Even Adults Would Love These 30 Amazing Dollhouses

When you were little, did you play with a dollhouse that just wasn’t everything you dreamed it would be? So maybe you took cardboard and construction paper and made additions. Maybe you found Christmas lights, wrapped them in tulle to create an ethereal or underwater effect for your mermaids and mermen. Or maybe you converted an old tree trunk and made a Middle Earth worthy hobbit home.

Wherever your imagination took you as a child, now that you are older, maybe it’s time to reclaim that imagination.

And now that you live in an internet connected world that allows you not only to see the wild creations of others, but offers also step-by-step instructions, how to videos, and niche stores supplying amazing miniatures to complete and compliment your one of a kind dream home, you can do almost ANYTHING!

Whatever your taste is, take a look at these 30 thoughtful and AMAZING doll’s houses! And let the world of miniatures engulf you once again.

1. Shabby Chic Simple

Who says all dollhouses have to be pink?! Maybe you live in boxy modern efficiency but are dreaming about white lace and roses on a mossy shoal somewhere. With this charming cottage from Cinderella Moments by Caroline Dupuis, you can welcome this breath of fresh air on a window ledge or side table and dwell in possibilities.

    2. A Different Sort of Tree House

    Starting from scratch might mean just taking a walk in the woods. A tree stump might just be laying around begging for a second life as a mouse dollhouse. This house by Maddie Brindley can be found complete with instructions at Mad’s Mouse House on WordPress with more information about the craftsman.

      3. Striking the right note

      One person’s junk is another person’s treasure-to-be! A warped or broken guitar can be the home of fanciful play again. Take a look at Fairy Meadow Miniatures’ guitar dollhouse. For pictures of the work in progress, check out their website.

        4. A Grounded Type of Dollhouse

        You knew with a reference to J.R. R. Tolkiens’ Middle Earth that I was going to have one Hobbit House. And here it is! You don’t have to fly to New Zealand, but it could take a year to build one just like Maddie Chambers. For more incredible inside pictures, visit Mads Hobbit Hole on wordpress.

          5. So you feel like turning Japanese . . .

          Like the 80s English band, The Vapors, you might feel like turning Japanese, but of course you can’t. You might not be able to move to Japan or even buy sushi where you live. But you could have your own amazing miniature Japanese doll house! This one is sold as a kit from Billy, a Japanese dollhouse company.

            6. Dreams of being a gypsy

            Maybe your dreams are of roaming the European countryside as rambling gypsy. With the advent of laser cutting printers, dollhouses can come in any shape or size, like the 8″ caravan from Michelle’s Miniatures.

              7. Maybe more mod!

              Your style might be more retro or just rainbow if you love Love LOVE this stylish gym. This Kaleidoscope home can only be found on Ebay or Craigslist for the time being, but what a special dollhouse it would be!

                8. A mini-modernist on your hands

                The opposite of a Victoria doll house that was the idol of my youth is this mini-modern masterpiece. Called the Bennet House on many websites, the secondary market might be the only place it exists anymore!

                  8. Real Retro

                  If you don’t mind searching the globe and the timeline, you might find this, the Plattenbau-Hochhaus from 1966. Talk about a charmer! But how could you dare play with this one!

                    9. Castle estate, take me away!

                    If capturing another century versus a decade is your thing, and you always felt you would be suited for the royal treatment, then this laser cut castle doll house is your thing. I couldn’t find the kit for sale, but it might be possible to find a video with the step-by-step laser saw demonstration. One can dream and wish upon a star I suppose!

                      10. True Royalty Only

                      Maybe you could be a billionaire these days and get something comparable to the exact dollhouse of Queen Mary which was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1924. This picture is of the house’s moving day in 1924. If you want to see the castle in person, you’ll need to plan a trip to Windsor Castle. I think it might be worth it.

                        11. Very Victorian

                          12. Something That Could Be From Lemony Snickets

                          Victorian doll houses with or without extensive gingerbread detail can call out to you even from childhood classic books and movies, like Lemony Snickets or James and the Giant Peach. The coffee stain aging is just inspired.

                            12. Maybe something more grown-up from Tim Burton

                            Maybe scary really is your thing or you just have a dark side, Tim Burton style? Well, the internet is populated with amazing doll houses that fit that bill! Here is one that is very Beetle Juice.

