In with the old, in with the new
I don't have any modern Lundby dollhouses (yet!), but I've been unable to resist some of the modern furniture. I especially love the stainless steel kitchen with island, which has found a home in the Lundby garage extension of my Lisa dollhouse:
I've also acquired a pink sectional sofa (the corduroy floral cushions are to die for!) that I'm not sure where to place yet. My original idea was to add it to my pink loft bedroom, but as you'll see it's a bit of a tight squeeze (and does it really make sense to have lounge furniture in the bedroom?!):
The IKEA-look garden table and chairs are also bigger than I expected. They take up almost all the room on my 90s Gothenburg balcony:
The fourth chair wouldn't fit on the balcony, so I added it to my blue bedroom:
One vintage/modern room that I'm happy with is a little space I partitioned off in one of my extensions. I like how the plain wood staircase coordinates with the modern wood bookcase. And I think the vintage curtains and rug look pretty good with the modern red chairs:
Maybe it's okay to decorate with a hodge podge of old and new. After all, that's what my real house looks like (with more of an emphasis on the old and decrepit)!
