Tiny houses, great causes. Eight businesses around the greater Houston area will be graced with their own beautiful one-of-a-kind dollhouse display through the La Petite Maison 2023 Dollhouse Tour this month. Each dollhouse was created by a different designer with Houston ties — including Amanda Medsger, Bailey McCarthy, Hattie Sparks Collins and Paloma Contreras — and was built by award-winning architecture and construction firms Nadia Palacios Residential Design and ALAIR Homes.
The Dollhouse Tour starts this Monday, October 2nd. These beautiful dollhouses then will be available for bidding at the second annual La Petite Maison Gala, taking place October 12th at the Junior League of Houston. Proceeds will go towards A Shelter for Cancer Families (ASCF), which works to provide stability, shelter and support for families receiving cancer care in the Texas Medical Center.
Event chair and interior designer Alexandra Killion believes that the dollhouse tour has helped increase awareness of both the gala and of these talented design teams to a wider audience.
“I hope viewers see the uniqueness of each designer,” Killion says. “Everyone was handed the same house shell, but no two look alike. Every room in these homes is a work of art.
“The details are unbelievable, down to the hairdryer and lipstick on the counters of the dressing rooms, as people thought through real life homes and made them mini.”
