Here is another of the 10 custom dollhouses featured in the Designer Dollhouse Showcase at the Kaleidocsope Ball that helped to raise almost $1.8 million for UCLA Mattel Children's Discovery and Innovation Institute. This is the Brownstone House by Michael & Alexandra Misczynski and Estee Stanley. Click on the images to enlarge.
Michael and Alexandra Misczynski designed the first floor and exterior to include an entry way, gallery, library, and main stairway. The design is a rather formal Beaux Arts background with contemporary engagement. The library has a reclaimed interior from Jean Michel-Frank for Jean-Pierre Guerlain, circa 1935 and is furnished with pieces by Jean-Michel Frank. Credits go to Hideki Okuda & Raul Diaz for their contributions to the design.
Estee Stanley designed the 2nd and 3rd floors to include a living room and master suite in neutral colors with accents of turquoise and pink. The inspiration for the dollhouse was to create a neutral background filled with things we love. We wanted something eclectic and effortless. The resulting style is a relaxing blend of cultures and traditions creating a warm yet sophisticated space - a great balance to the brownstone architecture.
I love the lighting in the art gallery. I'd like to have the floor to ceiling mirrors in the living room. Below are more exterior shots.
