Barbie was my favourite toy growing up. I liked picking out her snappy outfits as much as the next person, but it was setting up elaborate houses for her from boxes and pillows and my nightstand drawers that tickled my fancy. Now that I think about it, I dont recall ever really playing with my Barbies (aside from one or two or twenty Ninja Turtle invasions from my brother), but I do remember spending hours painstakingly setting up the perfect home for Barbie, Ken, Skipper and Kelly. That was my idea of fun. I hope that makes it acceptable for me to be madly in love with these darling dollhouses designed by Miniio. Not only are these houses aesthetically pleasing, decked out in their stylin mid-century modern furnishings, but theyre also eco-friendly using locally sourced materials and sustainable resources. Now thats what I call a dream house. Barbie never had it so good!
The raw natural textures, liberal use of white, and modern architecture have me seriously envying Barbies new digs. She even has a Pantone chair! So jealous. Hey, Christmas (and my birthday) is around the corner Santa, if youre listening, my inner 8-year-old would be bouncing off the walls if I woke up to one of these in my stocking.