                              13. Very haunted memories

                              If that wasn’t scary enough, this won’t be either, because the charming house from Amityville seduces it’s victims into feeling like they are in an ideal New England farmhouse, right before all things go terribly, terribly wrong. What a beauty of movie memorabilia or fan art.

                                14. Not to be play with….ever…

                                Some dollhouses do not ask to be played with, like this one that has been described as the Tim Burton Dollhouse. It looks like the place where Edward Scissorhands might reside. It seems also to scream RUN THE OTHER WAY!

                                  15. Have you heard of Rob Heard?

                                  Rob Heard’s sculptures are dollhouses elevated to gravity defying art! I don’t know if there is any child in the world lucky enough to play within one of these masterpieces, but if so, they are fantastically fortunate. Did I say gravity defying?!

                                    16. Buying a boutique of miniatures

                                      17. A dollhouse right out of a book

                                      Some dollhouses are made right out of books, literally! If you crack open one of these, you’ll find teeny, tiny, itty, bitty books even inside. You might even need a magnifying glass to enjoy all the details.

                                            20. Blow your own horn

                                            For centuries shells and horns were made into, well, horns, but how many have been made into a fairy house? This slightly creepy fantasy creation is still amazing.

                                              21. So simple, a child could assemble ANY WAY THEY WANT!

                                              When I came upon her website, I got a little excited. Because not only are the houses attractive, but pieces can be traded out and interlocked. This is a city of Lille. For more, go check out Lille Hussets House..

                                                Maybe you have so many dolls you don’t know what to do, so you might need this shoe, or rather, boot house. There are dozens of styles online, and wouldn’t it be a fun challenge to turn a boot into a house for little dolls.

                                                  22. 3-2-1 LIFT OFF!!

                                                  I looked and looked and finally found, a ROCKET SHIP DOLL HOUSE!!! I’m not even sure how on earth I found this out of this world creation, but I know I was disappointed to find that it seems to out of stock. But why not make one from scratch? Who says a dollhouse has to be a house?! Maybe we need to build some space station houses.

                                                    23. Repurposefull

                                                    It’s not a word, repurposefull, but this isn’t a dollhouse anymore either. A reversal of the theme of taking other things and making them into dollhouses, this is a dollhouse turned into shelving space in a laundry room. Kind of makes me sad.

                                                      There were no quirky self-made dollhouses that were also cruise ships, but I have to include the Barbie or Glamour Gal cruise ships because they are sometimes bigger than the dream houses. Some are bigger than children’s bookcases. Although all plastic, they are fabulous, and I miss mine!

                                                        I hadn’t thought about it, but recreating an artist’s studio would be amazing. Take a look at Frida’s!  The details include prints of her own artwork as well as a miniature Frida in her iconic pose.

                                                          This Voodoo House by Laura Denison is a rich beauty. Instead of scary, it is just charming. For more of her creations you can check out her at G 45 Papers on Typepad. The layering and texture of color and patterns are a feast for the eyes. The little lamps and chandeliers are adorable. Wait!  Is that a skull on the floor…?!

                                                            27. Green with envy

                                                            This dollhouse seems to rise right out of a coffee table, and not a small one either. It is a rich green with lots of detail. My legs get tired just looking at the winding staircase the dolls would have to climb.

This Planstoy Green Dollhouse is even supplied with recycle bins for all sorts of materials. Talk about raising the next generation to love their mother earth!

                                                                  I had to pick a stopping point, so the Old House In Paris is it. I own one of these houses and have many of the dolls and furnishings. The book was a favorite from childhood. The movies j’adore! I love that spunky sprite Madeline. So when I came across this dollhouse sitting in a consignment store, I was stunned. They do not sell these in the United States, so I had not seen or heard of them. And I’m an adult and have long stopped watching Madeline’s adventures.

                                                                  But because I had started reading the books to my daughter, I couldn’t resist bringing this dollhouse into my home with as many of Madeline’s friends as I could find on Ebay! I think I might enjoy it more than my kid, and I do get excited when I find an item here or there. The doorbell works. The lantern lights up. I can get plenty of accessories. And I even have Miss Clavel. And one day I’ll get Genevieve the dog!  ….FOR MY GRANDCHILDREN….of course!

                                                                    Why You Suffer from Constant Fatigue and How to Deal with It

                                                                    Why You Suffer from Constant Fatigue and How to Deal with It

                                                                    With our busy, always on lives, it seems that more and more of us are facing constant tiredness and fatigue on a regular basis.

