This is my first half scale dollhouse project the Fairfield by Greenleaf. This is a beautifully detailed house. The layout of the house is just wonderful. It has six rooms plus a large attic. It has four fireplaces and a wraparound porch! It measures only 15" wide X 20" high x 16" deep. I'm creating a Victorian themed house. I love working in this scale. Be sure to stop by often to see the progress as the house comes together.

Wallpaper, Flooring, Exterior Paint Choices
I have made some decisions on my wallpaper. Sticking with the Victorian theme below is a sample of some of the papers I have chosen.
I have also decided to do Walnut hardwood floors throughout the Fairfield. Houseworks makes a 1/2" scale wood floor backed on paper that is super easy to install. All you have to do is cut it to fit and add a clear satin varnish.
I have also decided on the exterior paint colors. Doing some research I was able to find historic Victorian paint colors. The hardware store will mix paint samples and they are a decent price. The paint samples are more than enough to paint a half scale dollhouse.
