Commitment to Realism

In my internet travels I have come across many people interested in miniatures who have created some remarkably real houses, rooms and furniture.

I have been following the blog of a couple from America who have been making miniature houses for thirty years. Their blog is called “Small House Press”.

I am also a fan of a British couple, Mulvany and Rogers: http://www.mulvanyandrogers.com/ They make miniature models by commission. Their realism is flawless.

Another favourite of mine is a suite of miniature rooms that are on display in the Art Institute of Chicago known as the "Thorne Rooms" (after the lady who commissioned them in the 1930s).

All of these miniatures are incredible. It is the standard I hope to achieve one day!
