Williamsburg Style

I was really inspired by the interior decorating style found at the Williamsburg Lodge, so it was a picture taking opportunity every 10 steps. Below are a sampling of the Williamsburg style for real life or dollhouse miniature decorating.

Floral arrangement/centerpiece when you first enter the Lodge.

Williamsburg Lodge

I attended my first IGMA Guild School ever at Williamsburg this past January 2013. Classes for the Williamsburg IGMA Guild School are held yearly in January. Classes and special room rates are provided to attendees at the Williamsburg Lodge. The Lodge is a WONDERFUL place to stay at. Every 10 steps throughout the Lodge is a photo opportunity. Below are some pics inside the Lodge.


This is a typical room found at the Lodge with two queen sized beds, but you can also request a king size bed. Mattresses are FIRM to EXTRA FIRM. My room came with a digital thermostat so you can set to the room temperature to your liking. There is a FLAT SCREEN TV with satellite cable. A small little SAFE is also available in the room for your valuables. The theme and furniture style throughout the Lodge is Williamsburg all the way with art work and knick knacks based on their collection. I would characterize the Lodge as : classy, easy elegance, high quality.


This is the bathroom. Black granite countertops. There is a Keurig coffeemaker in the bath so you can brew your own coffee or tea at no additional charge. The shower head is just so-so (ie. not spa-like), but everything is immaculately clean and the water temperature is responsive to the knob dial controls.

Dollhouse scale woven miniature rugs. Art work hung in the bathroom.
More art work found in my room.

Real Life Victorian Style

Victorian seems to be the most popular and prevalent style of dollhouse miniature decorating. I must have been a Victorian in a previous life--my taste in dollhouse decorating runs to the ornate, gilded, and overly decorated, ie Victorian . Following are pics of the Castle Inn Riverside in Wichita KS, which has Victorian style furnishings for inspiration.

The parlor at The Castle Inn Riverside is filled with color and mahogony woodwork throughout. The castle is up for sale and soon to be auctioned to the highest bidder on Dec. 18. Built in 1888 by cattleman Burton Campbell, the stone mansion has through the years been nicknamed the ÒJewel on the River.Ó The stately castle has a three-story stone tower with carved gargoyles and a two-story, 2,000-square-foot carriage house. (December 12, 2012)

This walnut fireplace is in the dining room of The Castle Inn Riverside is from Germany. The chandelier is not original to the castle but is an antique imported from Spain. (December 12, 2012)

The Castle Inn Riverside was built in 1888 by cattleman Burton Campbell one of WichitaÕs wealthiest residents, and he spared no expense in building the $90,000 castle.(December 12, 2012)

Notable Dollhouse Galleries

My all time favorite Dollhouse, actually a set of roomboxes, are the Thorne Rooms housed at the Art Instistute of Chicago in the basement. These have really stood the test of time and look as great now as they did when they first debuted.

I am so excited about this new vendor. Not my own discovery. Elly from Amsterdam posted this link through minis4all.

They sell QUARTER SCALE FURNITURE at extremely reasonable prices. This is 3D PRINTING, not laser cutters. Items are resin/plastic, so you just have to paint or can glue on the fabric of choice. Being plastic/resin, they are DURABLE and will not break on you like handling wood.

I ordered just about every QS furniture item from them and received free shipping to boot.
