Miniaturists are gaining attention! This New York Times article mentions some of my favorites, like Phillip Nuveen.
So much vintage inspiration, I had to share this!
Please note: This post is reblogged.
My daughter found a great decorating book for me and I wanted to share it with you!
It has Home Decorating Tips from the 1970s and lots of great photos!
Home Decorating Tips:
- Imagination means more than dollars
- Buy dual purpose pieces like table-desks, sleep-sofa, storage cubes, etc.
- Buy moderately priced furniture and re-cover it to your liking
- Mix time periods
- Keep it simple and you can associate furniture with many different styles
- Don’t be afraid to mix and match
- A unifying theme can pull a room together
- Create a color scheme by painting furniture
- Remember to check thrift shops, auctions and rummage sales
- Look at a piece and think of what it could be, not just what it is now
Hope you enjoy the photos and find the tips helpful!

Bust magazine put together a list of Golden Girls inspired gifts. I want them all, particularly this amazing creation (a mini Golden Girls dollhouse!) by Etsy artist Alan of Everyday Miniatures.
Just like with a real house, decorating the Flip This (Mini) House project never ends. The living room, which I just highlighted earlier today, has gotten a make-under. The bubble chair has been swapped with the Eames lounge chair and ottoman from the house’s upstairs office. The fluffy white rug has been swapped out with a carpet from the house’s storage drawer. Ahhh! That’s better!
Much of the art, furniture, and accessories in the Flip This (Mini) House project are repurposed objects I found for next to nothing at garage sales and thrift stores, or that I created from materials from craft stores and hardware stores.
For the past few months, I’ve been holding off on revealing the Flip This (Mini) House project. Today’s the day I’m going to give you a closer look at some of the finished details, starting with the kitchen! Let me know what you think!
This doesn’t happen very often! Here’s a blog that’s so delightful that I’m sharing it on both Holly Recommends and Flip This (Mini) House. Thanks to my friend Janet for seeing this in the first place and recognizing how much full-size and mini-size inspiration I’d find in it.

I got together with my friend Janet a few days ago. You may remember her as the friend who found my original mini house at a flea market, back in the summer of 2014. It was just $35! She and her husband then brought it to me and the blog Flip This (Mini) House was born.
Well… She’s at it again. Here’s her latest find. This one I got for the low price of free. It’s in pretty bad shape, but, like my original project, I see a great deal of potential in it. I’m not really sure that I’m ready for another mini house flipping project just yet, but maybe when the snow begins to fall outside I’ll change my mind.
