Transform! Your Bedroom into a Dollhouse.

Hello there & welcome to my bedroom! (or at least a corner of it! Like my humongous cardboard box filled with cds?! Glamorous, i know!) For myself, it's not enough to dress like a cutesy and slightly weird, vintage inspired doll- my living space has to reflect it! I've always been a big fan of interior design and wanted to share with you some adorable pieces to doll up your space (whether you're living in a cramped dorm room, or a Parisian mansion!)

My beautiful pink plushy chair and mirrored furniture are both from Horchow. (Owned by Neiman Marcus, they sell beautiful and alas- fairly expensive decor.) I like mixing up high and low pieces by mixing in vintage (absolute favourite painting shown behind me) and the inexpensive (my black and cream striped vase, $10, and the fake flowers that resides in them.)

I have rummaged the entire Internet for you (yes you, darling!) and collected a variety of endearing home items both well under $100 and over in hopes that it will inspire you to doll up your space, no matter how big or small!

1. Ice Cream Lamp 2. Doe Wall Art 3. Harlequin Chandelier 4. Woodland Curio Stand 5. IKEA PS BRUM

First up- the inexpensive & equally irresistible!

An Ice Cream Cone... LAMP?! Yes, dear! Sweeten up your space with this delicious & huge ice cream cone! $48 from FredFlare.com

Nothing is better than a little bit of classic Kitschy-spice. This cute & fairly strange portrait of a Deer will be sure to make you smile. $19.99 from UrbanOutfitters.com

This shimmery fairy-esque tree stump would be a lovely seat to display your favourite jewelry or childhood stuffed animal alike! $28 from FredFlare.com

Every dollhouse needs a wonderful, sparkly Chandelier! This one is a steal at a mere $28 also from UrbanOutfitters.com

Now for the cutest & insane of them all- ever wanted a giant, flurry, and kind of strange teddy bear chair?! I thought so- me too! One of my secrets is always checking the children's section at any given store as they tend to have some of the most endearing selection! What saves this piece is the fact that it doesn't have a face (which, in my opinion, would have taken it from weird & cool to just simply too juvenile.) Size wise, i definitely believe most full-grown girls could enjoy the pleasures of this plush lovely! Discovered at Ikea.com for $79

1. "Antoinette" Mirror 2. Golden Vases 3. Butterfly Garden Seat 4. Heirloom Clock

And now- the pricier items! But fret not, i have gone out of my way to make these as non-painful for your wallet as possible! Everything is under $230. I strongly believe in mixing high and low end items to create a look that is both rich and unique. I promise these quality items are well worth the $$! All items from Horchow.

First and foremost- a fabulous mirror! Absolutely a must for the perfect dollhouse. Mine is so large even my 6'7'' boyfriend can view his entire lanky & cute self at once and then some! (and yes, guilty, i really like looking at myself!) It helps that this mirror is a fabulous price! $198.90 at Horchow.com

These wonderfully hammered golden vases are the perfect accent to your dynamic dollhouse decor! Leave them as is, or stick a couple flowers in them(real or fake!) $65 at Horchow.com

I adore this garden seat because it could be used in so many ways. Us it as a chair, table, or foot rest! Especially great if you don't have a ton of space, and lets face it, you can't deny how pretty it is. $229 at Horchow.com

Now here's something i feel in a world of cellphones, computers, and fancy watches are often forgotten about- the presence and beauty of a clock! Indulge in time-telling with this lovely piece for $142.90 at Horchow.com
