French artist Marc Giai-Miniet‘s fascination with dollhouses sparked his Tiny Room Series, miniature art that forces you to take a closer look and admire the smallest details.

What is it about miniatures? They’re so appealing! Those tiny suitcases!!

Ooo… This is lovely. It reminds me of going to my grandmothers house when I was little. She would retrieve a tattered shoe box from the closet filled with her old doll furniture. It was a highlight of my visits. I loved examining all their details and reconfiguring imaginary rooms. When she died my mother passed them on to me. They are brilliant little cast iron pieces painted in Pepto Bismal pink and avacado greens. This year I found them on the Antiques Road Show website: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/roadshow/archive/200804A19.html. So cool to find out they are original Tootsie Toys and are from the 30′s!
Thanks for this post, Gabrielle. It evoked sweet memories for me and has given me some inspiration for interesting ways to display them!

Swoon! I am in love with the tiny details. Sometimes I think that spending my childhood obsessed with playing with small miniatures and building entire tiny villages contributed to my job doing jewelry design now and working with teeny, tiny pieces of metal.

These are simply magnificent. Thanks so much for sharing!

All I could think when looking at the photos was, WOW, he captured it real life so well. There is something fascinating about those little book cases.

These remind me of another artist I love – her name is Lori Nix, and she creates tiny dystopian worlds using dollhouse furniture and other minis. I don’t really know why pictures like this are so attractive, but they are! I would love to explore these tiny landscapes.
