Breath-taking...I love these pictures of little spaces in your home and how they are carefully orchestrated with specific themes. Looking forward to more.

Sorry Sven. GROG not wreck your thread any more (unless there is something else more than ripe for Photoshopping to bring about a good chuckle)

Is that a promise? I am glad you were inspired, but that's a lot of work - with dubious success.

Holy carp.

The tiki on the cover of the Book of Tiki. Was it carved before the book, or after?

The BOT Tiki is a figment of cover artist Moritz R's imagination and this little fella was carved for me years later as s gift.

I guess that's where Facebook has its advantages, being that A.) not any clown can come along and mess with your work, and B.) if they do, you can delete it.

Good luck on your projects, to be sure. I'm about to be interviewed for a piece that will be on Spiegel News. Perhaps you'll catch it while you're over there!

Great photos of your pad! What a Tiki museum it is. Thanks for posting them. But it must be a bitch dusting your place.

We'll miss seeing you at Hukilau this week...

What is the subject of the interview? Is it gonna be in the mag, on TV, or online only?
Tell them that it is a real shame that they had to take down their original 1969 Werner Panton cafeteria when they moved headquarters 2 years ago :

I like lamps, as evidenced by this exterior shot of my house where you can see the front porch:





What a great shot this is.
Love the lights!
Many tiki bars don't have many lights, But
your place just glows.
I guess I should start to hang some of mine.
How many lights do you have Sven?
Ever count em.
