We went to Clearman's the day before Thanksgiving to celebrate Luc's belated birthday. Surrounded by fake snow, peanuts everywhere, and lots of baroque-style boobie paintings, you have no choice but to eat enormous quantities of food and order several large steins of frosty ale. I got a postcard and the rest are camera phone shots. No one remembers their real camera anymore.
Look at Tweedle Dumb (Devon) and Tweedle Dee (Jenny) wearing the same shirt.
Luc having full feelings.
Thanks to Jennifer Brandt Taylor for writing about Clearman's in her awesome book, Vintage L.A. It has become my new "fun" guide.
I have a thing for mixing crazy patterns and collectibles. I also like minimalism. So my random array of favorite things is kept in my room. I think I could improve the display of it all. These 2 bedrooms = awesome. I love the dense mix of colorful patterns, the book shelves, the wallpaper.. and especially the red tapestry bedspread. The bedroom makeover process has officially begun. The "Eclectic Bazaar" Room is from Terence Conran's House Book from 1970, and the "guest room" is from Wary Meyers design duo's fun vintage-inspired home in Maine.
I found pictures of this church while I was searching for Verner Panton Interiors to start my Living Cat Museum moodboard. I would love to theoretically get married at St. Bartholomew's in Eastern Bohemia, but Russia did not make our list for a destination wedding, nor did I plan to have a ceremony in a church. Too bad "Join us in a celebration of our marriage in Eastern Bohemia" sounds awesome.
More information from Marcus Fairs at dezeen.com :
Czech designer Maxim Velcovsky has redesigned the interior of a church in Eastern Bohemia, using customised design classics, rugs and chandeliers. Working with designer Jakub Berdych under the Qubus Studio banner, the interior features Verner Panton chairs customised with a punched crucifix, Persian rugs and chandeliers of rough-cut crystal.
“The central nave has been stripped of dull repaints and left totally exposed so that visitors can watch the course of history on fragments and details on the wall.
“Illuminated by chandeliers adorned with pressed and roughly cut crystal, the bare space is dominated by an “army” of legendary chairs designed by Verner Panton with one crucial detail added – a Christian cross carved through the back of the chair.
