Although doll houses are pretty and petite, designing them and choosing the right dollhouse accessories can be a bit of a challenge. On one hand, you’d like to be as realistic as possible and include as many features to reflect your taste and possibly your lifestyle. On the other hand, too much clutter can spoil the whole look of the doll house. So it’s essential to maintain a fine balance between the two while choosing doll house accessories.
Not all of us can afford to collect dollhouses, so if you’re creating one, plan well in advance so that you eventually make something you’d really like to keep for a long time.
Everyday household items like shopping bags, newspapers, china, luggage, glasses, trays, and tea sets are a few doll house accessories that might seem essential. There are plenty of unused items lying around the house than can be converted into something useful for the doll house, alternately online shops and retail stores sell plenty of collectables for your miniature needs.
If you love artwork or perhaps the doll house residents love it, choose a nice oil painting in the right scale and it could add a touch of class to the interior.
Certain dollhouse accessories such as wallpaper and floral prints are not preferred by some, in such cases choose a pastel colored wall and put up a miniature painting that defines the theme of the doll house.
Basic paintings are suitable for a simple, conventional doll house, but for more contemporary ones, choose abstract artwork that fits in with the overall design of this mini house. Other doll house accessories that could brighten up the wall include traditional Chinese scriptures, oriental paintings, animals, landscapes, and even ships. A well-accessorized dollhouse could easy give any interior designer a run for their money, so put on your creative caps and get started.