                                                                    For many people, they just take this in their stride as part of modern life, but for others the impact can be crippling and can have a serious effect on their sense of wellbeing, health and productivity.

                                                                    In this article, I’ll share some of the most common causes of constant tiredness and fatigue and give you some guidance and action steps you can take to overcome some of the symptoms of fatigue.

                                                                    Why Am I Feeling Fatigued?

                                                                    Fatigue is extreme tiredness resulting from mental or physical exertion or illness.  It is a reduction in the efficiency of a muscle or organ after prolonged activity.[1]

                                                                    It can affect anyone, and most adults will experience fatigue at some point in their life. 

                                                                    For many people, fatigue is caused by a combination of lifestyle, social, psychological and general wellbeing issues rather than an underlying medical condition.

                                                                    Although fatigue is sometimes described as tiredness, it is different to just feeling tired or sleepy. Everyone feels tired at some point, but this is usually resolved with a nap or a few nights of good sleep. Someone who is sleepy may also feel temporarily refreshed after exercising. If you are getting enough sleep, good nutrition and exercising regularly but still find it hard to perform, concentrate or be motivated at your normal levels, you may be experiencing a level of fatigue that needs further investigation.

                                                                    Fatigue can cause a vast range of physical, mental and emotional symptoms including:

                                                                    • chronic tiredness, exhaustion or sleepiness
                                                                    • mental blocks
                                                                    • lack of motivation
                                                                    • headache
                                                                    • dizziness
                                                                    • muscle weakness
                                                                    • slowed reflexes and responses
                                                                    • impaired decision-making and judgement
                                                                    • moodiness, such as irritability
                                                                    • impaired hand-to-eye coordination
                                                                    • reduced immune system function
                                                                    • blurry vision
                                                                    • short-term memory problems
                                                                    • poor concentration
                                                                    • reduced ability to pay attention to the situation at hand

                                                                    Causes of Fatigue

                                                                    The wide range of causes that can trigger fatigue include:

                                                                    • Medical causes: Constant exhaustion, tiredness and fatigue may be a sign of an underlying illness, such as a thyroid disorder, heart disease, anemia or diabetes.
                                                                    • Lifestyle-related causes: Being overweight and a lack of regular exercise can lead to feelings of fatigue.  Lack of sleep and overcommitting can also create feelings of excessive tiredness and fatigue.
                                                                    • Workplace-related causes: Workplace and financial stress in a variety of forms can lead to feelings of fatigue.
                                                                    • Emotional concerns and stress: Fatigue is a common symptom of mental health problems, such as depression and grief, and may be accompanied by other signs and symptoms, including irritability and lack of motivation.

                                                                    Fatigue can also be caused by a number of factors working in combination.

                                                                    Medical Causes of Fatigue

                                                                    If you have made lifestyle changes to increase your energy and still feel exhausted and fatigued, it may be time to seek guidance from your doctor.

                                                                    Here are a few examples of illnesses that can cause ongoing fatigue. Seek medical advice if you suspect you have a health problem:

                                                                    Anemia

                                                                    Anemia is a condition in which you don’t have enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to the body’s tissues. It is a common cause of fatigue in women.

                                                                    Having anemia may make you feel tired and weak.

                                                                    There are many forms of anemia, each with its own cause. Anemia can be temporary or long term, and it can range from mild to severe.[2]

                                                                    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

                                                                    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a condition that can cause persistent, unexplained fatigue that interferes with daily activities for more than six months.

                                                                    Advertising

                                                                    This is a chronic condition with no one-size-fits-all treatment, but lifestyle changes can often help ease some symptoms of fatigue.[3]

                                                                    Diabetes

                                                                    Diabetes can cause fatigue with either high or low blood sugars. When your sugars are high, they remain in the bloodstream instead of being used for energy, which makes you feel fatigued. Low blood sugar (glucose) means you may not have enough fuel for energy, also causing fatigue.[4]

                                                                    Sleep Apnea

                                                                    Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder where sufferers briefly stop breathing for short periods during sleep. Most people are not aware this is happening, but it can cause loud snoring, and daytime fatigue.

