Added to My Must See Summer Movies


As you will notice in this trailer, Magic Mike has dreams of becoming a furniture designer. I suggest all of us in the design community support this young man by seeing this film. Twice.

Here's to Coachella

Gone are the days of hanging out backstage and having VIP access to everything....climate control and crowds are something I need more say over. Not going.

Crisp Prints and Various Oddities

Gilt has a lovely little enclave of vintage prints and quirky sayings translated into art on their site today. Below are some of my favorites....

Soicher Marin's Le Chapeau Mossant

I like this subway print on aluminum by Parvez Taj, but his bird painting looks so much like something I painted years ago, I could never buy it on principal alone.

This quote from Dorothy Parker could not fit more perfectly into my life at moment....sold!

Another Soicher Marin print of a Vintage Typewriter Keyboard.

Sunrise by Roy Lichtenstein.

Two Deck Chairs by David Hockney is a nice pop of color for even the most vanilla of interiors.

Andy Mouse by Keith Haring, 1986.

And even a reproduction lithograph from MOMA 1971 retrospective of works by Robert Rauschenberg. Please let me know if you need an invite to Gilt!

And here's where things change up....

Match Made In Heaven

I don't know what all the fuss is about, because I feel like this could possibly be the most perfect couple on the face of the planet. I always thought hubby and I were a dynamic duo, then I met Diane Kruger and Josh Jackson who are the most adorable, in-love couple I have ever seen in real life. But these two far surpass that whole "written in the stars" type of bullshit. Their love is different, in a Whitney and Bobby sort of way.

I'm going to go on the record and say that Yeezy and Kim Lardassian are off the charts, hands down, best couple of the year. H.A.M.

JaDie for Lamby Fluffiness

One day I hope to have a client that will let me pepper their pad with all sorts of fluffy furs and such, like this Mongolian Lamb Bench from Jonathan Adler.

The chrome legs really pop on this Curly Lamb Fur Bench from Pieces.

And of course it's not just about the lambs...Tibetan Goats get a shout out in this Ottoman, also by Pieces.

Gucci Gucci

For fuckssake James Franco, could you get any more foxy? Jeez...it's probably time I start ignoring those bi-rumors and use my 2-degrees of separation. Good God.

Kiddie Rooms Reppin Hard

If I were a kid, I would make my mom and dad buy me this Alison Delonge Ava Chair and hang a bunch of guitars on my walls then put on my ripped up jeans and wife beater and cover my face when people tried to take my picture. This kid is fucking cool.

Or I would ask them to put some Aimee Wilder Sumo Wallpaper up and buy me some horns for my mid-century style coffee table...

And after that, I'd get a bunch of cool coffee table books and stack them up all nice and neat next to my Whippet sitting on my fluffy throw rug in front of my Kokeshi Walls, also by Wilder.

And if I was a boy, I'd totally opt for the Analog Nights in my studio...

Etch-a-Sketch! Nice styling on this shoot for Gilt. Me likey.

All In For The 99%

I stepped out to a great party and art show this weekend hosted by Edward Norton on behalf of the 99%. It was held right down the street from me in an old car dealership and the place looked amazing.

The ramp served as the walkway for the guests and there were are installations to catch your eye on the way up.

There was a giant Revolution piece made of stuffed animals with blacked out eyes...

One of my faves, Patrick Martinez had some of his neon for sale. I have been spec'ing some neon for an office project I have been working on, so I was definitely interested in this piece!

And anything political will have an appearance by Shepard Fairey, of course.

Screw Wars by Michael Muller.

More neon, definitely a hit in the stark space.

I am not much of a photography fan, but this is a powerful image.

And then there were some more hard hitting pieces like this......

I also really liked these stencil type pieces for Antarctica

It got pretty crowded, especially when Tenacious D and Moby started playing, but the space was huge so it was super fun.

The night was sponsored by Ed Norton and Russell Simmons. Eddy, you're truly dreamy.

And Van Jones started his speech by pointing out the people who were not there that not, like Trayvon Martin and soldiers serving overseas.

I was super excited to find out that Fitz and the Tantrums were the surprise musical performance.

They are amazing live!!!

My girlfriend Soraya and I came out to support her younger sister Sowaila who was part of the PR firm organizing the event. She is so talented, and did such a kick ass job that night.

Several Asahi's later, we headed home in the rain. L.A., I love you!
