a little different than barbie's dream house

I've never really bought into the idea that one buys Playboy for the 'articles', however, this one from a vintage 1960's issue may just change my mind. Well, kinda.

Now, I'll believe it when someone says they buy Playboy for the 'illustrations'.

Isn't this architectural section just to die for!!!! Look at the light!

And get a load of the master bedroom. This is certainly THE bachelor pad.

You can find the rest of the article here. No naked women, just an article with sweet illustrations...I promise!

I absolutely LOVE the dark background to these drawings!! I've always used hued paper for other artwork, but never for crisp interior illustrations... After seeing this post yesterday, I grabbed a pad of dark charcoal paper for my future perspectives!

If I would have seen this as a kid, I would have eaten it up...I love scouring the cruise ship plans my parents had at the house. Do you remember Suzy Homeaker? Richard Scary...loved those too.

Going back to look...lol

Best,
Michelle

What you said is so true, there is more things to explore about dreams but I'm not sure what are dreams that comes in the minds of people while living in this world.
