AListBaby Loves: Lundby Dollhouse

Having a little girl is magical. I get to share some of my favorite parts of growing up with her. The dress-up, the dollies, and now a DOLLHOUSE!

My days playing with a dollhouse inspired my love of interior design today. We were so excited the day our Lundby dollhouse arrived on our doostep. And baby girl is completely smitten! Lundby is one of the world’s oldest manufactured doll’s houses dating back to 1945 and the most contemporary when it comes to look. Lundby was founded by Danish couple Axel and Grete Thomsen when they moved to Gothenburg, Sweden. Lundby pioneered the doll’s house’s fitted electrical lighting system to be found in every Lundby house. The colors are cool and refreshing.

The result of these endeavours makes Lundby one of the strongest doll’s house brands on the market worldwide. The beauty of Lundby is that new ranges of furniture and accessories are constantly being developed to keep the Sweet Lundby Home fresh and contemporary. Since 1945 Lundby has followed trends, fashions, inventions and new lifestyles. Today, theLundby Home is fitted, of course, with a microwave and a home computer, as well as a CD player and stereo, while furniture, mats and other accessories have a 21st century design.

Baby girl thinks this is all just great, and she will enjoy it even MORE as she gets older! We love the classic yet modern design of Lundby. We are starting a great family tradition.

 

 

Nursery Paint Color: Melted Ice Cream?

Let the nursery decorating begin! We know we want to add decorative crown molding to the room. And we know we want to have the ceiling made smooth and painted, along with the room. I have decided on a color scheme of pale pink, white and silver. (I know..BIG surprise!) We have a contractor coming today to take a look at the room and give us an estimate. I found some thick, elaborate dental and egg molding today that Mr. AList and I both love. We also purchased a ceiling medallion that will look gorgeous atop a glimmering chandelier that we may be on the hunt for all summer. Now the big question is paint color! I am leaning toward Melted Ice Cream by Benjamin Moore, but I have a list of eight colors that I will be trying on our wall in the next few weeks. Below is a photo of a room painted in Melted Ice Cream.
