娃娃屋

最近我常在一户人家的房子拍戏。那是一间挺古老的房子,坐落在市区附近。主人的其中一间房的玻璃柜里摆了很多小小的收藏品,都是”迷你“型的,比如有点心、碗碟、工具等。后来我才发现原来这些都是娃娃屋的道具。

我想她一定是从很久以前就开始收藏这些玩意儿,要不然也不会摆的满满的。真的是一个蛮有趣的嗜好!尽管如此,我相信这样的收藏不只需要时间,花费也不少,而且也需要有空间展示出来。如果用很实际的角度去看,这个嗜好又占位,又难清理,而且也不实用。但我想这也不一定,因为有些古老娃娃屋的道具现在可能也不容易找了。

One of our filming locations was a house located off Chancery Road. The owner is a fond collector of miniatures. I noticed that her glass cabinets were full of miniature items ranging from food to crockery to kitchen utensils, appliances and many more. They were actually meant to be dollhouse accessories except that there wasn’t a dollhouse.

To accumulate such a vast collection, she must have started this hobby since a long time ago. It looks like a tedious (and expensive) hobby because not only would she need space for display, she would need to also design the way the items are placed. From a practical point of view, this hobby is not only time consuming, but it’s difficult to maintain as well. Imagine cleaning the cabinets and moving the small items one by one! But then again, what seems like child play could have its value in the vintage collectibles, such as the item in the picture below.

这样

这样的道具也该有它的收藏价值吧!

那我们不说单单收集道具好了,如果要创造一个完整的娃娃屋,没有一点创意,耐心,和对建筑和室内设计有一定的了解,那是不容易成功的。

所以虽然看上去不怎么实用,却又是另一门学问哦!

Building a dollhouse is a skill that requires patience, creativity as well as knowledge of architecture and interior design. So while it doesn’t have any practical value, its value really lies in its completion.

The dollhouse of Queen Mary. In the 1920's, master crafstmen built the doll house for Queen Mary. It is built to a scale of 1:12 and everything in the house is built to perfection, including the miniature lights. The palace includes paintings, state rooms, servants quarters and a garage. Stated to be the most famous doll house in the world.

多精致啊!Imagine the time spent! There are even mini clothes (bottom right hand section) hanging from the open closet!

我很喜欢这样的房间设计!I love the lace and wired furniture in this dollhouse bedroom.

还有早餐呢!多用心的布置!Breakfast included! Such dedicated design, truly impressive!

有多少人是在茶几上用电脑的?和现实生活中差不远吧。The placement of items on the coffee table is so realistically messy! 🙂

就连垃圾桶里得垃圾也少不了!Notice the trash in the trashbin!

小凳子和肥皂都是很贴心的设计!This one even has the non-slip bathroom mat!

娃娃屋有很多种。我在这里和大家分享的比较多是属于西式的设计。日本也蛮流行娃娃屋哦!

Dollhouses come in all sizes, some are good to be placed on the table, while some can be as tall as a child. The pictures I shared over here are mainly derived from Western designs. Check out the Japanese-style dollhouses!

不是每一间娃娃屋都要象一间房�,比如这个书柜娃娃屋。A bookshelf dollhouse is simpler in design and probably easier to create.
