Gorgeous case and collection!
I have a spare bedroom designated for my dolls with one glassed in doll cabinet for display that can feature up to 20 dolls at a time. I don't like the look of crowded shelves where the dolls are all jammed in together and you can't see the ones in the back. I prefer to show a few dolls and some furniture on each shelf. I occasionally swap out different dolls. Right now I have some of my Silkstone and repro Barbies on display. Most of them have been redressed in outfits made by me or by other artists. There are only two wearing their original outfits in this picture.
In the same room is a double closet where I keep all my dolls and outfits. I have mostly Silkstone, Barbie repro, and various Fashion Royalty dolls, plus some 16" dolls in the top of the closet.
Here is how it looks with one side opened at top and bottom.
The narrow container drawers hold up to six dolls each and then the deeper container drawers hold doll clothes, sorted by type of doll. On the right side of the closet (not shown) there is more of the same but also some cardboard storage boxes stacked in the corner with more clothes (OOAK made by me and other artists).
Then I have my furniture and other accessories stored in the master bedroom in the back of a bigger walk-in closet. The closet makes a turn to the right at the back (over the stairway going down to the basement - there are two long shelves). Everything is in large plastic storage totes, organized by type of furniture and you can see through the sides of the totes what's inside.
That's how I do it. Thanks for looking!
