Do you ever experience deja mag? I picked up a Western Interiors a few weeks ago and I tore out this Peter Dunham feature, thinking I’d do a post on masks sometime in the near future as they seem to keep popping up everywhere:
Then I decided to give my April Domino one last glance before filing it away, and saw Mr. Smiley with Horns again here:
If I had that big face/mask/whatever thing in my house, I’d want it as a one-of-a-kind piece. Is this the same house and he just rearranged? Or does he buy big faces in bulk at Pier One Imports? Inquiring minds want to know!
Are we going to have to add this particular piece to our Design Drinking games? One more sighting and I say yes!
Bonus: Can you find any other matching items in these two photos? I spy a Chinese stool and coral in both. I do admire his mixed palette of textures, colors, prints, eras and styles – that is really hard to pull off, and P.D. does it with aplomb. He’s also a cool dresser and he digs maps, so he’s aces in my book. Anyway, I do prefer the less cluttered, cowhideontopofotherrug-less room on top. Do you like one more than the other? If so, why?
