Caitlin Wilson Creates a Replica of Her Dallas Home | Dollhouse Beautiful | House Beautiful


– Sometimes good things
come out of mistakes, because it’s actually really cute. (upbeat music) – [Narrator] Welcome
to Dollhouse Beautiful. – Hi, I’m Caitlin Wilson of Caitlin Wilson Design
based in Dallas, Texas. I am more of a traditional, classic style. I really focused on finding
kind of heirloom pieces. My color palette is very
strong, pink and blue. It looks a lot like my own house. I love them looking real and authentic, and I guess it depends on
where you’re gonna put it. But for me, my daughter would want this right next to her bed. All right, well, I’m ready
to roll up my sleeves and get to work. (text whooshing) I think I had a dollhouse, but I was the youngest of four children, and so I was not neglected, but I think the only thing
I had was this wooden, unfinished house that I would decorate with Christmas lights at Christmas, and I played with Trolls in it. (giggles) So that’s not very classy
or glamorous at all, but yeah, I had a form of a dollhouse. (lively music) I wanted the top floor,
which is kind of like a loft, I’m kind of imagining it
as my daughter’s room, like a playroom. We’re doing grand stripe paper in blush. Luckily, I had an extra sofa
that I was maybe planning on putting up here if there was room. But it was really hard to get
the wallpaper in those eaves, so I just took out the little cushion and popped it in the window seat, mostly to hide some of the seams, ’cause those stripes were really hard. And I’ve actually installed this wallpaper in the real scale, my
wallpaper, in a playroom, and so I loved the way those lines come together in that playroom, but now I need to call my installer that did it in the playroom in real life and tell him thank you so
much, and I’m so sorry, ’cause it was really difficult
lining up those stripes. (text whooshing) The blue and white in the bathroom feels really
fresh and traditional. (lively music) The master actually was supposed
to be different wallpapers, but it all ended up
working out really well, because I feel like this feels
like more of a master paper. This is our newest collection. This is the Mayfair Floral, and then I wanted to monogram
the bedding and it looks cute. (text whooshing) The kitchen was the jumping off point. The French blue kind of
created the whole scheme for the entire house, and that’s kind of how I design anyway. You always start with the
room that’s most important. We looked around at some inspiration, you know, dollhouses on
Instagram and online. So I found this darling Instagram. It’s called Life in a Dollhouse, and so we contacted her and wanted to see if she would help us a
little bit with this, and she was so excited, and of course, they were so great. And she’s like, “Okay,
well, we really need “to get to work on this kitchen.” I get the pictures after the weekend, and I’m not kidding,
amazing woodwork carpentry, and so I’m thinking this is
just this legit business. It’s just starting on Etsy. Come to find out, she is 13, and she has a 3D printer, and she is going to be so successful. I mean, she kept offering to help me make little
lemons for the lemon trees, and I mean, is so amazing. So thank you so much to Ella
from Life in a Dollhouse. Then in the living room, I started with a Highland
Floral wallpaper, which is one of my favorites, and it’s really easy ’cause
it has so many shades of blue, which made it a really
great way to combine a lot of different shades of blue. That’s something that I really love to do in my own interiors is
create that kind of layered but not too matchy matchy. Obviously, blue and white is one of my favorite palettes to use. There’s lots of different
shades in this room. I knew everyone would love
that in the living room for all the guests that are gonna come. You want everyone to
love the room they’re in. (upbeat music) I love it, I’m so happy with it. It was fun to just kind of last minute switch
some things around too. So there were definitely
some happy surprises that worked out pretty well. And the upstairs is probably
my favorite room actually. I love how it came together. I actually have beds similar
to this in my own house, and so it feels a lot
like my daughter’s room, which is really sweet. Feels more sentimental and
has a lot more meaning, because I actually made it. I think I will make one for my daughter. I hope you enjoyed seeing
my dollhouse come together. Thank you so much for
watching Dollhouse Beautiful.

Amazing!!! I had this dollhouse awhile ago and currently have the blue chairs which I got from Oakridge hobbies. I believe the beds are from there as well. Ella and this designer are rocking awesome!!! Where can I get the kitchen light fixtures?
