Look at the house below. How do you imagine its interiors? Do you see something truly original? Or do you judge the book by its cover?
Unfortunately I do. I saw a typical Swedish house built in the 1920s (1929 in turns out to be) with what I imagines was a typical Swedish interior. Just like the houses I’ve seen in hundreds during my life, i.e. decorated with a non-style combination of decade old IKEA-furniture and questionable assortments from flea sales.
However, I was wrong. The decorating is filled with empire, rococo and gustavian style.
The interior is over the top for me - I prefer my decoration more rusty and hearty - but I must admit that it’s pretty awesome to blend from different eras and truly surprise someone.
An old, and in my view outdated, ”fact” is that you can promote every product or service with a beautiful and barely clothed girl.
However, sex does sell, and gruesome death as well.
So I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that at least two coffin makers, Lindner and Cofani Funebri, promote their goods with calendars of half-naked girls.
While Cofani Funebri does a crappy job with their unsophisticated calendar, Lindner actually sometimes does make something right – at least they sometimes hire a damn good interior decorator for their shoots.
I promise, I don’t really fancy death, even though I’ve listened to death metal since I was 10, although I do fancy beautiful women, but it’s the decoration that I primarily adore with this shot. I could so live in that house. Except for that random coffin.