                                                                    Being overweight, smoking, and drinking alcohol can all worsen the symptoms of sleep apnea.[5]

                                                                    Thyroid disease

                                                                    An underactive thyroid gland means you have too little thyroid hormone (thyroxine) in your body. This makes you feel tired and you could also put on weight and have aching muscles and dry skin.[6]

                                                                    Common lifestyle factors that can cause fatigue include:

                                                                    • Lack of sleep
                                                                    • Too much sleep 
                                                                    • Alcohol and drugs 
                                                                    • Sleep disturbances 
                                                                    • Lack of regular exercise and sedentary behaviour 
                                                                    • Poor diet 

                                                                    Common workplace issues that can cause fatigue include:

                                                                    • Shift work: Our body is designed to sleep during the night. A shift worker may confuse their circadian clock by working when their body is programmed to be asleep.
                                                                    • Poor workplace practices: This may include long work hours, hard physical labour, irregular working hours (such as rotating shifts), a stressful work environment, boredom or working alone. 
                                                                    • Workplace stress – This can be caused by a wide range of factors including job dissatisfaction, heavy workload, conflicts with bosses or colleagues, bullying, or threats to job security.
                                                                    • Burnout: This could be striving too hard on one area of your life while neglecting others, which leads to a life that feels out of balance.

                                                                    Psychological Causes of Fatigue

                                                                    Psychological factors are present in many cases of extreme tiredness and fatigue.  These may include:

                                                                    • Depression: Depression is characterised by severe and prolonged feelings of sadness, dejection and hopelessness. People who are depressed commonly experience chronic fatigue.
                                                                    • Anxiety and stress: Someone who is constantly anxious or stressed keeps their body in overdrive. The constant flooding of adrenaline exhausts the body, and fatigue sets in.
                                                                    • Grief: Losing a loved one causes a wide range of emotions including shock, guilt, depression, despair and loneliness.

                                                                    How to Tackle Constant Fatigue

                                                                    Here are 12 ways you can start tackling the causes of fatigue and start feeling more energetic.

                                                                    1. Tell The Truth

                                                                    Some people can numb themselves to the fact that they are overtired or fatigued all the time. In the long run, this won’t help you.

                                                                    To give you the best chance to overcome or eliminate fatigue, you must diagnose and tell the truth about the things that are draining your energy, making you tired or causing constant fatigue.

                                                                    Once you’re honest with yourself about the activities you’re doing in your life that you find irritating, energy-draining, and make you tired on a regular basis you can make a commitment to stop doing them.

                                                                    The help that you need to overcome fatigue is available to you, but not until you tell the truth about it. The first person you have to sell on getting rid of the causes of fatigue is yourself.

                                                                    One starting point is to diagnose the symptoms. When you start feeling stressed, overtired or just not operating at your normal energy levels make a note of:

                                                                    • How you feel
                                                                    • What time of day it is
                                                                    • What may have contributed to your fatigue
                                                                    • How your mind and body reacts

                                                                    This analysis may help you identify, understand and then eliminate very specific causes.

                                                                    2. Reduce Your Commitments

                                                                    When we have too many things on our plate personally and professionally, we can feel overstretched, causing physical and mental fatigue.

                                                                    Advertising

                                                                    If you have committed to things you really don’t want to do, this causes irritability and low emotional engagement. Stack these up throughout your day and week, then your stress levels will rise.

                                                                    When these commitments have deadlines associated with them, you may be trying to cram in far too much in a short period of time.  This creates more stress and can affect your decision making ability.

                                                                    Start being realistic about how much you can get done. Either reduce the commitments you have or give yourself more time to complete them in.

                                                                    3. Get Clear On Your Priorities

                                                                    If working on your list of to-do’s or goals becomes too overwhelming, start reducing and prioritizing the things that matter most.

                                                                    Start with prioritizing just 3 things every day. When you complete those 3 things, you’ll get a rush of energy and your confidence will grow.

                                                                    If you’re trying to juggle too many things and are multi-tasking, your energy levels will drop and you’ll struggle to maintain focus.

                                                                    Unfinished projects can make you self-critical and feel guilty which drops energy levels further, creating inaction.

                                                                    Make a list of your 3 MIT (Most Important Tasks) for the next day before you go to bed. This will stop you overcommitting and get you excited about what the next day can bring.

                                                                    4. Express More Gratitude

                                                                    Gratitude and confidence are heavily linked. Just being thankful for what you have and what you’ve achieved increases confidence and makes you feel more optimistic.

                                                                    It can help you improve your sense of wellbeing, which can bring on feelings of joy and enthusiasm.

                                                                    Try starting a gratitude journal or just note down 3 things you’re grateful for every day.

                                                                    5. Focus On Yourself

                                                                    Exhaustion and fatigue can arrive by focusing solely on other people’s needs all the time, rather than worrying about and focusing on what you need (and want).

