Welcome to 862 Ocean View Drive

Please join Better Doll Homes and Fake Mini Gardens for a tour of one of the most interesting houses in Susan's collection.

862 Ocean View Drive is a delightful house, built in the second half of the last century and deliberately decorated by Susan herself.

The soaring, high-ceilinged living room is enhanced by a Le Corbusier white leather sofa and an Eames Pony Lounge Chair (both from Reac).

Opposite the Eames Lounge chiar is a lovely sea green Swan Chair, also from Reac. Between them sits a Petite Princess table by Ideal.

Across the room, on each side of the Lundby Stereo is a MacIntosh Hill House Chair from Reac.

Beside the sofa is an Eames Elephant Chair designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1945, and nearby is an Eames pony chair.

The agate coffee table and most of the vases are by Susan. Other items are as found.

The family room, just below the living room has a pair of Bibendum arm chairs (Reac), and another Eames Elephant.

The coffee table and Buddha are Petite Princess by Ideal, as is the tea cart by the china cabinet.

The red floor lamp is Renwal, the dining room suite and floor rug are Lundby. The wood cabinet, fireplace tools, cloisonne vase and glass side table are found objects. The black and white lamp is from Bozart.

The kitchen has a W. Germany green cupboard and fridge, a Lundby stove and chairs, and a found table.

The bathroom is by Bozart.

More tomorrow!!



  1. Hi Susan,

    I tried commenting earlier - sorry if you get this twice!

    Could you tell me the name of the picture hanging between your green and Eames loung chairs?

    I love all things MCM and that picture (and your house!) are terrific!

  2. Hi Neca;

    I'm sorry I don't know the name of the painting. I cut it out of an old Architectural Digest magazine, which I have since recycled.

    Thanks for your nice words about this house. I love it too. The reac furniture suit it perfectly.


  3. Pretty sure I have at least figured out the artist. I love! btw, if you get their catalog, it's full of a variety of styles in a size perfect for dollhouses!
