The Salk Institute - SL meets RL

On  October 16, 2012, Neva Crystall did a fashion shoot in front of an amazing building - SALK by Fanatik Architecture.

Needless to say, I rushed over to Fanatik and dropped $4,000 L for this amazing piece of architecture.  It has been sitting in my inventory and just before Christmas, I decided to decorate one of the rooms/floors.

I just got my copy of the February, 2013 issue of Architectural Digest.  They did a small piece about The Salk as it is nearly 50 years old.

It was completed in 1965, designed by Louis I. Kahn and is a nonprofit research center in La Jolla, California.

The timing couldn't be more perfect to show you my design.  Because of the angles, it was very hard to decorate and photograph.  I did my best.

After the Holidays! - Part 1

After the excitement of Christmas and New Year's Eve, I usually feel emotionally hungover.  So off I go for a week-long ski trip.

You can rent a house or condo in the Colorado ski areas and spend your entire year's entertainment budget.  But - WOW - it is so worth it.

This is my interpretation of a perfect ski lodge.
