Elle Interiör, 1992
”I WAS A FREE AGENT… and was able to go the whole way!”
this interior does not exist anymore!
1990 – 2002
1991, opening day of Evas Paley
When I became the owner of Paleys on Avenyn I feldt there was a need for something different, but I wasn´t quite sure of what. Zeppa, one of Sweden´s most marketeble artist today, is a very dear friend of mine. She promised to help me, and so she did, with a vengeance!
And then she went to work. The awnings were turned into Zeppas paintings, she designed new café chairs, wich I had made in france, we brainstormed the idea for my glassed-veranda, of wich the architects after a lot of work have managed to make a proper construction. And she painting my newly-built bar, a fantastic creation (it will arrive on friday)
Yes, it´s enormous. Beautiful, extreme, delicios, definitely unique… with room enough for everybody who would like to savour a Tuborg, or maybe a glass of red, because it has turned out that many of my day guests would like to find a heaven for the evening here as well.
Hence the new profile of Paleys, but the Lucia cake and the chocolate creams are still served, as always. News is that I will treat you for free to something tasty to eat on Christmas Eve, between 10am and 2pm.
My name is Eva, and I wich you wellcome. Everything is like it use to be, but with a difference!

8 picture letters, the hub of the entire interior work, mounted over the bar.

Zeppas work are heavily dependent upon The ”Picture Letter”/”Bildstävan”
as a construction formula… that goes also for the interrior design 1992 at Evas Paley,
everything expand out of ”The Pictureletter”, influenced by it´s expression.

The ideá to engage Zeppa
… to the design of Eva´s Paley started when the
Architect Christer Lundberg observed the painted marquess by Zeppa.
bartable´s and barchair´s…
… who made Zeppas visions possible!
”Christer Lundberg was the man who made it possible … who pushed for me to do
the interior and that made my ideas feasible.
I am eternally grateful for his generosity towards me.”
as a matter of curiosity…
A young Anders Dahlbom, and his brother Jonas Dahlbom, nowadays celebrated Swedish chefs , took part in the creative process by adding exelent quallity to the kitchen!
Alf, the bakery car!
Summer 1996: Zeppas last work was painting the bakery car.
