Here is a new piece called Milan:

It is a room box in 1:12 scale and features wooden floors, built-in lit cabinets, beautiful stained-glass windows, and various lighting modes. 

Milan is a true collaboration, with whippets made by Designer Dog Miniatures, stained glass windows by Barbara Sabia, curtains and furniture accents by Wilson Santiago, chandelier by J. Getzan, and various handcrafted pottery and other items made by Red Dragon, Jason Feltrope, and Hairy Potter.

The room portrays what was originally a nobleman’s study, and later redeveloped into the front office of an upscale clothier. It features multiple modes of lighting.

A handheld remote control allows you to switch between the lighting of the (1) overheads, (2) built-in cabinets, (3) chandelier, (4) "outside" lighting, and three auxilary switches for your own lighting.

The frame is contemporary and understated and features museum glass--you can hardly tell it is there.


  1. Beautiful work of art!
    Thank you so much for sharing!
    Kind regards, Ilona

  2. The darker lit pictures really bring me back to the first time I visited a friend's house in Italy. The house was full of antique furnishings yet it was dark and moody. Almost like some kind of medieval habit of keeping lights off till the sun truly set. Strangely, as time has gone by, it seems Italians have a tendancy to light their homes with the lastest in technology. My mother and father-in-laws were in love with neon lighting in the kitchen and low level halogens in the rest of the house. Two light sources that I have come to hate. I suppose soon enough they'll be lighting everything with LEDs. But you really captured the importance of lighting to define the space. As always, top notch!!!

  3. Thank you! Pavluv, interesting about the Italian interiors. I love darkish interiors, however it usuallly doesn't work so well in small scale...
