Toronto Houses by Kevin Morris

It all started by accident in the fall of 2012. Photographer Kevin Morris was exploring Deer Park, a neighborhood in Toronto famous for its Tudor and Colonial revival houses. Years spent as a resident in a "sea of concrete condos" only sparked further fascination. His goal—to show off the character, quirkiness, and beauty of everyday residential architecture in these neighborhoods. To date, he's documented nearly a hundred houses on his blog, House of the Day, with a year-end goal of 1000. Morris is currently working with fellow Toronto photographer Shane Fester on a new project called The Architecture of Empty debuting in May 2013, as part of Scotiabank's CONTACT Photography Festival in Toronto—the largest in the world.

Murphy's Law

Flashback to the early 1900s: After trying to woo an opera singer, but having to abide by the strict moral code of a woman entering a man's bedroom, William Lawrence Murphy invented the Murphy Bed, a bed that is attached at one side to store against a wall or inside of a closet or cabinet. With this clever invention, he was able to convert his bedroom into a parlor, which then allowed Murphy to entertain his guests (and get the girl?). Jet back to the modern world where these space-saving folding saviors have been a go-to fixture in small living areas across the globe. Click on the slideshow to view our five fold-down bed finds sourced from the Dwell archives.
