SIMPly red

Yeah, Cocco and I are going to Paris and SIMP tomorrow! (And I believe Karl Edo is going as well.. "Paris vaut bien une messe"- "Paris er en messe verdt")
But despite being busy packing, he found the time to redecorate his kitchen and living room a little bit.
Here are some pictures of the result to enjoy while we're away :-) The big painting used to be in Spook House, but since red isn't very fashionable this year, he brought it home instead. Karl Edo really loves this painting.





The Dalmatian puppy belongs to Glenn Closenough, who was visiting Karl Edo when these pictures were taken.





Starry starry ceiling



The painting is "Red abstract, nr. 5" by Victor Pasmore. The other wallart is a postcard of the Norwegian opera house. The kitchen is by Lundby, redecorated by me, the dining chairs are re-ment. The sofa and chairs were recently mentioned in Carol's Leftcoastmini-blog (Thanks Carol!) and are by Lundby and so is the low shelf. The coffetable is by Fisher Price. Floor vases are from the "Barbie loves Jonathan Adler" set. Many of the accessories are beads. The ceiling lamp is made by me, inspired by Minimodernistas fabulous design. The floor lamp I believe is Lundby. I had three pieces of the same kitchen table (I believe they are by Barton), so I repainted the top of the most worn out table black. Underneath you can see both versions.

O Helene, won't most of them be that strange lady with her dolls? LOL :).

I love Karl Edo's house. That silver kitchen set is soooo him! And today when I was running, I saw the biggest Dalmatian ever. In 1:16, he would probably tower over your sofa !

I was going to email you about my close shave this morning! Will write when you are back :).

Hi Helene!
Ich mag das abstrakte rote Bild auch sehr! Und deine gestrichene Küche sowieso. Ich bin neidisch, dass du nach Paris fährst. Ich wusste gar nichts von dieser Messe. Ich hätte dich gerne auch dort getroffen, aber nun habe ich schon etwas anderes vor. Vielleicht im nächsten Jahr?
Oder in STavanger? Ist diese Messe auch jährlich?
Liebe Grüße
