  1. I have been making modern miniature furniture for the past 25 years (I was one of the first to specialise in modern miniatures) and our company, ELF Miniatures, has clients all over the world. Yet we regularly get emails from people who have only just discovered our website....so I thought it might be an idea to share our URL for anyone who isn't familiar with what we do, but is interested in modern minis. You can find us here http://www.elfminiatures.co.uk/. I do custom orders, but also produce loads of kits, which are very popular too. We feature lots of our clients' photos of their finished rooms, some with our custom work, others with rooms they've created with our kits, so there's plenty to inspire as well! I've attached here just a couple of things we do which are very popular

    Added the fireplace accessories, the screen is the same design as the other bedroom ('Romantiek' by Arjen) and yet another set of tools by Phoenix, might seam a bit repetitive but it's 4 fireplaces and they all need to be 'accessorized' I'm not 100% happy with the fireplace earth... I've tried changing these so many times, making larger/smaller/thicker, and everytime just looks worse.. something I'll try again in the future perhaps, if I find a design that works better. I'm also thinking about changing that empire sofa in the corner for something else, maybe a clothes rack (I have a kit of mini hangers that would look cute if I manage to 'dress' them), or a small comode with a hatstand... something to add to the 'feminine' theme.
  3. This weekend I have finally completed my first dollhouse build! I'm quite happy with the way it turned out, some newbie mistakes along the way, a lot of hesitation and slow pace work but it was done. Took me around 9-10 months with a few long breaks in between, I had bought most of the building materials and the electrical components before starting. After a quick progress on the shell and interior I was a bit optimistic thinking I could maybe finish it before the end of 2016, but the exterior took a lot longer than I expected. I've learned a lot in the process, and hopefully this experience will help in my future builds I have built the 1:24 Fairfield with some modifications, nothing very drastic I think. I found plenty of helpful inspirational ideas from other members here, I'm very grateful to everyone who shared their tips and pictures of this house, it helped A LOT! Overal I think this is a great kit for a first build, my only serious struggle with the kit was the tower roof sub-assembly... the instructions were a bit confusing and the wood just didn't want to cooperate, but thanks to advice from others who had the same issue I was able to glue it together. With my modifications this house has a total of 12 interior rooms, porch and balcony. It's fully electrified with a roundwire 12v system, running through groves under the floor templates, the chimney sub assembly and under the stairs. To keep these areas accessible for repairs later I have modified the shelves from the kit (livingroom mid section and "pantry") to be removable, so they "slide" into the house structure to hide the electrical sections. Most of the ceillings and floors are templates, all floors are made of wood (tiles also), the embossed ceilings are a combination of foam, papper, gesso and paint. It's fun to look back on old sketches from when I was still planning this house and compare to the final result, you can tell I was being "very optimistic" about the size of these rooms, haha. Just random clumsy scribbles without even getting the kit out of the box and taking proper measurements, some of the ideas ended up materializing while others not so much. It was a really fun build, a bit sad it's over but hopefully I can start preparing for the next one! I will try to stick to "only 1 build at a time", plan as much as I can in advance and get the materials before I start building... I don't expect to start anytime soon, but here's a little teaser... and it's another Greenleaf kit I still feel a bit intimidated by the size of the box alone, I'm under no illusions this will take me under 1 year to build... more like 2 or 3 perhaps xD (hope not!) It's funny because this was going to be my first pick for a build, but after a bit of research I felt a bit discouraged and thought it would probably be best to play it safe... and stick to a size I'd be more confortable with. I don't regret my choice, I love the smaller scales but I think it's time to try the 1:12 league! Now off to plan the new house! ~

    The finishing touches... After going through several pictures of Victorian Houses for ideas I ended up doing something simple for the gables. Didn't want to overwhelm the house with too much "visual noise" and this option also seamed to fit well with the tower roof. Took me nearly the whole weekend to cut and paint all the little bits of wood but it's finally done!!!
