Dutch catalog livingPosted: July 24, 2012
When we first moved into our apartment, there was a mountain of mail waiting for us in the mailbox. Some of it was important, but most of it was unsolicited junk mail. Normally I would be all upset about wasted paper, but it was hard not to appreciate this gem of a home design catalog I received.
The pictures in it were so odd. Not because of the home decor, but because of the situations they put the models in. I couldn’t help but think of Catalog Living and the great captions they would add.
Here are some of my favorites:
In this scene, we have a man making a slightly amused face holding a camera with what can only be assumed is a camera instruction booklet next to him.
Next up, a problem many of us are familiar with: where do you put a litter of puppies? Seems like “on the table” is an obvious choice. Maybe those two puppies are the ones they have bred for super-puppy skills in jumping and climbing?
I know that stickers on the wall are a popular thing nowadays, but… I just can’t even… I mean… what in the world?!
I love how they even decided to put milk in the little glass jar to really drive the color scheme home.
Every photo in the catalog had a normal horizon. And then there was this one. I love how the model is looking straight at the camera as if she is thinking, ‘Whoa. He just took the camera off the tripod. This catalog shoot just went high-fashion.’
