"Bigger . . . "


" . . . and better things."

Good evening,

It's been another one of those surfin'-the-internet-sipping-English-tea kinda evenings here at the house . . . and YAY,  I just ran across some images (originally from Domino Magazine) of my old friend Michael Bastian's witty apartment in Manhattan.  Michael and I worked together billions of years ago when I was still at Polo in San Francisco and Michael was in New York with RL Home Collection.


I remember loving Michael's quirky style 10 years ago!  and I've always loved his NY apartment.  There is just such a great mix of flea market finds and 'more serious' furniture and artwork carefully mixed together.  I was so crushed when the Domino website closed, because there used to be the most adorable video of Michael leading a tour through his charming place.  

Michael's moved on since those old days and now is a big player in the fashion world with his own men's clothing line.  I always knew he was destined for great things.

I hope everyone has great plans for the weekend.  I have one last concert on Saturday with my chamber choir . . . and then I can hang up my vocal chords for a few months . . . whew . . . lol.

love your blog, i view it everyday and have never made myself known through a response. is it rude to read and dash? i feel like a literary freeloader at times. keep up the good works and know that you have a million silent majority freeloaders out here. kathi

I can definitely see a RL influence in his work. I'm going to go check out his site now. Isn't it fun to rediscover an old friend! I hope your weekend is relaxing and full of fun!

How funny that it's such a small world and you know him! I LOVED This apt and it inspired my salon-style art wall! It holds a special place in my clipping files :-)
