Pinch of Pepper + dash of TinyFixation = Ultimate Dream Bedroom

Seriously pinch me, I must be dreaming. Hands down the best part of this ride is the friends I've made along the way. You all are the kindest lot I've ever met. My heart still skips a beat seeing all of this talent in one room. I've admired Pepper/Carol/pinchofpepper's work (mitchymoominiatures) and great tutorials for years now. When she was game for a swap I almost lost it. I mentioned I loved this table she made shown on flickr and that one thing there aren't enough of are modern wardrobes. What she sent was a package full of items I couldn't have dreamed up any better, all carefully crafted and meticulously packaged.

All of the dresser drawers slide open and fit perfectly snug.
The plastic/laminent fronts are all my favoite colors and I love the patterns. The design on the standing wardrobe couldn't be more me. The asymmetric circles are just the coolest. I finally have a closet!

And in this corner... On top of all of the other amazing goodies Meagan (TinyFixation) made and gave me, she was reading through my old posts and decided to make me these chairs I coveted as a surprise. I was shocked. Back in 2007, I bought these West Elm ornament chairs that would have been a perfect match to my dream headboard. Alas, I didn't check the size and they ended up being closer to 1:6 in scale. Over the years I've kept my eyes out for something similar, but had given up, thinking it wasn't meant to be. Meagan knocked me out with these two gorgeous chairs in 1:12 scale and I'm still seeing stars. The chairs look so delicate, but the construction is reinforced invisibly and they are suprisingly sturdy. Meagan has some serious mini skills. Now I have to make the headboard and bed to match. For now they work well with my favorite PRD Miniatures platform bed. I think they are the perfect accent to this Peppered room.

Pepper also made this incredible bookshelf that works vertically as well as horizontally. I love the light wood and how she balanced the boxes. The desk is even dreamier than I imagined. These pictures aren't the greatest, so I'll take more detailed pics and post later, but I love the floral print she created on the surface with stickers and spay paint (check out her post here). Now the lamp, oooohh the lamp. I love floor lamps. Working floor lamps, ooo la la, dream come true. I adore the detailing in this lamp and Pepper even sent batteries to light it up. Her lamps truly are art.

Here's a shot of the whole room, as I always like to see the big picture. And here is a detailed shot of the Mimobe linens from PRD Miniatures.

  1. I will be dressing up as the Hamburglar...consider these goods STOLEN! ;)

    Seriously, great room! And modern miniaturists need more battery powered lamps of awesomeness. I am not a fan of wiring. I need to be able to completely change the look of a room and not worry about lamps positioned in an odd placement. Know what I mean?

    Ahh well,...Mini On, baby!

    1. Thanks man!! I know what you mean, I can't stand wiring either as I never need a light in the same place twice. we are in serious need of more battery powered lamps. I found some great small led lights I thought I could crafty with, but they are not very bright and turned out to be a big disappointment. We'll just have to get to Pepper to make them all. :D
