Brilliant Finds





Vintage French hat hook from the 1950's - AMAZING.

My friend Ben's apartment is in the latest issue of Lonny. We used to work together at Jonathan Adler; he's the curator of all JA stores and he clearly knows what he's doing. Ben is just as lovely, charming and full of personality as his apartment reflects. And did I mention stylish and smells good? Whenever I mention Ben, Patrick always asks, "The guy that smells good, right?"

Ben was also my karaoke partner in singing "Island's in the Stream" by (the best music duo ever) Dolly and Kenny. It was the first and last time I will ever do karaoke. And lucky me, Patrick has it all on video...

Great story and great space! Really liking the 2nd image! I'd be afraid the bicycle would fall down in the middle of the night though :)

Thank you Erica for you post! And thank you everyone for the kind words about my apartment.
I am most shocked to learn that the karaoke incident is on tape, I never knew that!! I never need to see it, and for that matter neither does anyone else!!
