My Powder Room Makeover

I have a tiny powder room that has mirrored walls, a mirrored ceiling, and a floor that looks like glass.  It also has a glass sink, glass countertop,and an interesting tower of woven aluminum and beads.

Tim Hawkinson’s Eyeglobe and Issey Miyake’s Pleats Please Collaboration

Here is an interesting meeting of fashion and art from my past.  This features a piece we used to own, Tim Hawkinson's Eye Globe 1992 and a dress it inspired--Issey Miyake's dress from the Pleats Please Guest Artist No. Series. Eye Globe was probably the only piece  I ever purchased without showing it to my husband first.  Luckily for me, he loved it too!   I think Tim Hawkinson and I arrived at Ace Gallery at almost the same time.  I...
