Re: Decorating


Start by having a plan and choosing a small building. You can find examples of decorated SF buildings on Ebay UK.

You'll need to choose a nice paper or dollshouse wallpaper, and makes templates of each wall, then mount the paper with double sided sticky tape.

I have chosen to leave my floors without new flooring as I prefer the floorboard look. I am looking for a few nice rugs for my living rooms at the moment. Pity you can't get SF ones.

Good luck!

Re: Decorating


You can get rugs cheap enough from Ebay.

I would not advise doing what I did at the start. I purchased some wallpaper that was printed on adhesive label paper. It was an absolute nightmare to use. I now use very thin card as wallpaper. I also find that curtains adhere better to it.
Hope this helps. emoticon

Re: Decorating


Create a mood board on Pinterest-if you were creating a bookstore add pictures of libaries and books.
Also-study the pictures!

There is at least one SF carpet-

I saw the same one on Rinkya not too long ago. I would love to have it but between the cost of the carpet, Rinkya commission, sellers fee and shipping it would've been more than I would spend for a carpet for my own house.
