See The Garden Pavilion transformed into a colourful beach shop!

June 15th, 2012

Here at Dolls’ House HQ we were delighted to see our Garden Pavilion kit take shape in The Dolls’ House Magazine as a wonderfully colourful beach shop.

The magazine’s editor, Christiane Berridge, had been itching to get to work on the DHE small project for some time… and found a very good excuse in time for their July issue deadline.

The Garden Pavilion Kit was our Creative Competition build for 2011 but is clearly still providing inspiration for some imaginative projects.

Christiane said: “I don’t always have time to make miniatures so it was really rewarding to take a break from my editorial duties to create this beach shop.

“The Garden Pavilion kit from The Dolls House Emporium had come into the office a while ago and was just waiting to be made up – I had all the ingredients that I needed!

“With limited time to get it all together to meet our printing deadline I was pleased that the kit went together quickly and easily. With some additional props – the scooter from ELF Miniatures, and shop fittings from Delph Miniatures, deckchairs from Seaside Miniatures it was soon ready.

“We had hoped to actually take the shop and the camper van, featured on our cover from the Mini Model Shop, down to the beach for a real location shoot (with a picnic of course).

“But we just couldn’t get a sunny day! So with some digital trickery we used a photograph that I had taken at West Wittering beach in West Sussex last summer.”

The Garden Pavilion offers a wonderful starting point to decorate and dress however you wish

“We’re thrilled with this issue – currently on sale, check out www.thegmcgroup.com – though we are still hoping for another excuse for that day at the seaside!”
