Tiny Bedroom Interior: Five

In October/November 2022 I took a class at the Smithsonian called Build a Tiny Interior, taught by Marcie Wolf-Hubbard. Yes, it’s an offshoot of a class I have taken a couple of times before taught by the same artist – Build a Tiny House!, and you have seen examples of my Tiny House work here on the blog.

As I have mentioned before, I have always loved dollhouses and as a child spent a lot of time building my own mini homes in various materials. Now so many years later, I am rediscovering this path with great pleasure.

In a short series of posts I will tell you about my Tiny Interior project.

Now the finale: here is the whole room and its furnishings.

You can see how I trimmed the box so that the room didn’t feel too high or narrow and yet would show off the furnishings. I think it worked out well.

I am also happy that the room does not feel too crowded even with all the items in it. I am glad that I waited to trim the box until I was sure of the furniture sizes.

I purposefully did not make any more accessories for the room. My granddaughter is still very young and I wanted to think of safety, so I avoided creating small versions of stuffed animals, for example. Everything here is sturdy and too big to swallow. Also, I figured she would add her own toys, dolls, etc. to the room, as she likes. After all, it’s her room!

I would be happy to answer questions about any aspect of how I made this Tiny Interior. And I hope you will consider trying something like this yourself. It really is a lot of fun.

OK, let’s look!

All right, that is it for the Tiny Bedroom Interior. Thanks for following along with me. I loved doing this project. It was a way for me to send good feelings to her from me and my husband, as grandparents.

So I will end with this idea: Sweet Dreams!

      I have been saying that all my life as I gazed into whatever miniature world I was creating or playing with. I even remember thinking it about the little boats we made and put in the creek, I could almost feel how it would be to see the grass rushing by and so on.

      Thank you. It was so much fun. I love making Tiny Houses and this one was even better since it had an inspiration for the actual structure and also hoping she would like to play with it. I find it very calming to make these little environments.

      I think that is what has spurred me on in continuing to create mini worlds since childhood, and play with dolls (my adult version being “I am making figurines”) because I imagine being right in there myself.

      Ever since I was little I have had dollhouses or mini environments around, and in each one, I say the same thing! I also used to like to read books about tiny beings (such as The Borrowers).
