Dollhouse as ART


So I decided to display the remodeled Triang facade. It was a duplicate and ruined so I experimented with it.
After removing the paint I sprayed it galvanized grey. I really didn't need another house ( I have two other functioning Triangs) but love it's lines so I decided to make an arrangement on my bedroom wall.




I chose four items to make the arrangement.
With the Triang I framed a Tootsietoy add from the 1920's,
and framed the direction's Wes sent with the WesDesigns
Modern House 1 (MH1).
Yes there was a beautifully illustrated letter from Wes that came with the house. I should have noticed the placement of the chimney. The letter is a work of art itself!





Two of my favorite chairs,




The dollhouse add from the 1920's. (Six rooms for $3.00!)
I'm really happy with the way it came out and it is just another way to live with dollhouse pieces you love.
In my opinion it IS art. CM

I think it all looks great! I have a metal triang front from the 50's so could do something along similar lines with it.. Lizzie

So modern and sophisticated, a display suitable for an art gallery!
A wonderful way to display vintage miniatures with a modern touch.

Brilliant! Love it! With as many houses as you have I would guess wall space is the only the space left. :P
It really does look great. Very cool idea and pairings.
