I have been out of action due to a family member's serious illness, and I have really missed blogging, and reading your blogs. I hope to be able to post new blogs every week or so, including blogs about my entry into the Undersized Urbanite Dollhouse Contest of 2014. This is a wonderful contest that I participated in earlier this year (click here to view my posts on the contest). The Amazing Christina, with her blog, The Little Victorian, did a fabulous job with the first contest, and the second contest details are even more spectacular! Click here to read all about this contest.
My entry in the last contest was an Art Deco House fashioned from a 1930s vintage radio cabinet.
The house has been changed a little; here it is after a recent party held by its residents:
(The bar and champagne glass stool are new, and there have been some changes to the furniture.)
I went back in time by almost a century for my last entry, and in this entry I will be tackling something that may be built a century in the future. Those of you who have followed my blog for the past twenty months or so, know that I love cutting edge modernism whether that cutting edge was in 1920 or 1960. For example in Future Perfect, I featured these pictures:
My fascination with cutting edge futurism is very much connected with my love of astronomy and a hope that someday we will be able to explore outer space. So, where I am going with this? I intend to build a cocktail lounge, with an attached small house, and the design will be a guess at architecture and interior design 100 years from now, perhaps in this Undersized Urbanite environment:
Or this one
My entry, of course, is not built yet. I have a few kits to bash, and some wood and plexiglass. My blogs (which will be tagged at the contest website-or vice versa) will depict my progress.
Here are a few photos I took as I was trying to plan my future cocktail lounge, they are not much, but they do show the direction I am heading (the scale here is 1:16, and I intend to keep the project in this scale):
Wishing you only good things, Neen
