Most of you know that i have a thing for miniatures. Miniature horses, furniture, food, whatever…as long as it makes me feel like a giant i love it. And dollhouses? forget about it. It’s like two of my favorite things combined – home design and minis. Not new ones from toys r us, no way, i love the old victorian dollhouses or mid-century dollhouses where the chandeliers work, where there is bedding on the bed, where its obvious that every single thing was handmade, down to the fly swatter, pans and books. So you bet i was excited when i saw this bad boy in Salt Lake City last week:
Uh huh. It’s a mini replica of the Salt Lake Mormon temple. And its incredible. I’ve never been in the temple so i wasn’t sure what was happening in there, so that was obviously fascinating on its own. BUT, then you give me mini-murals, mini-vases, mini-wing-backs, mini-pulpits and i’m all yours. Someday when ‘Secrets’ has more time and budget i want to do a mini version of the room to show the client before its actually done. Instead of a super techy digital mockup that some shows do, i want to actually have mini-versions of all of the furniture, wallpaper, accessories built and installed in a mini room. And then i can keep them all, and have one room full of all my favorite work.
That won’t be weird at all.
Back to god’s dollhouse:
So cute. and beautiful. and perfectly done. I am godzilla.
I have no idea why my computer just did all those nnnjmmm’s, and for some reason i can’t erase them. so weird.
anyhoo. Yes, this mini-temple was awesome and i stared at it for a while. whilst eating a baby corn on the cob.
Gotta run. This week’s house has a lot of hilarious technical setbacks that is making this little stylist brain very tired. in a major way. not mini. but its gonna look rad. hopefully.
Oh and Friday is my first giveaway. Come back and find out what you could win. WINNING!!
