I got the emerson (the lighter version) for $99 on a closeout. Brand new, in box. It was a deal. I'm glad I didn't spend more than that - as fun and intersting as it is - these are heavy houses with some paper and particle board mixed into the design - they can get dinged up easily. But they are lovely and different.

I thought those were really cool (obviously as my tastes run more modern) but a bit pricey.  Are you turning modern....are going to the dark side? :batman: 

looks like it listed for about $350 new and a website had it for $285 before it sold out.   You are becoming quite the collector of houses.

Weren't the Brinca Dada houses originally issued in parts?  I understood it could take quite a while to work through a subscription to get all the parts to complete one of their houses.

Modern, Vintage, Antique.. I'm an equal opportunity dollhouse collector.. lol.. And I like a lot of different styles including Modern. :D

I don't know Holly.. I think they were kits.. not sure the company was around long.. so I'm not sure how many were made.

Good info thanks! I was going to change up the exterior finishes anyway so I'm not to worried about exterior papers. The one I'm looking at has been repainted so isn't original anyway. I was thinking on Egg carton stones for some of the feature walls.. I'm not a fan of one dimensional papers that are meant to simulate stone or wood.

      I planned on leaving the landing open to the downstairs but realism won out and I had to make it look usable aka safe. I made the banister to match the dining room divider.

      Bathroom tiles and flooring completed. I had to spend a lot of time making the existing door opening smaller to fit the odd sized handmade door I purchased at Miniatura. Just skirting and coving to go and this room is fully decorated ready for when I find the right fixtures.

      I need your assistance in picking a trim for my Chandelier shade upcycle.  
      After Carrie's comment on the last pic about contrast, I thought I'd try one more option.
      I think we might have a winner?...

      Trying out this light in the room... Not sure if I'll use it. I was just going to use a nondescript ceiling mounted fixture in this room. But the demanding little minx wants something more. 
      The room is still in dry fit so the left hand corner of the show will be grouted once the walls are glued together. As will the floor to wall junction. 
      Excuse the droopy shower rose, it's just propped in there like everything else in this room.
