They do tell :
"...were conceived by Mrs. James Ward Thorne of Chicago and constructed between 1932 and 1940 by master craftsmen according to her specifications."
Thorne Miniature Rooms | The Art Institute of Chicago

What a pity I wasn't into dollhouses when I visited Chicago a looooong time ago ... would have gone there

Lovely rooms and they look as if they are big rooms as the furniture doesn't look crowded.

It's a great book to have and although it's nice to see pics on line, it's even better holding the book itself. If you ever wanted to recreate something like that in your own house, the book is much easier to have to on hand.

There are some really good ideas in there. If you haven't already got it, I'd say it's well worth it.

I agree, Irene !
I´m into the idea of creating a "false" staircase at the back of the room(box) leading to another upstairs room ...just have to work out how best to do it
