My Sage & Gold Victorian Cottage

I finished my latest Sage & Gold Victorian Cottage. This is a product of my recent experiments with fabric covered walls. I found this lovely printed calico cotton fabric to line the walls and the attic. The sage green is a perfect complement to the print. Golden scrap-booking stickers add interesting details to the green painted walls. Silk ribbons in sage and cream are inexpensive and easy solutions to chair rail molding and crown molding.

The outside is painted in garnet and wine red, with crisp white door and window casings that stand out. The mahogany stained roof matches the stained mahogany floor inside. I found the cutest golden door knobs with key-holes for both the front and the interior doors. Hand drawn golden details and faux ruby rhinestones on the window shutters add just the right touch of elegance to finish this quaint Victorian cottage!

This dollhouse is on auction on eBay right now. Here is the link:

I hope this cottage becomes a Valentine's Day gift for someone special!

That is a neat looking dollhouse. I love the style and choise of the exterior. Wondering what scale this is?

This is 1:12 scale. It is the Victorian Cottage Jr. by Real Good Toys, one of my favorites because of its size and easy assembly! I sold her today and I am missing her already!
