Doll House









1937









1938


One of my favorite playthings growing up was my doll house. Mine was admittedly very different from this one, but it is fascinating to see such a design meant as a children's toy. Mid century modern design is not inherently depressing but it also isn't the sort of romantic aesthetic one might expect from little girl's imagination.

Aniek Meeldijk



































This is the work of designer and ceramic artist Aniek Meeldijk. She often collaborates with Niek de Snoo. I took these images from her blog, but also take a look at her website because she makes beautiful and fascinating objects. She makes molds from and inspired by non-ceramic materials and uses them to create ceramic forms that are reinterpretations of the classics.
