I saw this photo while leafing through this months Dwell magazine, and can’t get over it. How ingenius to plant a “play thing” smack in middle of the living room, where everyone can see it! I think it really minimizes the play-time factor while bumping up the fluidity of a adult/child home, by incorporating some (preferably beatific, or at least well done) “toys” into the everyday layout and decor. Gives me so many wonderful ideas….
This photo is of the Orpilla/Alexander living room, new residents who moved into a 1972 home built by David Boone in Orinda, CA. You can read more about the project/home, here.
