Dollhouse Showcase: Contemporary Beach Model

The above image is the contemporary beach dollhouse designed by Richard Manion Architecture Inc. for the Kaleidoscope Ball Dollhouse Showcase. This house will feature designs by Chris Barrett and Woodson and Rummerfield. See Jaime Rummerfield's post about the dollhouse charity here. Yes, you will notice that Rummerfield has borrowed text, images and links from this blog, but I'm cool with it. It's considered flattery, right? Plus, I'm totally borrowing this pic from her. Anyway, I think the dollhouse looks quite promising. What do you all think so far?

    1. You are right, Kathi! I didn't even think about that. Do you remember the cruise ship Kenner made for the Glamour Gals? It would be cool and unusual to have a cruise ship dollhouse--or even a yacht. Manufacturers should look into this. Collectors and hobbyists are always looking for new projects...
