Inspiration Monday: Leif Garrett as Art

So whenever I flipped around the channels this season and landed on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, I’d get especially sad when I’d see Leif Garrett, first of all because of his Behind the Music episode from a million years ago, and more recently, because of what a sunny Seventies California icon he was. The reason I remembered this was because I had stayed at The Parker Palm Springs back in September, and this photograph was hanging in my room:

All sadness for Leif aside, this is an awesome photo (there was one of Jackie O next to it). I swear, if you’re hard up for art around the house, some of the most beautiful photography around is sitting right there in your fashion mag. In fact, some of the funniest art also comes from magazines via stupid tabloid covers. Get creative with cheap frames from the big box store and fill your blank walls up with the images that inspire you. It’s a much better way to spend your time than watching Celebrity Rehab! What in the world has happened to VH-1? All of their shows go downhill from there, most of them too trashy even for me!

P.S. The interior design at The Parker was completed by Jonathan Adler, of course.

    There is on old Teen Beat or Tiger Beat magazine photo from the 70s of Leif Garrett in the Nati’s Mexican restuarant in Ocean Beach, San Diego, California as well. probably hanging there because he is wearing the restuarant’s tee shirt in it.

    You are spot on in saying that magazine photos can make great wall art. It makes me wish I had held on to my 90s era Spin and Sassy magazines to do just that with the photos from then.