                                                                    There are work commitments, family commitments, social commitments. You may start with the best intentions, to put in your best performance at work, to be an amazing parent and friend, to simply help others.

                                                                    But sometimes, we extend ourselves too much and go beyond our personal limits to help others. That’s when constant exhaustion can creep up on us.  Which can make us more fatigued.

                                                                    We all want to help and do our best for others, but there needs to be some balance. We also need to take some time out just for ourselves to recharge and rejuvenate.

                                                                    6. Set Aside Rest and Recovery Time

                                                                    Whether it’s a couple of hours, a day off, a mini-break or a proper holiday, time off is essential to help us recover, recharge and refocus.

                                                                    Advertising

                                                                    Recovery time helps fend off mental fatigue and allows us to simply kick back and relax.

                                                                    The key here, though, is to remove ourselves from the daily challenges that bring on tiredness and fatigue. Here’s how.

                                                                    Can you free yourself up completely from work and personal obligations to just rest and recover?

                                                                    7. Take a Power Nap

                                                                    When you’re feeling tired or fatigued and you have the ability to take a quick 20-minute nap, it could make a big difference to your performance for the rest of the day.

                                                                    Napping can improve learning, memory and boost your energy levels quickly.

                                                                    This article on the benefit of napping is a useful place to start if you want to learn more: How a 20-Minute Nap at Work Makes You Awake and Productive the Whole Day

                                                                    The simple act of introducing some form of physical activity into your day can make a huge difference. It can boost energy levels, make you feel much better about yourself and can help you avoid fatigue.

                                                                    Find something that fits into your life, be that walking, going to the gym, running or swimming. 

                                                                    The key is to ensure the exercise is regular and that you are emotionally engaged and committed to stick with it.

                                                                    You could also walk more which will help clear your head and shift your focus away from stressful thoughts.

                                                                    9. Get More Quality Sleep

                                                                    To avoid tiredness, exhaustion and fatigue, getting enough quality sleep matters. 

                                                                    Your body needs sleep to recharge.  Getting the right amount of sleep every night can improve your health, reduce stress levels and help us improve our memory and learning skills.

                                                                    My previous article on The Benefits of Sleep You Need to Know will give you some action steps to start improving your sleep. 

                                                                    10. Improve Your Diet

                                                                    Heavy or fatty meals can make you feel sluggish and tired, whilst some foods or eating strategies do just the opposite.

                                                                    Our always on lives have us reaching for sweets or other sugary snacks to give us a burst of energy to keep going. Unfortunately, that boost fades quickly which can leave you feeling depleted and wanting more.

                                                                    On the other hand, whole grains and healthy unsaturated fats supply the reserves you can draw on throughout the day.

                                                                    Advertising

                                                                    To keep energy up and steady, it’s a good idea to limit refined sugar and starches.

                                                                    Eating small meals and healthy snacks every few hours throughout the day provides a steady supply of nutrients to body and brain. It’s also important not to skip breakfast.

                                                                    Eating a balanced diet helps keep your blood sugar in a normal range and prevents that sluggish feeling when your blood sugar drops.

                                                                    11. Manage Your Stress Levels

                                                                    Stress is one of the leading causes of exhaustion and fatigue, and can seriously affect your health.

                                                                    When you have increased levels of stress at work and at home, it’s easy to feel exhausted all the time. 

                                                                    Identifying the causes of stress and then tackling the problems should be a priority. 

                                                                    My article on How to Help Anxiety When Life is Stressing You Out shares 16 strategies you can use to overcome stress.

                                                                    12. Get Hydrated

                                                                    Sometimes we can be so busy that we forget to keep ourselves fully hydrated.

                                                                    Water makes up about 60 percent of your body weight and is essential in maintaining our body’s basic functions.

                                                                    If we don’t have enough water, it can adversely affect our mental and physical performance, which leads to tiredness and fatigue.

                                                                    The recommended daily amount is around two litres a day, so to stay well hydrated keep a water bottle with you as much as possible.

                                                                    The Bottom Line

                                                                    These 12 tips can help you reduce your tiredness and feeling of fatigue.  Some will work better than others as we are all different, whilst others can be incorporated together in your daily life.

                                                                    If you’ve tried to make positive changes to reduce fatigue and you still feel tired and exhausted, it may be time to consider making an appointment with your doctor to discuss your condition.
