is 8 inches by 2 inches and rotates on a dowel rod. It was stained a nice deep chestnut tone. The man who created the waterwheel for me will be happy to make one for you.

I have really loved working on this house. It is a very cozy, charming, peaceful house in person. It quiets you and makes you feel comfortable moving your eyes through the rooms. It is elegant yet homey. You can almost smell the country air and fresh water....................
