One thing that gives me a great deal of pleasure is visiting aome of my old friends - books and magazines. Thumbing through House & Garden, November 2007 I came across the residence of Estee LAuder's John Demsey and his wife Anouschka.
Sure the residence located in the Museum of Modern Art Tower has a great view, is high above the city and surrounds it's occupants with incredible vintage and new furnishings. But what I really love about it is ... the art!
One of my favorites is 'Smoke Rings' by Donald Sultan.
Come on! Who doesn't love a monkey wearing a mask? This photo was taken by Albert Watson. I would live a copy of this Mr.Watson!
If you are lucky enough to have lots of walls to accomodate it, and you love it... what can change a room faster than a revolving art collection? Not much, the bigger the better! Mix colorful with black and white, serious with whimsy. Come on, a monkey wearing a mask? Indeed yes! So find yourself some kindergarten kids and finger paint with them and frame it in something special - and get it up on the wall! - STAT!
Guaranteed, you'll have alot of fun doing it!
