New Shoes


 
This is one of those scenes completely inspired by a Re-ment purchase. It has certainly happened before and will happen again!

This time, it is #5 from the "Department Store Shopping" set, which includes a Louis Vuitton-style pair of shoes, suitcase, datebook, and pen with case. All very realistic!


Obviously, there's lots of brown going on here, so I chose a masculine paper to complement the pieces, and accessorized the room from there. I like this little spot in the Bodensee -- a nice corner room with a view!










By the way, if you are interested to see Re-ment sets compiled, Renatta has developed a wonderful resource at her webpage, iamneverbored. Go and have a look!

And...if you are looking to purchase Re-ment, Jane of Harapekodoggybag has an amazing selection and her prices are fair, even with shipping from Japan. The quality of her pieces is pristine, and she has many older, discontinued sets. Warning: you will buy something!

Stay tuned for my recap of the New York International Gift Fair and the Toy Fair! Posting soon!

Credits: Chairs are Bodo Hennig; table is Petite Princess; storage unit is vintage German, likely VERO; Rug is a cut piece of embossed felt from Michaels; light is vintage German; planter is by Lene of Dragondee Modern Miniatures; wallpaper is scrapbook paper from DCWV "Downtown Loft" stack. Accessories are Re-ment, Petite Princess, AG Minis, and random dollhouse store finds.

The time it took me: 42 minutes

    1. Excellent, point, littleoslo! I should have mentioned in my post that Re-ment is generally scaled for 1:6, but many pieces are adaptable for 1:12. I started a "Mini-Sizer" wiki for Re-ment for exactly this purpose! http://mini-sizer.wikispaces.com/

  5. it looks so real! ..in real life I would take his shoes and toss them in the hall closet along with his briefcase (actually I'd just toss them on his side of the bed along with his shoes..Im wicked like that)

    1. They are a manly yet elegant pair of shoes. I pictured a pretty handsome dude as the owner :)

    1. Thanks! I am digging the blue and orange combo. Manly! I originally had an Orla Kiely paper and it was just too feminine. Always happy to share the best way to buy more Re-ment;)

  8. I love blue and orange, great color scheme. It's all fab, but I'm digging that potted plant on the plastic Petite Princess table with just that tiny sprout. So cute. I'd kick my shoes off here.
