KAUFMANN DESERT HOUSE //






So I finally watched that JULIUS SHULMAN documentary Visual Acoustics last night and was so gutted that I did not try to go spy on the KAUFMANN DESERT HOUSE (Neutra 1946) when I was in PS last weekend. Darn it. Dream House. So be it, I will get one of these in my lifetime. The renovation that the current owner had to do is astounding, from removing add ons that were built over the years and restoring it to its authentic state, all with the help of Julius's amazing archive of photographs. Mind blowing and leaves me pondering the real question; how did the previous owners let it go to sh*t... animals.

IT GLOWS IN THE DARK //


The more I try to hurt you, the more it backfires. Such a great song.

Song and photo of the day // This is my 1st Saturday in NY since I don't know when. Feels a bit strange, I totally have travel fever. But there are two outdoor parties in Brooklyn all weekend so I really shouldn't complain. At all.

Happy Saturday Kittens.

Im pretty obsessed with this months COVER of NYLON MAGAZINE (and of coarse I cant find on-line and I am far too lazy to scan it for you). DREW looks amazing and I want to steal her head of hair, so good.

SHIPWRECKED //

Well I am back from 4 amazing days in Palm Springs and LA. I think I may have acquired an addiction to sun, salt and pools... Being back in NYC has me feeling a bit 'shipwrecked' myself.... Here is a beautiful rainbow variation on the famed "shipwreck" dress from McQUEENS Spring 2003, photo via Nylon magazine
