rebellious, illuminated and romantic, artist, sculptor and writer théophile bra (1797-1863) kept a private diary of his strange visions of the world. "an emotional disturbance in mystical matter" it was said, caused a prolific and feverish creative enthusiasm. i like it.

again, this room is busier with doo-dads than i personally care for, but i like the nailhead panelling (above) for a study. also, for someone with a book problem like myself, i like the bookshelves behind the bed. in a small space you could build that bookshelf between the studs on an interior wall, not encroaching on valuable space. however, i do get the feeling this is terrible feng shui. check out the portfolio at bilhuber and associates.

central london townhouse den. i love the colors here, and even though it is a little busier than i personally would have it, i like the fact it looks well lived in.
the paolo moschino for nicholas haslam website offers a beautiful interiors portfolio on top of some lovely furniture, fabric and lighting selections. worth a visit for sure.
trespolo standing lamp
rosewood paris side tables
chinoiserie dining chairs
i think this panelling is beautiful with the chandelier. if they were to ask my opinion, which somehow i doubt, i would only change the chairs.

camouflage deer with target pants. 2003 * textiles, rubber, gold, coral, shell, pearl * photo: eddo hartmann
in looking for felieke van der leest, i realized i had shown her work before. i just felt the deer in target pants was too good to pass up, so here she is again. my 8 year old vegan son would not approve. felieke also has a new book showcasing the last 10 years of her jewelery.
rocky the rock penguin alias the stork, 2006 * brooch, textile, plastic, gold, cubic zirkonia
typo-matic sweetheart (machine), 2002 * steel, copper, brass, found materials * photo: shingo furukawa
i think these machines by metalsmith shingo furukawa are interesting. typo-matic sweetheart is my favorite of these two. his work is hard for me to find. i would love to see more if any of you are in the know!
untitled (feather and egg) * steel, brass, feather & found objects * 2005
