When she was designing her family's Ormond Beach, Fla., home, Melissa Kearney says she and her husband asked the kids what they wanted. As a result, their 3,600-square-foot Cape Cod includes a couple of secret passageways, an idea inspired by the "Harry Potter" series. A planned guest bedroom was scuttled to make room for two larger bedroom suites for the kids. The closet in 12-year-old Tia's bedroom is fronted by a vintage armoire door, inspired by the one in the book "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe"; 10-year-old son Ethan's "futuristic"-style bedroom has a closet with a secret passageway to a different room in the house.
Secret passageways are not futuristic. Make up your fucking mind.
