yes, deadpan might not be the best phrase, gallows humor, better.

@ vix vax, of course you have taste, you just might be missing the absurdist, dead pan humor here...hey, art history buffs, can some one share a bit on still life motifs...

daylight in black rooms, something unexpected happens, a brightness, as i think we see in these photos? (or in photos of day lit people in them).

Carolyn, this post reminded me of the room of flags i'd like to do some day.
(oh Lord, now i'm whinging too; like any of us have the time....)

Are you sure you can say she has no taste rather than it is not your taste?

Samurai exhibit, Asian Art Museum, Civic Center, last three days--some exquisite colorations (in particular a spectacular Noh theater robe, of checkered triangles and phoenixes, multi-hued, worth half the price of admission). If you like indigo and muted eggplant or mauve, some of the warrior outfits are striking. And of course each floor is packed with color inspiration....

my apologies for this obnoxious outburst (juvenille, from overwrought frustration...sheesh; i might have just said, "can't more of you see the beauty?" in all of her work?)

thank you easynyc.
another AT Wearstler diss fest--
why has no one said that even within its vulgar elements, there is a refinement and depth of beauty in her work (i might as well say this as some of my recent posts reveal a jerk) that SOME of you arbiters of good taste might never grasp. Others, well, taste, to each her/his own, okay.

Wearstler piques the imagination...
the article rounds out the picture of her and if you are a fan, galvanizes a profound appreciation.

and her rich new styles, still brimming with a playful loveliness.

By the way, waitressed her way thru college, centerfolded in vintage blue and green lingerie, it said...she is kind of numinous, i think, or a "...halfling..." or just too fabulous, enchanting.

Thank you Lauren Collins for a fine article.

what about two different plaids in the same room?
or funkier plaids?
i love a red and yellow plaid, or a teal and purple plaid.
(yes, i am tacky;
i want a mobile home done sparsley, but in several different plaids, but a pucci themed mobile home would win out).

maybe i feel favorable toward plaid after reading about a teacher who said that to him (they'd asked random people), the height of style he'd witnessed in his life was his male students in Africa, they'd sport plaid suits, mixed different plaids, jackets and pants, and sometimes they'd trade, swap out different great and unexpected!
a couple years ago there was a photo in the New Yorker of an immigrant mother in America (from Somali, i think), striding along in a billowing head to toe red and yellow caftan, stunning and regal.

funky largely seems out of favor though.
i like how plaid can be both a bit wacky but is also square, manly, kind of comforting, but stimulating.

your pic choices are sooo pretty.
whenever i'm having a bad day i like scheming about 4 or 5 room apartments or small houses of different monochromatic rooms, floor, walls, ceiling (some with just a few other accent colors).

i kind of like the hotel room thing though...vacation from self sort of thing, especially if the rest of the home is very styley, idiosyncratic or maximalist.
