As most of you know I do love
the shabby chic style for a dollhouse.
But more than 10 years ago when I thought about
buying a doll house, I wanted a modern house.
I just could not find one in 1:12 scale at the fair that I went.
The only modern homes that I knew were the Lundby houses.
Eventually I decided to build a Victorian house with a friend of mine.
At the moment I moved to Greece that selfbuild dollhouse
was not finished and I also could not take it with me because
I did not have the space for that huge dollhouse!
Once I lived here, I lost interest in my dollhouse hobby
and the miniatures that I had collected in the Netherlands
were in the attic at my parents house all these years.
Two years ago my mother and I both collected
a Mediterranean Dollhouse (see older post)
I love that house very much because it has a unique style!
that house is now in the attic too because it's also too big
to be displayed in my tiny little house.
Last december I picked up my dollhouse and miniature hobby again
and ever since I was looking for a dollhouse that does fit in here!!!
And I finally decided to buy this kit...
Lake View is a modern house and is made by
Yes, I immediately bought the Garden Rooms also LOL
because together it was a good offer!
Besides I knew I would want to have more rooms later...
I did not order these kits directly in England but from
Anita's Poppenhuis in the Netherlands.
Because my uncle and aunt could bring it with them for me
(remember the giant thing I was talking about in this post).
And the second reason was that
I was a bit afraid if the postmen would not 'handle it with care'
it would arrive scathed after such a long journey!
Third reason... it saved me money too

So here are my plans so far:
The house will be a home for Aivie her niece.
The styling will be modern!
And I know there are a lot of different modern style interiors
I will choose a mix from all the things that I like!
I think it will turn out like the IKEA (Scandinavian) style...
With lots of pastel colors, but also bright colors!
You will see what my fantasy will come up with...
I already know the colors that I want to use in the rooms,
and which room is gonna be the kitchen, livingroom, bedroom etc...
