The Runaway Room in Sea View

Hello everyone,

Today I will be sharing with you the last room of my Sea View dolls house. This room is situated on top of the bedroom. I have turned this room in a recreational section where one can escape from everything or everyone to relax, read a book, hear music, browse the internet or spy outside. Most of the furniture I had purchased from Elf. The books, box files, CDs, magazines and paper folders have been done me.

I hope you have enjoyed this house. I just can't believe that I actually made a modern dolls house. I had enjoyed doing it so much that I really hope to do another.

Well this is it. Please do keep tuned for more of my projects.

Take Care

Sea View - Part 3

Hi Folks,

Hope you are all feeling fine. I think I'm getting back my mojo for miniatures. Haven't done much but it's definitely a start.

Today I will be sharing with you the third floor of my Sea View dolls house. Here you will find the main bed room and bathroom.
The Main Bedroom

The main bedroom's door leading to bathroom
I had done some modifications to the wall between the bedroom and the bathroom as the opening was to wide and as I was having a bathroom I wanted some privacy. I have also added a door which I modified myself too. Instead of leaving the door in a classical way. I removed most of the wood and added frosted plastic to give it a modern look. Most of the furniture in this room is from the Dolls House Emporium. I have elevated the bed with a split level which I edged with mirror plastic. I have also made a modern mirror decoration on top of the bed. The bedding for the bed was sewn by myself.

I have made a modern sculpture out of clay and added to this room. I have beaded some silver wiring and added like a floral decoration for the vase of the dresser.  I'm quite pleased with the outcome of this room. Too bad that I don't live in it. I have added some of the same carpeting on the stair case.

Another thing that I wanted to point out that the spiral staircase through out the house didn't have a handrail. So very patiently I had cut some perspex in small rectangles and stuck them to each stair to form a whole glass handrail.

Entrance to the bathroom

The bathroom was my nightmare. I like spacious bathrooms and to my dismay for this house the bathroom was small. To make things worse I realized that the floor of the bathroom was very low and once the door seemed to be up in the air. I was trying to imagine myself going in the bathroom and the only thing that came to my mind was me falling face down. So I created a few step and a split level with the same carpeting from the bedroom. Then another problem cropped up as the split level took quite some space and I was trying to make a shower and a bathtub in this little bathroom. Once again thanks to Elizabeth from ELF she helped me choose the right accessories for the bathroom.

Split level leading to vanity and shower

I have designed most of the bathroom and added rice bulbs in the vanity section and shower. It was very difficult to see where to put the vanity, toilet and the bath but I think finally I got it right. The vanity was something that I totally built (which means that there was no kit for it). I found a Grecian vase that fitted this room perfectly as the tiles of the bathroom are mosaic. I have made most of the bottled perfumes and soaps myself with beads.  It reminds me a lot of a Roman Bath.

I think the bathroom is my favorite room of this dolls house. I hope you all like it as much as I do.

Well this is all for today. I wish you all a very Happy Easter. Keep tuned for more.
