More rooms to shrink. (I have three posts today, so please scroll down)

Here are some more potential rooms for shrinking in response to "My Mini Mod Pod's" challenge.

A peaceful room in which to think and read, or just stare at the fire (I think a painted, plastic sauce bottle with a tea light insert would work for the fireplace) (ever hear an interior designer say that?)

I love the simple elegance of these rooms (and I happen to own a miniature Barcelona Bench).

Notice that the sofas in this photo seem to have a wave-like quality; and who would believe that a wall mural of rocks could be so beautiful and dramatic? Recreating this room in miniature would be quite an exciting challenge.

Here's another room with a beautiful picture of rocks! Hmm, this picture, since it has water, may go better with the wave-like sofas. The lights, together with the rock picture, bring the room to life.

The use of navy and red in this room is very appealing (and the lights could be made with fimo or plastic pens, cut down and painted).

This room appears in the 1956 Better Homes and Gardens Decorating Book. The use of color blocks is very much like the work of Piet Mondrian, a Dutch painter who was part of the DeStijl movement.

Here is one of Mondrian's paintings:

I think that a sleek bar, with interesting stools, adds elegance to a kitchen, and, if done well, can transform a dollhouse from a toy to a well-designed miniature house:

Although I am not a big fan of purple, the use of light, art, the zebra coffee table and rug, and the Mid-Century Modern lamp, makes this room interesting, warm and inviting.

On Friday, I will show you which room I "shrunk."

Thank you for reading my blog! There are two more, new, posts below.

Wishing you only good things, Neen


  1. Hi Neen! I can't wait to see which one you shrunk, they all look kinda tricky. LOL re the shrinking sauce bottle/tealight!

  2. I know, and after looking at so many minis, I can't help but see a mini in everyday things! That's not a bottle cap, it's an art deco lampshade. . .

  3. I love the style of rooms you've kinda girl =0)

    It's fun to recreate all the elements in the pictures. Looking forward to seeing more of your ideas

  4. Thanks, I love avant garde furniture and decor, and I love your blog!

  5. I love all of these rooms...small or large!

  6. I know, it was hard to choose!
