Architects’ wives may struggle to maintain their minimalist homes to Dwell standards.
Once children come into our lives, the house fast becomes cluttered with stuff.
Spending money on storage cubes, cases, trunks, bags, boxes, baskets always appeals as a quick fix solution (the only true solution is an overnight stay – without children – in a chic hotel). But as one carts these into the house it dawns on us that we are bringing even more stuff into the house. Stuff packed away into new stuff is still stuff – and it clutters the house shamefully.
One solution is to transform some of the children’s stuff into art. Hans Bellmer provides inspiration for interesting transformations of dolls.
For those who find artfully arranged dolls a little disturbing, this toy car installation might hit the spot.
