  3. Pepper you are so awesomely talented! I love the dark finish with the bright yellow. I was debating that scheme for my 1:1 kitchen. Now I know it is just what I want to do you are such an inspiration on all scales !

  4. I only discovered your blog last night at about 11pm, and have at this point read every post way back into 2012... I'm not even a miniaturist, per say! I collect model equines and create basic dioramas and tack, yet you've inspired me to try and up my game! This lodge is absolutely gorgeous, and it's been a pleasure to read your progress (even if I did so backwards... Whoops!). I'm also a photographer and I think you've outdone me there too! Thank you for the motivation!

    Brrrrrr... Looks like you might be in for a white Christmas.

  13. What a wonderful piece Pepper. It took me a few photographs to realise this was in fact your project and not a fabulous modern home. Absolutely brilliant.

  16. Absolutely gorgeous! Hard to believe that isn't a full sized house from the photos. Wow!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Awesome! I'd love to stay there :)

  18. I'm still laughing about Ilona's comment - yes, listen to Mommy! *LOL* But now I need to say: This is absolutely awesome!!! Anybody just looking at the pictures would never guess it's a miniature. Chapeau also for all the details you've decorated it with... and even a floating shelf for the books... *sigh* Wonderful work!

    Hugs

  19. You are going to hate me. I am like a spoiled rotten kid at Christmas...
    I am looking at all of the photos (the fish wall sculpture is my favorite thing) for 15 minutes each, trying to absorb absolutely everything. I'm ooohhhing and aaahhhing and loving every minute! I finally reach the last photo, read the credits, and immediately, my brain says "oh that's awesome! Now what's she going to do next!".
    I am rotten, I know it, but I just love your brand of incredible insanity! I want more...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow!! It is just amazing. I love it. It is a work of art. From a space point of view, I also like the idea of putting the floating bookcase on that thin wall. I might even try that in my real home! And I like your little sign: Love the mini things in life!

  31. Yes, finally, have been waiting for this! It looks SO wonderful and I'd like to book a stay for let's say... 6 months (and a shrinkingmachine to fit in it)! haha :D Wow Pepper, you've made such a realistic little home with so many great details, colourscheme that's right, very realistic animals that complete it, etc etc etc: it's just PERFECT!!! And that's some nice winterweather you got there, what we won't do for our miniatures and scene's, right ;)

  34. Freaking awesome! I don't know what I love more; the super professional outdoor architectural portraits, the bookshelf, the magazine quality interiors, or that little bull terrier. Love, love, love it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. BRAVO! I knew it would be lovely and perfect, but seeing it, here, wow, it took my breath away. So unbelievably exquisite...my favorite part is that you are such a wonderful interior designer....every element was sheer brilliance in form, color, scale and placement. I don't know how you did it, but, I agree, the outdoor photography was genius.

  38. Oh Pepper, for me you're the winner this year, this is so impressive, I love every bit of it and can't stop looking at the pictures with all these little details. I love the convertible sofa and the cat seems to like it as well. All goes together so nicely it's just breathtaking. Thanks for sharing this amazing work with us step by step!

  39. My goodness lady, well done, slow clap, drop the mic *boom* Your style is always stunning and items are so well placed.

    It certainly is true, when you cant tell its in miniature, its perfectly done. I see this displayed in a home or modern spaces magazine for sure.

    Much luck, not that you will need it with this amazing piece of art!

  42. Simply outstanding! Even though I know its a miniature, I still find myself fooled into thinking its the real deal! I love the first two indoor photos best for that reason - they could be from an interior design magazine!

  47. Wow Pepper, this is gorgeous! Everything I see is perfect, in colour, in scale, in materials, in design, in originality...I love the fact that you have included a pull out bed, WITH comforter matching the pillows. That must be my favorite part I think.
    Congratulations on this most outstanding build. And thank you for all of the photos, which are also really good!
