Personal Style - Dollhouse Decor

Dec 21, 2007
The home is supposed to be a representation of one's taste and style. You take pride in what you buy for your home, making sure the furniture, curtains and decorations are exactly what you want. This is especially true when it comes time to decorate for a holiday.

But for individuals who enjoy building and collecting dollhouses or miniatures, adding flare opens up a whole new library of ideas. And it makes perfect sense too. If you are going to put as much pride in a large-scale version of your home, why not do the same for the smaller replica? No one ever claimed dollhouses had to fit a specific mold, right?

Decorating a dollhouse for a specific holiday is not difficult to do. There are kits widely available that can help you accomplish your goal. If your dollhouse or miniature resembles a particular period in history, such as the Victorian Era, you can find decorations that will go along with the décor of the home. Just by surfing the Internet, one can purchase kits for Halloween, Easter or even Christmas.

Perhaps the Internet is not your favorite way of shopping for items to put in your dollhouse. If you enjoy seeing and touching dollhouse decorations, you can easily find kits and accessories at specialty shops, antique stores or local craft stores. Even hitting garage sales and estate sales can turn up some beautiful and timeless pieces to add to your décor.

Because manufacturers make an endless array of dollhouse decorations and accessories, you need to have a good idea of what you want to accomplish before you start buying. Depending on what you need, there may be the chance you could save a little money and make decorations from left-over materials you used for your own home. All you need is some glue, a little paint and a lot of patience to make beautiful re-creations for your dollhouse.

If you want to get into more intricate detail, a kit would be a better choice for you. These kits can help you make a dollhouse or miniature resemble your own home down to the packages under the tree. For example, if you are looking into holiday decorations, you can buy Christmas trees with tiny lights, stockings that let you write family names on them and miniature packages with personalized name tags. In fact, decorating dollhouses for various holidays has become so popular that avid collectors even enjoy re-creating their own village or town.

One thing to keep in mind when you are decorating your dollhouse or miniature is to keep the décor personal. The possibilities are endless, and all a person needs to do is use a little creativity and imagination. You want people to pick up on your own style, just as they do for your real home. Personalization is easy to achieve, especially with all the choices you have in miniature accessories. Friends and family will enjoy seeing all your hard work and effort turned into a beautiful display.
