With Barbie dollhouse designs, most of the time it starts and ends with you. What you want determines what you get. Think about the different ways you relate to items in your home. Most of the time you will find that who you are will influence any area of your life, including what you find for your Barbie doll, as a collector. In particular, her new dollhouse.
Who is Barbie to you?
Yes, who is Barbie and how do you relate to her dollhouse?
- Barbie doll house plans may be the most creative plans out there. Mainly because of the way that Barbie has been promoted by her creator. We have all seen Barbie dolls or are familiar with them. She’s really been there, she’s done that, in almost every possible situation.
- Many children find her endearing and imaginative. Not to mention us adults. It’s no joke, children and adults can be carried away for hours imagining Barbie in her world. Just seeing a child with her and you realize that.
- A key question to ask yourself when starting a new dollhouse plan is: What is it about her that makes us partly relive our childhood so easily? Maybe it’s the way she reminds us so much of ourselves. You think? Or is it that she reminds us of who we would like to be? Someone who has style, confidence or success?
- Possibly the person who created it was partly thinking of themselves as a child. And possibly what would entertain them. And this is precisely the state of mind to claim if you intend to make an original Barbie dollhouse blueprint for yourself or someone else. What do you have inside of you to offer this challenge?
- Also, Barbie has had almost every style you can imagine. But if you have never created for her, then she has never had your style because no two people create alike. Therefore, the atmosphere is ripe for you to exhibit its design for the benefit of yourself or others.
So Barbie is for all these reasons a very personal fashion doll.
But how do you create an original dollhouse for Barbie?
Step 1: Know what you like or don’t like…
Imagine for a moment that you are looking for a new home for yourself. So, what would you look for? What are your likes or dislikes? Start listing all these ideas. Then, draw each room in this dollhouse as you see it.
Possibly Barbie would want what you want. We always tell people to live their own lives and not try to live their lives in their children. Well, here’s one area where we could quite possibly live up to our own expectations.
Yes, whatever you want for yourself, try to give it or get it for Barbie. In miniature.
Imagine your perfect kitchen, living room, bathroom, bedroom, study, rec room or laundry room. What have you always wanted in these areas?
Yes, it is quite difficult to buy these kinds of designer goodies for Barbie. Yes, the assortment is quite plastic, isn’t it? We understand the difficulty of trying to find never-before-made items that just make you want to get your hands on them.
Simply because they rarely exist.
But the good news is that this is where you come in. No two people believe the same. So stand out with what’s inside of you and create all the plans and items you want and are passionate about.
Step 2: Study the techniques and designs of others…
Today with the internet, studying other people’s techniques and designs is relatively easy. We truly have the world at our fingertips.
So start by searching online for various ideas. Study the way people have put together their designs. Make a list of the websites you find and save them as your favorites.
Some search terms to use are: Barbie dollhouse(s), fashion dollhouse(s), dollhouse(s), dollhouse(s), or dollhouse(s). These terms may seem similar in nature, but each one will bring some different results than the last. Remember to search for singular and plural terms. You can recover a particular gem that you did not know about before.
Also deliberately look for people with talented trades in your area. Even if it’s someone who works on human-sized local construction projects. They know the “how to’s” of construction and can give you tips to steer you in the right direction.
Also, if you have a dollhouse maker in your area, it would be a great advantage to go and observe over a period of time what and how they are doing what they do. Ask them if it’s possible to hang out multiple afternoons. It never hurts to ask.
So if you’re allowed, take lots of notes (don’t waste your time or theirs) and be sure to ask them nicely if they mind me asking a bunch of questions. Most people will love to share with you. However, with that being said, some will not. So ask permission to ask them questions about their processes.
Online or offline dollhouse workshops, courses or kits also give you valuable insights into the instruction process. So don’t forget them either. They could be the missing element in your quest for learning.
Also, in your study of other people’s techniques, don’t forget to search online book sites for old and new books available. Books are one of the most amazing idea generators/motivators out there. So study the book deals and write down everything you like that you see.
Then, with all your creative notes in hand, start forming your own Barbie dollhouse blueprints. You’ll be amazed at what’s inside of you that you need to share with the world of your Barbie doll.
Step 3: Get down to business…
After you complete all your searching and exploring, start asking yourself questions about your design.
- Is something missing from my design?
- What is it that makes this really mine?
- Should I ask the professionals for their opinion?
- Have I looked at all angles?
- Should something that just doesn’t make sense be removed?
- Do I start the dollhouse as a unit or do I work in each room separately?
- How much will it cost to design to build?
- Do I see difficult areas that need to be reworked?
- Have I overcomplicated my design?
- And so on until you are satisfied with all the results of your plan and really feel complete.
As you finish this Barbie dollhouse plan, be sure to take a deep look inside of who you are. Bring together all the uniqueness of the interior to help make this design your own. Within you is the only way to make this an original and real design for Barbie.
It’s all those little extra personal touches you add that make it all come alive and work for you. So if you thought, “hey, how about we make Barbie a sunroom my way,” but never, then you’ve already lost something of value.
So never exclude your shape, your ideas or who you are in any design process. Your work will be much richer thanks to it.
