You know how it is, life throws a wobbly at you, so you take a break from your hobby, you get back to it and all your ideas and inspiration has dried up! I've been thinking about my current dolls house projects and how I miss spending time on them, researching, gluing and imagining how they will turn out.
The one project that bothers me most is Hildred House.
The Big One I got a few Christmas' ago.
It was meant to be a joint project between my Mother and I. Well. That never happened!
And now I have this big gorgeous house, that I am in love with, but I have no inspiration for it.
Please take a peek at the images below.
When you see this house, what comes to mind?
I've had several ideas over the past two/three years but none that have screamed out at me. Mainly because the house has that ghastly middle stair case that I hate, hate, hate! I've inspected the house though, there is nothing I can do about that. It's solid.
I can live with it. I can deal with that small issue.
But what to do with it?
Potential ideas have been...
The typical Edwardian/Victorian/Georgian house
The Missouri Governor's Mansion
A French Town House, my inspiration taken from Un Petite Folie of course because her work is incredible!
a Grand Hotel of some kind
I am learning more towards the school, but in all honesty, I have no idea what rooms would be what and how I would decorate them. The outside of the school inspires me for the project, but the inside I feel nothing. :(
Please, I beg of you!, if anyone has any great ideas and some inspiration for this project please share with me!
But Not All Is Bad!!
While playing on this game called "Mirrors of Albion" on my iPad today, I found inspiration in the Confectionery shop. I thought to myself "wow, I would really like to create this as a project." and then realised I had the perfect property for it. The Bakery!! I'd take a photo of it's current state, but the truth is, I have actually lost it! I have no idea where I have put the bakery in my flat. I distinctly remember bringing it here, so it must be somewhere. Where, though... no idea!!
I was originally doing the bakery up as a Georgian bakery, but I've since lost interest in that theme. I really love French. I really love light, airy spaces. I really love the colour blue. I'm already really keen to get started!!
Here is an image of the confectionary shop from game play. Isn't it gorgeous?!
I'm going for a bath now to sink away the stress of being unable to find my bakery, and having no clue what to do with HH!
Looking forward to reading your suggestions!
