Put a stop to child porn! Or: Get those kids out of my shelter mags

shelter porn: n. Images and text that glorify or fetishize high-end architecture, home furnishings, and interior design

Why do modern shelter-porn mags (ahem, Dwell, ahem) have so many damn kids in their pages? It’s like every hipster couple undertaking a tin-and-plywood remodel of their brownstone has at least two urchins underfoot.

Keep the trikes off those burnished concrete floors. Spare me the Marimekko-inspired prints. For god’s sake, no more cleverly constructed bunk beds. I’ll take my stark interiors straight up, please, no kids sloshing about inside.

Dwell, kids biking in house

Dwell, kids playing

Dwell, kids in bath

Dwell, kids on floating bed

Dwell, girl in chair

Dwell, kids outside

Dwell, girl on bed

Dwell, kids and bunk bed
