I dig her caftan

William Gentle for The New York Times.

I want to photoshop mine and my husband's heads into this photo.  These two live in a carriage house in Brooklyn's Boerum Hill and hold "groovier-than-thou" dinner parties.  She is the daughter of some famous restauranteurs I've never heard of and is currently enrolled in culinary school.  His occupation is unknown but obviously allows for a leisure lifestyle where acid-washed jeans will not earn you an ass-whoopin' from your friends.

Mostly I have sofa and floor envy.

You crack me up Raina.

Perhaps I really am way too judgmental but those jeans really struck a dischord with me too - what's that about?

Am off to click on the link, to find out more,

Happy days,

x Felicity

I saw a sofa similar to this at the auction I just went to. They were calling it Milo Baughman style and the frame was chrome instead of wood like here. I think it sold for less than $100. It made me think of you, actually.

If only I had a spare warehouse.

Jeans no
Caftan definitely not
Floor optional
Sofa is a must

Sofa envy, floor envy, and now kaftan envy.

Man, that's a list!

Lausi said...

In my case you can add "dog envy" to the list :)

GORGEOUS sofa!

I remember in the 70's, my parents went away for the week and hired this very cool twenty something to watch us and she wore the most amazing outfits including a couple of caftan's!

I just re-did my floors....thanks for making me jealous after all the $$$ I just spent! :)

That mantel is quite fab as well!

That floor is insane. The sofa is okay too. Off to see more!

Adorable in every way. Nothing like a cute artsy couple of nebulous means.

Caf-what?

Moving on, I want those floors something fierce. And the sofa too. I think I want their life too. I'd be ok playing the part of the dog if necessary.

Raina, start selling similar caftans and I guarantee I will be first in line!
