My sweet friend, and amazing designer, Benjamin Dhong just sent the most exquisite images of his room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase - and I just HAD to share them. His space was in this marvelously tiny room up on the third floor, with beautiful views of the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge . . . and a wonderfully intricate roof line of slopping eaves and dormer windows. He was "inspired a chic Parisian garret," and the idea of "flight."
Let me introduce you to . . .
- a meditation on winged flight -
I'll have to admit, I actually missed one of the best aspects of the room the first time I visited - and frankly, I was on the press tour, and the room was incredibly busy. But on my next visit, during a quiet weekday, I saw it - and it's truly breathtaking. First click on the image above. Then slightly *blur* your eyes.
and in what might be the most perfect piece of music to accompany this 'room in flight' . . .
"Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine" by Eric Whitacre.
(seriously, @5:50 second - it's actually flight set to music . . . chilling)
