What Do You Love? What Makes YOU Smile?

Rate: 1 Flag

What is it that you love?  What makes you smile from ear to ear?

 

Lisa Perry saw the Carl Fischer photograph of Andy Warhol drowning in a sea of soup, and must have immediately thought to herself, “this art would be a phenomenal dress”.  She smiled and bought the rights and now she sells them in her shops.  www.lisaperrystyle.com

Is it Eero Saarinen’s work that you love?  Is it his architecture or furniture design?  Or both?  Perhaps he’s not your cup of tea.  A wonderful tour of his work has been circling the globe since last year.  Did you catch it?

For me, it’s both, but especially his furniture designs and that endearing TWA terminal. www.eerosaarinen.net

I love photography, and, as we all know, the debate about it being art is long long over.  I'm especially mad about black and white photography – lots of kinds, but one of my favorite photographers to make me smile is Bruce Weber.

With your taste for Saarinen, I imagine your home to be quite sleek and modernistic. Just between us gentlemen, I too enjoy the modern style, especially softened with pale-treatment woods and aqua-colored frosted and recycled glass. An understated Asian POV also impacts my aesthetic here on the Pacific Rim.
