Extra Extra! Read all about it! I've been waiting for this article to hit the press for weeks, but SF Chronicle writer Leilani Marie Labong's editor loved the article so much that they waited to run it in the next available Sunday issue, Nov 28th. I'll pick up my copy tomorrow to see it on the cover of the Home and Garden section. Woo hoo modern minis!! Read the full article here and check out the great photography: "Bauhaus meets dollhouse: miniatures go midcentury"
Seriously, how cute is Doris? I love this shot. I think The Chronicle photographer, Michael Macor, did an outstanding job capturing the DWR event.
The photos showcase the work of the four designers featured at the Design Within Reach Miniature Modernism: “The next generation of dollhouse designs” last September. You can read my recap of the night here »

My Antrim was on display as part of Paris' work, as I've been working with him to turn this dollhouse into a modern dwelling. You can see pictures of my Antrim Dollhouse at the DWR event here »
I get a little giddy and nervous when being interviewed. It's awkward and fun rolled into one, but I must say, I think my quote came out better in this article compared to the kicker I got in the New York Times article which eluded to me being a total control freak. I'm not really, well, maybe just a little.
