nCFhu

If you are going to read one post on Sketch42 this week (this month!) make it this one! As I've stated many times before, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the concept of "Time Capsule Interiors." I got the idea, because my grandmother's two houses are completely preserved chinoiserie chic 70's acid trip awesomeness and I LOVE them, and always have. In fact, I think I pitched the idea of a "Time Capsule Interiors" … [Read more...]

This town: Tirunamavalai in South India!!!!!!! It looks like an Etore Sottsass Memphis Milano dreamscape, doesn't it? (What is Memphis Milano? Read my intro post first. MM always makes me think of Saved By the Bell intro, and also reminds me of my Sesame Place post.) An article in French AD describes the whole town. The homes were built in the 1940s, with great care by the families that lived … [Read more...]

My good friend Nicole Gibbons of So Haute just redid her apartment, and the tour as well as before and afters are now up on HouseBeautiful.com. She is standing in front of a painting that she commissioned from me, based on the one that is hanging in my apartment right now. So cool ;) I'm always a fan of a single giant painting in a space - although, I've been working on ridiculously epic gallery … [Read more...]

Design | Magic in Madrid.

pepe leal

I found this place in a rabbit hole of internet browsing... Its a complete renovation of a postwar Madrid apartment by designer Pepe Leal. Spain has got some seriously cool design going on. I really like this space, like, a lot. Its eclectic, doesn't feel overly done, feels cool and like a fun place to be in. I love the use of scattered color throughout. I've been really into primary colors … [Read more...]
