The First Steps to Creating a Wonderful Dollhouse Scene

Aug 8, 2008
There are surprising a number of people who collect dolls and thus dollhouses. The ages range from single digits to triple digits. This includes everyone from young daughters, even some sons, and grandparents who just never got out of the spirit of collecting. People of all shapes and sizes have a collection of dolls. What many folks desire to do with their collection is to show it off. Putting it out there on display means that one can share their dedication with others particularly those who appreciate the hobby. Even is someone is hiding their doll collection from the world, they have no doubt created some sort of eye pleasing display for their own amusement.

There are some folks out there who don't know how to begin picking or designing a dollhouse theme or scene. And for those this is what this guide is for. So first, let's begin with brainstorming. Yes, this was probably done in elementary school English and you hated it then as much as you hate it now but it is still one of the better ways of finding that perfect theme. Think about what kind of scenery is needed. Any trees, fences, or floral objects? Is it going to center around your fabulous dolls or that awesome dollhouse you've recently collected? Is there a story to be told? Maybe you want to capture the youthfulness of childhood, replicate a piece of art, or relive a fond memory. These are just some ways to get the ideas rolling for your theme.

One could also look at what others have done either in person or on the internet. Using the internet in general is a great way to come up with ideas. You can use it to look up pictures of yesteryear to model a design from. Talking to likeminded hobbyists through chats or forums is another great way to get ideas flowing. Looking at art or subjects that interest you over the internet has been known to spark ideas as well.

Another good suggestion is thinking about a period of time. Would you enjoy a theme with more modern housing and clothing? Maybe you prefer the look and feel of a Victorian home over a modern one. That is just one more idea for you to consider.

These are just some general suggestions for a dollhouse theme. I'm sure you'll be better at coming up with some on your own that are better suited to your desires. I'll have more dollhouse scene articles coming in the future until then get brainstorming.
