Gee.....I bet A.T. didn't realize, there would be all these reverential and looney M.J. comments!
I think Jeff Koon's vision/intent was rather prolific. The wonderful, gross, gaudy sculpture is like a big mirror right now.

THANKS Andy and Timmy! I appreciate the kind words.

I've gotten several new lamps, which I've put on Flickr under the name 'Mad Modern'

The coffee table that hendrickb11 asked about was from Crate & Barrel, which I believe Room & Board now carries.

Very nice, with a very fine-tuned and thoughtful eye.

I 2nd the prior comment. I appreciate the non-Pottery Barn / catalog look, or the "I got this from Grandma's attic" look.
(which is fine, don't get me wrong), but this is a classic modern presentation. Nice!

Very sweet! The gray paint on the fence is really nice.
And what a nice tubby cute kitty!

Thanks again for all the nice comments, seriously.
I admit I have a looney obsession with lamps and 'classic' ocean liners.
Oddly enough, it's fun to see that 'things' from the 30's, can work together with something produced in '09.

In these dreadful economic times, I think it's super important to surround yourself with 'fun'.

Comments from me:

Thanks SO much for the kind comments!
Regarding the origin of the Normandie model: it's new, from a French company....I'm trying to scout out the name.

I should have stated that my biggest embarassment is my over-packed, messy closets.

Again, thanks! :)

I think this is great, and looks really cool.
Remember the 'Justify My Love' video, from '91 I think??

Her meandering through that Paris hotel, made for one arresting video.

There are some cute and colorful elements for sure.

The white mod looking chair near the fire place, looks like it is straining for attention. (is it really that wide, or is the photo stretched?)

I like the random shots of color!

I swear, it's too tough on weekdays. I'd rather plop down on the couch and watch 'I Love Lucy'. But weekends? I clean.

Dreamy, California perfection. The bathroom makes me faint, it's so nice.

Very nice.
I saw a super-sized version of a vertical garden, in London, and loved it.

sorry, but the framed screen (?), looks like something I'd see at a dumpster?

It's a bit 'young' for a near 50 year old rock icon, but's Michael Stipe!

An 'artsy, messy' millionaires apartment.
Though I would like to see Morrissey's place (ex-Smiths, who Michael had a crush on!)
