Doll House Furniture Function

Doll House Furniture Function

Apr 28, 2008

Really small is really cool. One of the most adorable displays we've ever seen was a doll house bathtub nestled in a flower box. The effect was magical and we felt like the tiny garden gnome might return at any moment for his bath.

Our re-creation here, with a washing machine (and some sad photo manipulation), doesn't feel quite so childlike but the small scale still makes us laugh.

Want some ideas on how to actually use (and not just display) miniatures at home...?

We're not entirely sure all these ideas would work but it's as fun as playing dress-up to think of the possibilities:

• A four poster bed as a mail/keys drop spot
• Tea lights in mix 'n' matched chairs to light an outdoor party
Cheval mirror near entry for quick lipstick touch-ups
Fridge on desktop to hold business cards and post-it note alerts
Area rugs as coasters

Our craziest idea:
• Make a life-size kitchen back splash by sealing sheets of hard wood flooring

Our favorite:
• Keep toothbrushes or shavers in a shower stall
