I'll bring the paintball guns, you bring the ketchup


Behind this bland exterior lurks...


... the best darn room for a toddler's birthday party ever! Yeah! Somebody cue up the Dan Zanes CD, it's time for Pin the Magnetic Tail on the Whatever the Hell that is!

What is that? I'm seriously destabilized by that. Did they dump their meds, or did I? I didn't even know I was taking meds either.
Oh my.

Mmm, sparkly, like Dr.Zhivago snow scenes. Is there a link? Wanna see more Nort? Nord? Norg? decor.

Priest Pad?

Sara said...

Whoops, sorry, FonHom! I'll dig a link out and add it. The rest of the apartment is pretty dang excellent, too -- I'm saving the kitchen for another day.

Ooh, they like lots of white and shiny things!

They obviously don't have small children or shedding pets.

Please tell me it's a shrine to the Ice Queen from The Chronicles of Narnia? Isn't that why she is presiding over the mantlepiece? But, I never knew she preferred red and yellow dishware! Fascinating...or something.

Kitchen by Ikea? (I like it.)

Mama T said...

Man, that's the main room in the place too. Imagine having no respite from all that, um, glitter? Gloss? I'm at a loss (oooh, I made a rhyme!)

Angela said...

Okay, I'm crazy, but I LOVE IT

Cellar Door said...

I suspect vampire hunters.

I suspect it's The Pope's little vacation getaway.

Sarah, I'm surprised you didn't jump at the chance to comment about the statue:

"Where's the bathroom, you ask? Why, it's right here."

Jano said...

Oh, my! White and shining armor!

Land of shimp said...

Whoa. That's a serious chandelier. What does it illuminate the meaning of life?

That thing actually creates a glare while it is turned off.

Callie said...

What really completes this room for me is fringe on the couch-thing. Like someone thought, you know this room needs something else, we have chandeliers and terrifying wall art, but something is missing . . . what could it be . . . ah yes, massive amounts of fringe on an unidentifiable, couch-like, lounge thing.

Brilliant

Angel said...

Um... but there's no bedroom...

I guess it's a studio? If so, be careful when you wake up in the middle of the night not to bash your head on that GIANT chandelier...

Anonymous said...

I'm confused... there doesn't appear to be a bedroom in this place? What kind of an apartment is this?

Marie said...

I have to admit, I really like this (studio) apt. It's nicely decorated for such a small space...but then again, my taste has been brought into question many a time...

bitbot said...

Why isn't there a picture of the Bad?

Oh wait, it's ALL bad.

burhanistan said...

Is that statue of Buddha used as a coat/hat rack?

K. said...

Looking at the pictures made me a little dizzy. So. Many. Mirrors.
The tub, however, is fantastic. Imagine all the time you can't waste because you won't--rather, can't, unless you're comfortable with your knees up your nose--take a soak!

graceco said...

I'm glad they don't advertise it as an eat-in kitchen because the only people who could eat in there are toddlers. So after lunch they can swing from the mega-chandelier!

I also think that thing cleverly disguised as a couch along the right wall of the living room is actually a single bed. I'm going to be in that situation as soon as my daughter wants her own room. I'm planning to sleep in the dining area of our kitchen. One of these days, we gotta get a bigger place.

Babs said...

Holy crap, a mirror facing the tub?! I'd never bathe again.

Stuart said...

"Gee, Skipper, Mr. and Mrs. Howell's hut is really nice."

Susan said...

Did you notice the cars outside? I bet the gold one belongs to this owner.

I really like the dishes in the kitchen. Anyone know where I can get a set of those?

Anonymous said...

The kitchen and bathroom are very typically Scandinavian, but the rest of it looks like it fell from some kind of bizzaro-world where giant Buddhas, mirrors, crystal chandeliers and metallic modern art go together. Very strange.

UdonNoodles said...

I can't believe this is in Norway. It's so un-Scandinavian! I'm gobsmacked by the complete lack of streamlined design and blond wood!

Land of shimp said...

@Callie: I very much fear that the fringed thing is the bed! I'd never be able to sleep with Gigantico, the Light Fixture as my roommate, but there you have it.

@Babs: ROTFL. Isn't that the truth??

if you'll note the last picture has a diagram of the floorplan. In Norwegian bathroom is apparently spelled BAD. And yes, yes it was.

im with angela- compared with alot of the american - brown shag rug, beige bad linolium(sp i know)plywood walls - this place is fun in a kooki way- they obviously were careful with color evident by as the much discussed and cheerful kitchen. frankly- if i lived in a boring giant apt bldg- a bit of fantasy- crazy chandelier included- would be a welcome thing!

Jenny Reiswig said...

I so wish more American real estate listings had floor plans. Seriously, why do they not?

PugsRule said...

I'm with Angela; I quite like it! :)

"Pin the magnetic tail on Whatever the hell that is"... That made me laugh. I seriously want to use that line today. xD

Dramalamaen som lever livet said...

The fringy couch-thing is the bed. It's not a studio, in many Norwegian modern apartments living room and bedroom ar in one. (My apartment included, although it's not that modern anymore and has a small half wall thingy to hide the bed behind.)

Mary said...

WOW that is awesome!
