I’m kind of obsessed with miniature things. It’s a new obsession. I think it started when I saw the Joseph LeDray exhibit that’s been traveling around the states. Anyways, the point is that there is something fascinating about objects rendered in teeny tiny scales. Mulvany & Rogers is know for their opulent dollhouses and their ability to make the miniature extraordinary.
Take, for example, this dollhouse version of the Palace of Versailles. It’s absolutely stunning, and much easier to take in than the original. All the details of the palace, including the carved golden chandelier, has been rendered in exquisitely minute detail. Plus, at around $30,000, it’s a lot less expensive than investing in the real thing.
Other designs include classic English Gothic manor homes, Georgian shops, and of course, custom work. These are the kind of dollhouses you’ll love even if you were never a Barbie girl. Or boy.
