The Ingenious Panorama House Of South Korea

If only all homes could look like this one. Designed by South Korean architect Moon Hoon, this South Korean abode is more multi-functional than Windex. In a single room (designed primarily for children), you can find tiered seating, built-in bookshelves, a home cinema, and a playroom that even includes a slide. To ogle at this fluid, futuristic and fun design, visit Laughing Squid.

The Secret Life Of Hollywood Toys

It in in “A Little Princess” where Captain Crewe says that when we leave the room, our dolls come to life; it is Daniel Picard who captures them. Taken in his hometown of Ottawa, Canada, Picard’s 1:1 Toy series depicts the not-so secret lives of classic children’s toys ranging from Batman to the Terminator, thus convening the real and the imaginary in one aesthetically pleasing photograph. To reminisce some more over your own dolls’ hangouts, head over to My Modern Met for a fuller gallery.
