Kaleidoscope House Living Room Set ... I got it!


Finally accomplished my quest for the Jasper Morrison sofa/living room set ... just in time to 'gift' myself for Christmas. The white TV stand, shelf unit and vases are from The Dolls House Emporium. I made the wood side table myself with pieces of precut wood, glue and stain. Accessories are a combination of Re-ment, ebay and miniature show finds. Looking at my shots, I really need to learn how to use the camera properly as one of my New Year's resolutions. One of the pics is taken with flash on and other off. Too bright and too dark - can't decide which way I prefer
Au contraire to the room here, we rarely watch CNN at home. Our real life TVs are usually tuned into TLC , HGTV, Family, etc.

I found Posie gets Cozy's post on how she takes her pictures invaluable when I was first starting out: http://rosylittlethings.typepad.com/posie_gets_cozy/2006/01/how_i_take_pict.html

The best thing I ever did was take my camera off automatic and onto the manual setting.

Hope this helps!

Sorry, me again.

Just checking you know about the macro setting for close up work? It's the button with the tulip on it...

(Sorry if I'm teaching you to suck eggs!)

Just catching up after the Holidays & New Yr craze ...

Annina - Tks for the compliment. I am loving your 'IKEA' furniture stuff.

MC - I know. No offense to my own country but I put our PM's image, most ppl will be like 'who's that?'.

Shopping Sherpa - Tks for the tip/info. One of the pics was taken using Auto and the other was Manual ... maybe I need more lighting around the shelf then do the Manual thing.

The room looks great! And where did you get the magazine holders to the left of the tv from?

vwong said...

AF4564 - The magazine holder is part of this discontinued Re-ment room set which comes with a Swan chair, side table, floorlamp, etc. FYI, there is currently an ebay listing of this set which ends on Jan 16th (item #270328110259).

Congrats on your ebay score. I'm coveting one of these sets myself.

I'm not liking my current options with modern sofas, etc.

I bid on this set a few times in the last year, always to lose at the last minute... I think I covet the coffee table most of all. Anyway, it looks great!
