In this comprehensive manual Jessica Ridley tells you everything you'll need to know to create a truly striking and creative doll's house in a wide variety of styles from American Country to Artist's Studio, Etruscan to Edwardian, Scottish Baronial to Scandinavian. Working on four facades and nineteen different rooms, she explains how to hand-paint eighteenth-century wallpaper, marbleize floors, wood-grain tables, gild picture-frames, upholster furniture, make miniature food, and much, much more. The step-by step instructions are clearly illustrated with more than 350 close-up full-colour photographs. Along the way, you will learn how to research authentic decor and how to stretch your powers of ingenuity by making the most of what is available: how, for example, to make chairs from pieces of champagne wire, a thatch roof from mop head, or medieval weapons from cocktail sticks. Both a practical manual and a beautifully illustrated sourcebook, The Decorated Doll's House offers ideas, instruction, and inspiration in a delightful introduction to the enchanting world of miniature interiors.
