Details: Product Description Anyone who has ever hankered after a country retreat in which to escape their cares and worries can have one, if only in 1/12 scale. In her superbly presented book Christine-Léa Frisoni explains how to make a beautiful miniature French country house. Dressed in an elegant style of faded grandeur, the dolls house is full of period features and exhibits plenty of vintage appeal. It will delight all those who love the shabby chic as well as appreciate the antique. Having made the dolls house, Christine-Léa explains how to build up the wall panels to provide deep recesses, fancy panelling and wall niches to add character-ideas that can be translated to any existing dolls house. Instructions to make a range of French-style furniture, fittings and even flowers are included: chairs, a folding screen, ornate light sconces, fireplaces, dressing tables, window dressing, right down to the kitchen sink! All these are items that can be added to your own dolls house. The book includes examples of other miniature rooms guaranteed to delight the reader, even those not disposed to DIY. And if thats not enough, there is a gallery of dolls houses at the end of the book to inspire. Many of the dolls houses, like the one Christine-Léa builds here, have a fixed front and open back. We view interiors as tiny microcosms of perfect worlds. Who wouldnt want to live here?
