To be at an exhibit called Pink Jungle (at NYC’s Makeup Museum) and then to be further surprised by the discovery that they have a Pink Ladies Room is to be a very happy girl indeed. So. Much. Pink.

The bathroom was also very clean and well-stocked with supplies. All good.

One of the most popular artifacts at the Museum of the City of New York is the Dollhouse of Carrie Walter Stettheimer (18691944) which weaves together the fashion and style of New York’s Gilded Age in miniature form. Stettheimer (sister of artist Florine Stettheimer) worked on the 12-room dollhouse over the course of twenty-five years, from 1916 to 1935, creating many of the furnishings and decorations by hand.

Styles vary from room to room, yet the wallpapers, furniture, and fixtures are all characteristic of the period following World War I. The dollhouse is particularly notable for its original, miniaturized works crafted especially for Stettheimer by renowned avant-garde artists of the 1920s, including a 3-inch version of Nude Descending a Staircase by Marcel Duchamp. From the Limoges vases in the chintz bedroom to the crystal-trimmed candelabra in the salon, Stettheimer infused her artistic sensibility into every detail of the house. The dollhouse measures approximately 28 inches tall, 50 inches long, and 35 inches wide.
