This Renovated Dollhouse is Prettier Than Most Real Houses

A photo posted by @little.linzi on

In recent months, Aussie designer Linzi Macdonald has been renovating a 80 cm high by 80 cm long dollhouse for her daughter as if it were a real house, filling it with handmade miniature reproductions of the locally crafted designs found in her actual home. According to Inside Out, which just spotlighted the project, the dollhouse's wallpaper, coffee and dining tables, beds, rugs, sinks, and more have all been recreated with the help of some fabric glue, white spray paint, Sharpie pens, and materials either sourced by Macdonald herself or sent by other designers. And the result? Cozy, bright, and whimsical—just as we've come to expect from the best of interiors from Down Under.

Below, a few shots from Inside Out's feature. You can find more photos under the hashtag #maddiesdollhousereno on Instagram (a few examples are embedded below.)
