Green Pineapple

Nannan Zhang’s Green Pineapple combines two of my favourites – modular buildings and Friends – beautifully!   What immediately caught my eye was the clever pineapple, which is a focal point on the building.  Other great features that drew my eye were the lamp post, spherical lamps on the ground floor, stove top and the corner cabinet in front of the bed.


There are too many features to list them all, so make sure you check out Nanna’s flickr stream for more images of this beautiful building.


Emma’s Place

Emma’s Place, which is the second of the buildings for my daughter’s Friends layout, houses the Butterfly Beauty Shop, Emma’s Fashion Design Studio and Karate Class. It’s a modular building to make it easy to separate the rooms for playing.

I’ve been making some buildings for my daughter’s Friends’ layout in an attempt to keep the layout from taking over the dining room table.  The first of these buildings is a set of stables with an upstairs apartment, which combines the design elements of Olivia’s house and the colour scheme of the Friends stables and summer riding camp:
