BIG BOOK OF THE DOLLS' HOUSE

JEAN NISBETT    Book Number: 82179    Product format: Paperback

Imagine how fantastic it would be to have exactly the kind of house you want, whether a thatched cottage, a modernist home or a stately mansion, and how wonderful it would be to be able to furnish the house with exactly the furniture that you love, whether antique carved wood or up-to-the-minute stylised chairs. Well, you can achieve all this without winning the lottery; all you need do is become one of the millions of people who own a dolls' house. This beautiful book takes you through everything you need to know, from choosing your house or making one from a kit, to the decoration and the furniture. Here you can learn how to thatch a roof, make a wood-topped coffee table, fit a fireplace or install skirting boards and cornices. There are sections on various eras and periods such as Traditional, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, complete with ideas for authentic furnishing and it's full of clever ideas and tips. Using both 1/12 and 1/24 scale, this incorporates practically any style of house that you can think of, and even explains how to create miniature gardens. Here you can also learn how to furnish a modern Tokyo apartment, a Bollywood-style room, a Turkish carpet emporium, a modern office, a Chinese restaurant, even a museum. If you feel you don't have the space for a doll's house, then maybe you could make and decorate a room box, or perhaps a vignette box to hang on the wall. For anyone who loves dolls' houses, or is interested in model making. Softback, 320pp. Colour photos and diagrams.
