The Lilac House of April and Yvonne


This San Franciscan dollhouse is the first 12th scale dollhouse made by my friend Yvonne Moxon. I fell in love with this house when I saw this photo ~ the glowing warmth of the lights calling me inside! I have always loved the San Franciscan for the detailed grillwork and trims in the front.


Truth be told, my favorite part in the entire house is the bathroom! With the Victorian tub, gilt mirror above the sink, the gorgeous chandelier, and meticulous attention to details, it is a tempting haven of relaxation at the end of a busy dollhouse day!


I can never tire of the lights in this house. Each one is beautiful in its own rights, and appears to be specially picked for that room decor. Another personal favorite is the mosaic on the kitchen floor.

Very pretty house. I love the colors and the tile in your kitchen is wonderful. I would never have thought of these colors, but you have really used them well. Lilac is such a great color anyway, but it shows up so nice in your decorating.
