Barbie's Dream House

I loved playing with Barbies when I was younger. I had a massive collection and loved receiving the new Christmas edition every year under the tree. The best thing about playing with Barbie was all of the accessories she came with. Who didn't love the corvette, dream house and of course Ken.

Yesterday I spied a dream doll house that makes me want to whip out my Barbies from storage and set up house.

The team from Curbed sent 5 design publications blank slate Doll House and a couple of props and asked them to do what they do best...DECORATE!

Here is what the Lonnyteam came up with:

While my first love was the Lonny abode the folks at House Beautifuldid a fab job as well.

Love the mini magazines & books on the coffee table:

Architectural Digestis recently moving their offices so they represented that in their house:

This is amazing! It makes me want to buy a doll house & decorate it in a way that my husband won't let me do to our house.
Thanks for sharing this.

That is so cool. And the Architectural Digest house made me chuckle. What a neat idea.

Camila - So cool! Went to the site and the House Beautiful dollhouse is my favorite. Walls decoupaged in pages from their blue issue? Love it!

Ah, I love this! I, too, loved dolls when I was little. I made houses for them out of my blocks and even cut up my moms napkins to make bedding and curtains (oops!). Last quarter in my interior design class I had to make a room of a doll house and it was so fun! This is so charming. Thanks for sharing (:

I had a dollhouse as a child, and it's still in my parents' basement awaiting electrification, banisters, and flooring. I wonder if my son will be interested in it some day - call it a "model home" instead of a dollhouse and have him help my dad finish it so that I can decorate it like these fantastic houses!
