Colette's new home!

She glanced around her living room and pinched herself to see if she was dreaming.

(Minimodernistas couch
Bozart lamp
child's rubber block, side table
German vintage chair
imported contemporary carpet)




As Colette signed the papers, the real estate agent opened a bottle of wine to toast the deal.

(Minimodernistas case bed and hanging pendant lamps
vintage American art deco chair
unknown wooden chest came with Strombecker furniture
Bozart art and vases )








Colette sat out on the grass terrace and looked around her and sighed. Then she got out her cell phone, made a donation to Haiti and said a prayer for all the people in need. Living in California, Colette knew "There but for fortune, go you, go I", lyrics by Phil Ochs


(antique German Korbi wicker setee, chairs and table possibly made by Karl Schreiter Co. 1920's Germany, from Curly Creek Antiques. Bozart wooden sculpture from Kalidescope House collection, contemporary imported asian garden stool side table)




Apologies for the cramped and poorly lit shots. I set it up on my bedroom floor to immediately start playing with it and need to put it in the right spot with wider shots and natural light.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Wes.

Congrats to your new house! It's on my favourite-list since I know it.

Thanks. I am trying to think of how to make it look lived in, like how you drop a purse on a chair. C

I would suggest: just look around in your room? Is there a newspaper on the table? Put one in the dollshouse too. Is there a Coke on the desk? Is there a cat behind the stove? Is there a mess in the kitchen? Put it in the dollshouse too.
Good luck!
