When the folks over at Curbed.com, a network of real estate blogs, decided to launch a national home decor site, they sent six shelter magazine editors a toy dollhouse complete with miniature furniture — ours even came with a diminutive doghouse. Daring Editor in Chief Newell Turner to redecorate it within a week, CQ accepted the challenge. And with help from contributing editor and Accessorator Judi Roaman (who suggested the inspiring style of photographer Laurie Simmons), the staff got to work designing via decoupage using only pages from March's "All About Blue" issue. See the results below!
