Linzi Macdonald has created the ultimate dollhouse, filled with handmade replicas of modern designer furniture and mini versions of real-life homewares and accessories. It was the renovation of her daughter’s dollhouse, titled Maddie’s Dollhouse Reno, that Linzi shared via Instagram, that got people’s attention and introduced us to the perfect handmade home. The popularity of Linzi’s handcrafted dollhouse has led to her next project and the opportunity to give back – The Little Linzi Project. I really enjoyed creating Maddie’s Dollhouse, and wanted to continue creating these crazy miniatures, but wasn’t sure how to go about it. Then I saw a dollhouse on Gumtree and thought I could do it up and auction it off, giving the proceeds to a family or individual in need. I’m still on the hunt for that family, but I’m hoping to have it all finished by Christmas…fingers crossed.
Some of the pieces I’ve created so far for my new project #thelittlelinziproject have been made in the actual designer’s products, such as Printebebe dresses for the raccoons and Fictional Objects sent me their material to create the bed linen. All the prints were donated to me by the original artists, and I’ve made most of the furniture myself.
A Sylvanian Families raccoon wears a Printebebe dress, standing near a handmade replica of an Armadillo & Co woven rug. The room’s walls are wallpapered in Bespoke Letterpress floral paper. A beautiful felt flower by The Grey Rose hangs above a trestle table with a Hubble + Duke gold crown sitting atop.
Linzi has turned a postcard print by Pampa into some living room wall art. That sits by a gorgeous Natalie Jones miniature weave hanging. The furniture is a replica of Kalon pieces with a Carved ‘Julia’ Stump by Pop & Scott sitting nearby. In the corner hangs a Byron Bay hanging chair.
The kitchen was ordered and bought off eBay, and modified along with the stools. Linzi replicated the Marimekko mugs and Uashmama bag. The wall prints are by Australian artist Kimmy Hogan and the Australia wall art is by American artist We Wear Art. The bathroom is the latest dollhouse room from the Little Linzi Project to be completed.
