1970s Homes … in Miniature

1970s home? Nope, dollhouse.

It makes perfect sense. 1970s dollhouses were inspired by 1970s homes. We are inspired by 1970s homes. 1970s dollhouses can inspire us. (Otherwise stated as d=h and i=h, thus d=i).

“For this type of treatment, select sturdy fabric with bold colors… [U]se the same fabric to upholster the headboard and footboard, [and] to make the trim fitted bedspread…. Attach the panels of fabric to the wall with double-faced pressure-sensitive tape or with staples, or hang them from a ceiling-height rod.”
