Modern miniature The I house: Going Stainless

I solved my need for a modern house by buying a Imaginarium doll house.The lines are simple and the ceilings lofty and it won't fall down. I needed a bedroom, living room, kitchen, dining room and office. (because I had the furniture and wanted to play with it...)Then I could add a family room, but the dollhouse would have to  be large. More than a roombox.

The color scheme of the Imadinarium was not for me. (Fashion Dolls LOVE it!) But now that I (hacked it) spray painted it white and tan it needs some pop!
The roof and trim are silver. So I am thinking of going Stainless or galavnized steel which translates to miniatures as Tap Plastic pieces.


AND
I want this in miniature for the family room.
It is on Fab.com/ today.
Sale Ends in 2 days and 23 hours.

fire place design of Wall Flame Stainless
Designer
Michael Rösing Brand Radius Origin. I can make this in mini right?
How tempting to use a tea light?
and this was in today's Crate & Barrel Winter catalog. A table runner by Chilewich. I think Call of the Small and Mini Modern have used placemats. Wall paper? Flooring?  The funny thing is everything I do is gray. My plan was to devote October to the I House but my budget is running  low... Maybe a metallic Christmas tree? Hmmmm. CM
Update: for pictures of yesterday's earthquake damage to the I house go to http://Leftcoastmini.blogspot.com/ No 1/1 damage thank heavens! C

I bet you can make that fireplace. Just go to Lowes or Home Depot and buy a corner piece of aluminum. It should be near the electrical. Cut it down to size (I bet they will do it for you if yo ask). Then take a small piece of plexi and glue it upright and make a little fake fire. Just a thought...

Thanks Mad for Mod, that sounds like a plan! CM

Hi Kikka, I think they are perfect for California, but what about in snow areas, they are just decorative right? CM
