The textile designer, Lisa Fine, has one of those apartments in Paris that is dripping with spots of pink in the prettiest shades and most apropos places (i.e. everyhwere.) Photographed by the charming and talented Miguel Flores-Vianna for Lonny Magazine, I stare at it, trancelike, and fantasize about my pied a terre in Paris. You see, when I lose myself in these gorgeous images, I'm actually in them, except Miguel and Lisa work with Lonny and are busy styling and photographing my home. Meanwhile, I'm on the balcony drinking a cafe au lait and reading Proust, being an irritating cliche on purpose. An hour or so later I retire to my studio to paint pink ranunculi for the afternoon and eat bacon (I like bacon and it's my fantasy.) Perhaps there are Twinkies nearby, too, and I might even drink Yoo Hoo and smoke. Of course, I'd share with Miguel and Lisa; a little bacon and Yoo Hoo têtê a têtê amongst fellow artists.
Have you read Lonny? I can't believe I haven't mentioned it before but it's a must-read, full of interesting people and gorgeous interiors. A mammoth undertaking, considering the quality of the interviews, photography, and homes, and it's executed flawlessly, as you can see here.
Don't you just love how she painted that alcove pink? Charming, charming, charming. Lisa, when I'm in town I hope we can get bacon and Yoo Hoo because you're clearly my kind of girl. Kudos!
