just an odd post

I realised that I can win at poker if I'm playing with three Pinocchios.

I really should start a blog on home renovation but a couple of things come immediately to mind:
1. I won't have the time and energy to maintain it.
2. I will have the time and energy to do it after the renovation is over.
3. If the renovation is over, I will not have the enthusiasm to start it, much less maintain it.

Why is the original Tom Dixon's mirror ball lamp so expensive and even a reproduction is not cheap?
Replace the underlined item with the following:
1. Achille Castiglioni's Arco Lamp
2. Poul Henningsen's Artichoke Lamp
3. Hans J. Wegner's Shell Chair
4. Hans J. Wegner's Wishbone Chair

Dining area (cause it's not a room) is Scandinavian with a Viking-led invasion of lamp and chairs.
Stairwell is Industrial - cement screed, white walls, glass and steps with stainless steel strips as antislip treads. Need a Mirror Ball Lamp to complete this.
Living room is minimalistic - Arco Lamp accompanying Shell Chair.
Kitchen is .... what is the theme of the kitchen??

Anyway, still not pictures yet. Taken many but yet to decide if there should be a dedicated blog for it.
