Kommer'u Closenough!

I'm pleased to invite you into the home of Sean Kommer'u, (Sean R. U. Coming) (a former agent) and Glenn Closenough (yes, it is the well known movie star) , who has moved into the old house of famous Danish architect Arne Jacobsen after they retired. It has been a big transition for them both, to downsize from the more extravagant surroundings they had been accustomed to.

 Don't be shy, just knock on the door, they are expecting you

Sean Kommer'u opens the door and greets us warmly; "so nice to meet you, please come inside!"

 You can hang your coat here, if you want to. Will you please follow me into the dining room/music room.
 This is where my wife spends most of her evenings.

Speaking of the devil, his wife Glenn Closenough enters the room, and eager to entertain as always, starts playing a piece by Mozart on the grand piano. This can take a while...I hope you like really like Mozart.


 Finally she stopped playing, and we can go upstairs.

The landing functions as Sean Kommeru's office, and is more to his taste, no frills here (just a lot of cars, it seems)

Do you want to see the bedroom as well?

Maybe you would like to visit the bathroom before our final room?

 Hope you like our living room.

"This is my favorite room", Sean Kommer'u says.  It has everything I need to relax, a comfy sofa, a bar and a big screen TV

You must be thirsty after seeing all these rooms, can I offer you something to drink, perhaps a Dry Martini?

Furniture by Lundby, Triang, Re-ment Petit Princess from Ideal and Minimii. Sofa by Cocco in Stavanger. Lamps, gold side table in livingroom, lego railing and bathroom shelf and some transformed Sylvanian pieces by me.
I'm sorry for my long absence, I'm just stopping by to show you this project I've been working on during these years in a Minimii 1:16 replica of (half) the home of Danish architect Arne Jacobsen  I bought back in 2011. (I didn't have the space for the full depth house) Sorry to say it seems they have closed their web-shop during the last year.

I won't blog as regular as I used to back in the days, but hope to update you on some of the things I've been working on since then. For those interested, I have also posted some things on my Flickr page

Have a nice spring!

Hi Helene!!!
I am so thrilled to see another wonderful post from you!!! The house tour was fantastic.... I LOVE your "people".... and their "pad" fits their personalities so well! I am glad they could "down-size" into this great retirement place!!! I can't wait to see more ! (But no hurry! It is just great to know you are still making minis! :))

Hi Betsy! Thank you so much for your quick and very nice comment! To be honest, I wasn't sure I would get any response at all, being away from the blog world as long as I
have :-) This project has been very fun to do. I thought these two should get the best interior possible and have collected items for them over all these year. I even spent over a year just pondering what taste each of them would have and how to combine them. In the end I just split the rooms between them :-)

When I began reading this post it didn't hit me until later, about the wife's name "Glen Closeeough". I got a good (albeit a delayed) chuckle from it.:D
The house is lovely both inside and out and it looks very comfortable too! You must have had fun arranging the furniture and accessories for each room and you've done it so well!
AND I absolutely LOVE the lighting!
I hope that your next post will be sooner rather than later - Welcome Back to Blogland Helene! :D

Thank you so much for your nice comment Elizabeth! I have enjoyed looking a little bit at your fantastic work in your blog, and I'm looking forward to check it out more! Yes, I always have great fun coming up with names and personalities for my dolls, even though some of the puns is easier to get if you understand Norwegian(Sean Kommer'u translates roughly to Sean R. U. Coming)
