Hi everyone, As a newbie who's decided to eventually create a series of furniture in which my dolls can live, and having seen the kind of things that LadyWithTheDog has, I was wondering how many of you have a permanent set rather than keeping them somewhere else (shelf, drawers, fulls-size chairs?) and then posing them for stories (as for example Loki@Street Of Dreams). I admit I can only design and build the framework for the beds and so on and will need to get someone else to sew the covers and cushions, with fabrics from Liberty's or John Lewis or some of the shops in Soho (Chinatown), but with a double bed working out at about 67*50cm, never mind tables and sofas and possibly cupboards, that's taking over an area of 2*4m, which is large. Even with bunk beds or sofa-beds, or perhaps the kind that hinge up into a cupboard, there's the logistics of fitting that into the back-story of the characters, and even if two of the boys weren't sharing the double (yes, another shonen-ai fan!), putting that into the same bedroom as the girl's single just doesn't seem right. (I'm lucky in that I do have a spare room, but that's used for exercising, and though the mini-gym only takes up one corner, the rest of the floorspace is needed for myself when I'm training.) As you can probably gather, I'm trying to make as 'real' an environment as I can, but given the limitations of space, I was wondering how others had got around it? At the moment, I'm creating a sort of neutral space of floor and walls, into which I can then place various things as and when I need them to illustrate a story, but I hate getting things out all the time even if it means they get dusty. Anyway, I'd love to hear how you have done things... Catherine.
