Miniature Georgian sofa with 'Harlem Toile Girl' Fabric

Sheila Bridges is an Interior Designer based in Harlem, USA. Her ‘Harlem Toile de Jouy’ wallpaper and fabric designs are a new twist on the traditional French pattern. Interpreting the delicate pastoral vignettes and 18th-century costumes, Sheila Bridges uses African American figures at joyful leisure, dancing, picnicking and playing double dutch.

The Kitchen:

Contents:

  • A yellow wooden kitchen cabinet
  • Glass jars with seasonings
  • A miniature macrame hanging
  • Long Dining table covered with patterned fabric
  • Barbados plates and tray made from air clay and printed paper


The kitchen wallpaper is a repeat pattern I created in Photoshop; 'Mango Trees'. Caribbean style table decorations and wooden painted chairs covered in 'African' fabric.






Miniature Chair: The Beyonce



Two rooms on the second floor

These two rooms are smaller: one will possibly be a 'music room' so will have miniature vinyl records, record player, sofas. The other one might be a Library with quotes from my favourite poems and books in miniature bound leather books. There's also a miniature 'dollshouse in a dollshouse' based on a typical Barbadian single storey home, reminiscent of my Great Aunt's home when we stayed in Barbados.

Lighting: The whole house will be lit with dimmable LED bulbs fit into handmade lampshades on the ceilings. It will be powered using a standard UK plug. And, why don't we see dollshouses with street art? Stay in the loop and you can follow my journey...
