City Vibes

City Vibes

For this miniature scene, I wanted to show and really create the feeling of a home in a city skyscraper. It was also an opportunity to see what I could create in terms of lighting in a scene.

The home resides on three stories of a skyscraper with a living room, kitchen, master bedroom ensuite, a study, and a TV room. It is a rehab of my 'Haunted House,' which can be found HERE. Much of the miniatures were handmade by me using kits and miniature-related tutorials and 1-inch scaled furniture from measurements of current, actual-size retail pieces (i.e., the kitchen table/stools and the desk). Some other pieces were bought.

The window views were created from one high-resolution image so that the skyscrapers could appear more realistic with less lighting appearing on the upper floors. The walls with the windows and the middle walls are removable. This was done so I could place the lighting (fairy lights taped against the walls) behind each window view. The wall is then placed on the image. Gatorboard was used to create all the walls. I designed and printed the wallpaper on cardstock and the rugs were created from designs of retail rugs and printed on canvas paper.

This was such a fun project and an opportunity to create something beautiful. 😊
