My former dreamy room



This is the former room where I used to work, eat burgers with Monchéri on the long table, share a meal with friends and make my paper things.
It was rarely tidy as it is on that picture, mostly covered with what I call my gentle paper mess.
Now, in the new house, I have a proper workshop where I hanged the same chandeliers and put my same old handmade Japanese wallpaper but it doesn't have the same feeling and funnily I am nostalgic of my former work room.
Maybe it's because I like the idea to work a room which looks more like a living room than a workshop.
Hope I can show you soon how I will transform my new workshop !

Mon ancien bureau...avec la longue table où on s'asseyait pour manger des hamburgers avec Monchér, dîner avec des amis mais surtout qui me servait de table de travail.
Autant dire, qu'elle était toujours couverte de papiers, un petit foutoir sympathique qui me plaisait bien.
Maintenant, dans la nouvelle maison, j'ai un atelier, un vrai attitré, où jai mis les mêmes lustres, mon papier japonais toujours, mais c'est drôle, j'ai la nostalgie de cette pièce.
Je crois que dans le fond j'aime bien travailler dans une pièce qui a plutôt l'air d'un salon.
J'espère bientôt pouvoir vous montrer la transformation de mon nouvel atelier !


Talking about room and paper, I really wanted to show you this totally dreamy room, entirely made up with...lottery tickets.

À propos de pièce et de petits papiers, il faut absolument que voyiez cette pièce totalement inouïe, conçue avec..... des billets de loterie

It is the brilliant work of Brooklin based artists couple Lauren Was and Adam Eckstrom, known as Ghost of a Dream. All items from walls to furniture and paintings are made of lottery tickets. Incredible isn't it ?

C'est le travail fabuleux d'un couple d'artistes basés à Brooklin, Lauren Was et Adam Eckstrom, connu sous le nom de Ghost of a Dream. Tous les éléments depuis les murs jusqu'aux meubles et objets sont conçus avec des billets de loterie. Incroyable non ?

Yes, I see what you mean about your former room, very light and comforting, lived in lovely. I am wondering where all of those lottery tickets were found! That is astonishing- and put to such wonderfully gorgeous use!
French class- the second one last night- more maths! Making me not like French so much until I come to your blog and can sort of read and make sense of it with the translation up top..Love it- language, such a puzzle. My French instructor is not French, she is Hungarian, I wonder what sort of accent we are learning?

I love the second picture...especially the table runner "lucky..." hahaha :-D

As for the "lottery room", it looks fantastic, but would I need to win the lottery first to afford all those tickets...? Hmmmm...

Have a lovely end of week, Love from London x
