Every little girl (and maybe even little boy) dreams of having their very own dollhouse. A miniature alternate reality where they make the rules. There could be a bathtub in the attic, a bed in the living room, a dining table in the bedroom. Anything goes. I was not one of those girls...at least not until now.

I came across this article in The New York Times of modernist dollhouses that are down to the last detail (even a recycling bin!). The aim here is not to create a dream place, but instead to show the reality, the grit, and the mess of living in the city. In fact, the furniture in the first dollhouse is directly modelled off of IKEA! By the look of these dollhouses it could turn into a pretty expensive hobby. Pretty gratifying though! Anyone want to get me a dollhouse? ;)
