That's Dutch as in JD, Juniper's dad, of course, not the country. Though the Netherlands is known for the quality of their kid's design, I'm afraid the whole Bugaboo-pushing lot of them takes a backseat to our Dutch, who singlehandedly revived the lost 1970's art of plexiglass dollhouse-making and built a Mies van der Rohe-style doll house out of Herman Miller scraps and a Saturday morning in the shop:
All in all, the dollhouse cost me about $15 to make, including screws. But considering that my woodworking experience consists of about an hour watching the New Yankee Workshop and maybe half an episode of Bob the Builder, I don't think it turned out too bad. I love it when minimalist taste, thrift, and complete lack of craftsmanship all come together to form a happy trifecta.The best part, of course, is that it's a replica of their own Mies townhouse. It's like a license plate frame on a VW squareback that says "My other car is a Porsche"--and it actually is.
