I realized I still had not shown photos of the rest of our dollhouse! I'll get the whole thing photographed one day. Last night I was showing the collection in this simple, peaceful new bedroom to Amy, 'cause I knew she'd dig them. And then I thought: "I should really blog about these".
Here is our new bedroom. And many, many silhouettes:
It's a really small room with very slanted ceilings, so it's pretty much just got the bed + nightstands in it. I think I like it that way.
If you're wondering what the weird "bucket" thingie is on my side of the bed (the left), it's a receptacle that is meant to hold fireplace wood. I keep my books in it, so they aren't strewn about the floor so badly.
I really wanted this room to be a little less child-like than our last bedroom, so I kept it spare, but with what I like to think are grown-up goth touches. Like the goth plaster deer. The pretty Victorian ladies pillow is from this rad Etsy shop.
I wanted to do a cluster of silhouettes in this room. I can't claim that I invented this idea, because although I thought that the idea had just sprung into my mind when I started work on it, it later came back to me that I think I saw this in Blueprint (RIP). I collected all these silhouettes from thrifting and Ebay-ing. I only wanted silhouettes that seemed to be of actual people (not the decorative, idealized kind), and I have some real gems.
This shows you two of my favorites, the pipe man and the cro-magnon-browed little girl in the wooden frame to his left.
