Kitchens

The kitchen is probably my favorite room in my dollhouses - so here they are, all in one place!  If you'd like to see the rest of each house, you can find a link on the right where all my houses are listed.

 My oldest Hanse kichen in my 1960s Hanse house.


 I don't have the matching refrigerator for this kitchen, but I altered one that was missing the handle anyway.  The wood is darker, though.  In my 1950s Hanse.


The backsplash on this Hanse kitchen matches the original wallpaper.  The appliances are a dark green. Unfortunately I'm missing a dishwasher door, and the oven door is strangely enough installed in the dishwasher.  This kitchen is all one piece apart from the refrigerator.  In my 1980s Hanse.


 This Hanse kitchen is similar to the one above, but it's in two parts plus refrigerator, the appliances are orange and the cabinet handles are different. Here again, the dishwasher door is missing.  Now in my 1970s Hanse, but I only just put it there, so there are no pictures of it on that post.


This Hanse kitchen has darker wood cabinets and white trim - a really beautiful kitchen.  In my 1975 Hanse.


This is a little economy kitchen from Hanse, without any wall cabinets.  It's not currently in a house.


 The dark orange Lundby kitchen, not easy to find.  I'm still missing chairs and the drawer unit, but I like the wooden chairs with the orange.  In my 1957 Lundby.


 The most common of the older Lundby kitchens.  I recently got the hood. In my 1960 Lundby.


 A Lundby kitchen I altered (with self-adhesive wood grain vinyl) to fit with my Sallingboe furniture.  In my 1969 Lundby.


 Another hard-to find Lundby kitchen in Lime green. Still missing some chairs, but I quite like the red and green contrast.  In my 1963 Brio Alphyddan.


The turquoise Lundby kitchen.  Not currently installed in a house, but I used to have it in my 1970s Hanse. I made the wall cabinet myself using a defective sink unit.


The most common Lundby kitchen, the one from my childhood in the house my dad built for me. In "My dad's Lundby copy".


I'm rearranging some houses so I've just put this Lundby kitchen in my 1977 Lundby Stockholm.  No pictures of it in that post.


This kitchen used to be in my 1977 Lundby Stockholm, but I'm doing a house with things that remind me of my childhood home, which is why I altered this Lundby kitchen in the first place - our cabinets were that color.  We had chairs very similar to these Brio chairs, and I've altered a Lundby table to look like one my dad built for our kitchen.


 The oldest Lisa kitchen.  In my 1975 Lisa.


The green Lisa kitchen.  I just put it in my 1984 Lisa Chalet.


My favorite Lisa kitchen with sliding cabinet doors.  Now in a new extension level, but I had it in my 1984 Lisa Chalet before.


Tomy kitchen in my Tomy dollhouse.


Brio kitchen (with a green Lundby wall cabinet) in my 1974 Brio.


This kitchen is a mix of Lundby, Lerro and Lisa.  In my 1960s Lisa economy.

1984 Lisa Chalet

The second house I've bought is another Danish Lisa house - the huge chalet! Unfortunately it arrived damaged, so I've had to add extra screws and glue it together in places.  It will be fun adding all the furniture!


Now with furniture:

















 I scanned the sliding door and printed a lower wall to keep the horses in.







For some of the following pictures I played around with the sliding wall that is meant to go in front of the stables and another white panel I had - to try closing in the house a bit more for more realistic looking pictures.  I'm considering making wall with a window out of cardboard. That way I can use another curtain - this house only has two windows.










1960s Lundby neutral colors

Two new dollhouses have arrived in my collection, this is one of them - a wonderful vintage Lundby house.  I have decided that I will use all the things in this dollhouse that remind me of my childhood home.

Curtains!

I just love all the different variations of the Lisa curtains - here are the ones I've collected so far.














Not sure if this one above is original...


My absolute favourite!!!

Latest addition.
