About Olive Rose
I'm Charlotte, a wife and stay at home mum to my daughter, and the face behind OLIVE ROSE. Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and learn a little bit about how we began.
Many people have fond memories of playing with a family doll's house, and they often hold a special place in many people's hearts. In fact, my own grandparents created an amazing model doll's house and miniature grocery shop which fascinated me as a child. The name OLIVE ROSE comes from my Grandma Olive and my Granny Rose, two inspirational ladies in my family who have impacted me and many others throughout their lives.
It all started back in Sept '17 when I wanted to give my daughter a doll's house for her birthday. Many of the houses I saw were a bit too garish (for my taste!) or didn't look realistic. I wanted a modern house that fitted in with my own contemporary interiors, and also felt a bit more like a real house. Role playing is such an important part of any child's development, so why not do it in style?
I looked around but there wasn't a huge amount available in the UK, so being a crafty girl I thought I would give it a go! I found a second hand 1:16 scale 'fixer upper' online and set about renovating and designing the interiors. I caught the miniatures bug, and started making and selling a few things on ETSY, as well as working on some custom doll's house commissions. I saw a gap in the UK market, and OLIVE ROSE was born!
