We're back with our 2nd instalment of Mini Makers : Australia and today's a real treat for the eyes, (and I hope, you're doll's houses too!).
I stumbled across Tiny Bungalow's Instagram account during the Christmas break and was instantly drawn in by the cool, coastal vibes radiating out from the teeny house that was taking shape.
Born from a love of interiors, home styling and the desire to create something beautiful and enduring for her daughter, Tara has launched Tiny Bungalow, fast becoming the go-to for doll's house owners seeking to channel some of that effortless, coastal chic into their small scale projects.
The collection has been carefully curated with Tiny Bungalow's style ethos and emphasis on imaginative play at the forefront, with just a dash of luxe and the crazy, cute SonnyAngel doll's helping to showcase the mini wares.

In case the miniatures weren't enough for those seeking that laid back, coastal vibe , Tara is also the founder of real-life scale boutique, Tara Sea.
I can literally hear the waves from my desk and invariably will leave the mini domain with a wish list as long as my arm + renewed desire to hop on a plane!
Tara was kind enough to share a little with us on her inspiration and motivation behind the launch of Tiny Bungalow;
" For me I have always been creating and decorating so it felt like an amazing 'uh huh' moment when I decided I would love to dive into the world of miniature and dolls houses.
Now that I am a mother, nothing is more important to me than making something for my daughter that she can play with, bringing her hours of happiness and joy with imaginative play. I am super passionate about creating a brand that supports Australian made as much as I can, creating a lot of the pieces in the collection myself.
I wanted to create something that was different to what I had seen out there, as I felt there was a real gap in the market for something that brought about a coastal, grown up feel for mini interiors. I love the idea of styling and doing mini interior decorating that could be mistaken for life-size. Something that not only looked amazing when displayed in our homes but also something that children can play with and hopefully cherish for a lifetime.
I look forward to growing the brand and one day hopefully becoming a beloved name in imaginative play."
What a lucky little girl that get's to play with and treasure this doll's house, (and of course test those products for her Mama!) we're super excited to follow along with Tiny Bungalow's adventures.
Head on over for your vicarious fix of Sun, Sea and Surf and an injection of tropi-cool style!
