As many of you know by now, I am completely addicted to making tiny things that are too cute to resist. I don’t know why I make them, maybe it is to give my brain a rest from staring at the computer but I created these for our brochure that accompanies our DIY furniture sets. I wanted to share the photos and also add to our growing gallery of ideas of things to make for your little house. I am also working on a secret dollhouse project for holiday that will bring all of these things into our very own huset. Stay tuned for more!
Over the course of the year, I LOVE getting emails from proud parents with photos of their kids houses. I love seeing their creativity in all of the handmade details. I have been gathering them up and can’t wait to show off: Lille Huset Round up 1: “Sarah’s Sweet & Stylish Abode”, my favorite part of this house… UM, the fact that she included her little sister as her paper doll!! Thank you Maria! House Round up 2: “Issy’s Cozy Mouse Lounge House”, my favorite part is the horse laying next to the sofa while the mouse has a nap! Thank you Jaime for the photos! If you want to share you photos just email us and you will also get a coupon from us for 50% off on our sites. xxoo

We love every single store that loves us, but we have an extra special warm fuzzy for our partnership with Paper Source stores. My friend was shopping in one of the stores today and found our houses on the shelf. As the sales lady approached her she told her all about me and my story and why our products are so “great.” I have to say that was such an amazing thing to hear, not to mention every store decorated their houses too! Thank you Paper Source. That’s Primrose on the page

Hi all, I have no idea why it has taken me so long to post about what an amazing time we had at the Dwell on Design Show in LA. Dwell Magazine welcomed us not only in the magazine, but also on stage with Amanda Dameron AND with a booth at the show. It was so exciting to be able to exhibit with the best in modern design across the country. We met lots of new people all making amazing things. BUT best of all we met some new fans of our products. I LOVE it when kids come up and get so excited about our dollhouses that I can’t help but give them away! We got to launch our new Modern stackable dollhouse at the show and sold bunches of them to modern people everywhere. Here are some photos of our exhibit and highlights from the show. My husband the architect was like a kid in the candy store running around taking photos 🙂

Hi everyone, As you know I have been working on some fabric designs so your kids can not only design their lille huset house but they can also design their bedroom! When I first conceived of the idea of doing the little houses that kids can decorate, I have always wanted to have the option to have them become true to scale. I have spent the past few weeks sewing away and making some things with the fabrics. You can buy all of them at spoonflower if you click here you will get to my shop. I am doing my kids rooms over the next few weeks and will post photos when they are done! Also, if you see something on spoonflower and you want another color or design, just let me know and I can upload it for you. I’d love to help you design your spaces! Let me know what you think!
I decided to do a musing about our mission as a company which is: “modern design, classic play” with the core values of “eco-friendly” and “made in the USA.” You might be thinking that is a lot to take on, and no company can do all of those things. You can also add that I wanted all of my products to be reasonably priced, so all kids could have access to them (our products range from $12-$40). Lastly, I wanted them to embody a spirit of making a home that if full of love and that each child can call his/her own. I’ll start with “Modern design, Classic Play”: I am always amazed when people ask me to make the wooden houses again. When I tell them why I have gotten completely away from wood, they fall in love with our products. Our products are based on play houses from the 1950’s which were designed for hands on creative play for kids, and many of them were made from our material, paperboard. I have been …
So our second birthday party is le Marias, our la petite maison. enjoy!
How to make the Lille Huset prim and proper bed: Pop out the bed pieces and two pieces of decorative trim. Cut the decorative trim pieces in half and tape them to the head and footboard, punch holes in the top to add bakers twine. Cut paper to the size of the mattress to make a duvet and cut out a fabric square for a pillow. Add paper to the bottom brace to make a dust ruffle. Cut out paper and add to the fronts of the head and footboard with tape and add paper to the new bed posts. Draw on a pretty P and roses to make it a special Primrose bed. Stand up the headboard and footboard with the bottom brace. Slide in the mattress. Add the new duvet and pillow and you’ve made it!
Logan is the house that is so big and perfect that all of the other houses think of him as a castle. He is a house that sits on the grand boulevard with high peaks that seem to reach to the sky. The owners of this house keep the house in perfect condition no matter the season. All year round they keep twinkle lights on the one little tree that sits in the middle of the perfect lawn. Each and every night when the lights turn on he seems even more magical.
As promised here is the first thing to make for your Primrose, making it the perfect English cottage, a sod roof. I made mine with artificial moss. I used: SuperMoss, you can click here to buy it at Joann. I cut it to size and attached it to the roof of the primrose with glue dots. My kids went crazy when they saw it. Tomorrow, we will make a super cute window box for the front.
Well, we know the weather is going to be nice soon enough so we thought we would send along some warm weather love with our new paper play free download! Enjoy! picnic
