Interior Ideas

Its not often that my blog reading and my academic ideas merge but this week Irene at Bloesem(my favorite) was discussing Li Edelkoort's prediction that the "house" will be a personel "museum". From my research this is not a new idea, it perhaps started in the 17th century with the "Wonder Room". It was a room in an estate or castle that was reserved for the display of the objects and wonders of the world that the court explorer would bring back. I like to call this a "Collected Space" and anyone from Sir John Sloan-the 18th century British architect to Ray Eames have made spaces like this.
