Making more room in your miniature dolls' house
6 May 2013
Have you ever wished your dolls’ house had an extra room to decorate?
Why not introduce a garden area
? With versatility offering everything from horticulture to architecture, you can create extra space for inspiration in an instant!
One popular method is to change your setting when summer turns to winter, to reflect the seasons in your full-scale world.
With a greenhouse, conservatory or pergola feature the world’s your oyster – and it’s so much easier than the real thing!
And there’s a wonderful collection of flowers and foliage to add from The Garden Centre
at The Dolls House Emporium.
You may wish to choose a theme for your greenery, or recreate a favourite garden you have seen in real life.
There’s no need to have your planting in neat rows – nature’s not tidy and it could give you a chance to be really creative, incorporating some items from everyday life, to make the garden look well-loved and well-used by its mini occupants!
Even if it’s a general sprucing up of your main property – we’ve a dozen or so window box ideas to get you started!
Or a low-maintenance patio terrace to add more furniture and décor for city living.
Add fruit, vegetables, old wellington boots and some garden tools for your rural project!
Try railings, balustrades or a gate for a more formal look or simply use a property extension for that extra space to create a music room or sun room.
Getting out in the garden’s just one tradition for May. Another is the age-old custom of dancing around the Maypole!
The tradition gathered pace in the Middle Ages and is still the focus of many celebrations even today. Schoolchildren weave in and out according to different routines to create intricate patterns on the pole.
