Many of you have suggested interior designs, furnishings, and clever trends in your comments to my posts. I thought it high time to offer props and publish the following graphic representations of your ideas. Keep posting! I get a chuckle out of your remarks and they spark up plenty of ideas. If they ever start a Do-It-Your-Self Help Group, save me a seat!
Christmas Story Lamp
In response to my post about ugly and/or unusual lamps, Whit and Adam reminisced about the famous lamp from A Christmas Story. I’ve seen copies these lamps on the sets of talk shows for years.
I wrote about modern bathtubs recently and Whit recounted the time his friend made a boat into a home bathtub which, oddly enough, leaked. The bath boat in the image, created by Dutch designer Wieki Somers, is from the design of a real boat–turned inside out and nested on its back. Look at all the images of this remarkable bathtub at Notcot.
In response to my post about trippin’ on 1960’s furniture, Randy brought up the recreational use of shag carpet on the walls of fashionable homes. Consequently, I found photos of a pink shag carpet wall that belonged to Hollywood bombshell Jayne Mansfield (seen here in the tub). You can view the lot of them (mature audiences) on NY make-up artist Darian Darling’s blog.
RE: the post on the 60’s, Woplogic says he’s ready to put on his bell-bottomed baby-blue leisure suit, platform shoes with the Buster Brown buckle a-la-Ben Franklin, psychedelic purple paisley print polyester wide-collared, no-top button shirt, and of course, pick out his hair into his best Jimi Hendrix-style afro. Well, I found your shirt, Wop. But let’s go for the whole thing!
