The NYT today referenced this intriguing blog and, yes, that's room in a doll house!

Besides being an avid MCM fan, I'm also a vintage Barbie fan/collector. I'd give anything to have a hip cool house to display my vintage Barbies! I've done many a Google search over the years and have run across some intresting doll houses. One, if I can find it again, was done by Eames himself. Can't imagine what that would cost to buy now-a-days. *shudders*

Great pic!
It may not look like it, but at the molecular level I'm actually quite busy.

Nice. Is that yours? Little start but has potential! It reminds me of the sorts of homes I used to build in my Sims game. Just like playing with a doll house, only virtual.

Here's a pic of the eames one I mentioned:

quote from the page:
Charles & Ray Eames Revell dollhouse (never produced but somebody has that prototype)

From this site:

But, Im partial to the simplicity of this one I found years ago. I've asked Mr. Wonderful if he could build it for me:

We cannot have a Modernist dollhouse thread without mention of Marx Imagination Dollhouse, the quintessential home for the aspiring Modernist in your family. Complete with modular design and Eames era furnishings.

I'm gonna keep on the run... I'm gonna have me some fun if it costs me my very last dime.
If I wind up broke up, well, I'll always remember that I had a swingin' time
