My perfect little house

graffiti is an art form you know.....

Who wants to buy this for me? Anyone?

I saw this today in a teeny tiny art gallery in the Marais when I got lost on my walk. The artist is Gael Darrinche. He is only 38 years old. He studied at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts in Paris. The painting does not have a frame per the artists instructions. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. The description reads, " This is a work of the very famous self-portrait of Dürer in ricin, a contemporary of Béatus Rhénanus, a humaniste of the first part of the 16th century. " The artist takes the original portraits and reinterpretes them in a contemporary medium.
Price 7000 euros.

The door is the best. You could take a little wall space on your wall, hang just a regular flat mirror, no frame, nothing. Then take a piece of ply wood, hinge it to the wall and put this door sticker on it and voila! awesome french door/mirror!!!
I will put the fireplace anywhere...maybe my bathroom.
I needed a headboard and now I can just stick one up!!!! Instant cute.

Love this apartment. Freestanding. Own garage. 4 or 5 stories tall. Probably a courtyard.Lots of light. These are all things to look for in a apartment, right? I might change the blue paint to black. I like a little drama.

This is my first posting for this blog.
I think I have figured out what ( i think) I am good at and that is sourcing cool stuff. Mostly relating to design.
This could be:
a house
an author
an interior designer
an artist
a fabric
a perfume
a candle
a store
an antique piece of furniture
not an antique piece of furniture
a book (usually about design)
an exhibit
a garden
a frame
a place
a friend with style
the list goes on and on and read on

I hate it when I read about something and I really like it and I cannot buy it right there so I will attempt to try to make it possible for you to purchase certain items if possible.
