The Glenview Drive Blue Victorian Dollhouse

The Glenview Dr. Victorian Dollhouse

 This is the second custom design dollhouse this year. Taking things I love from houses I have made over the years and adding fun features I enjoy having. I always love lots of extra windows and doors, you all know that. Balconies are my next favorite feature! I think after living in Key West experiencing so many, that the feeling to step out and just pause to look into the distance, or even down to the garden is lovely. So this house has first story porches, second story balconies, and third story walk outs. I also have thought separate Kitchen doors were very fun.
   The color pallet for this house came from a real historic house I saw for sale in Texas. The siding is a mid tone blue, with crisp white trim.  accent colors are a pale blue, and marine blue.
 





The sun flowers were added after I finished the rest of the florals. sun flowers just look so happy, and that pop of goldish yellow was a nice standout to all the blue.























Let's look inside

















 










This view shows the small foyer space as you open the door. I tried to define it a bit by using a different 
floor pattern. 







Back outside to the florals




















Once again making hydrangeas with Bunka fiber was a success. This time using blues.

Hello, I was wondering if I could ask do you make your own fretwork or where do you source it from. Love the details.

I'm so amazed at your brilliance of color and perfect attention to detail I have seen I think all your homes expect I'm sure a few and I didn't get to see your latest beautiful cottage I keep looking but have not seen your newest one yet I know you have others! I really love all the doors and windows you like and use I also love the separate back door coming off the kitchen I love a kitchen private little staircase in the kitchen! I have seen some beautiful doll houses but I cant think of one where there was a staircase in the kitchen but the main case the other part of house. does this sound strange? ha! ha! I know if anyone could do this right it would be you so maybe you might keep it in mind if you ever do this style of home I would love it from you ! thanks............oh! also I'm in love with your French house it had the most beautiful art work and balconies I even loved the lamb in the front yard it really gives me the feel of being somewhere far away and in a hautingly romantic villa barefoot and drinking wine waiting on my lover! ha1 HA1!!!!! well!! thanks again for sharing you talent........................Melissa
