The Find: Go! Go! Go!

One of my favorite locations we photographed in The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details, is Go-Go's Jane Wiedlin's downtown LA loft, decorated by my fabulous pals at Jonamor Décor. I love this location because it exudes Jane's quirky personality, lit by imagery from girlie pin-ups, space-aged objects and a lust for originality and humor.

I also like the way she incorporated what could have been eyesores, like the columns that run through her space, and turned them into pleasing focal points. The column on the right was painted an intergalactic silver, and then ringed with metal shelves to show off her collection of pin-up cocktail glasses and retro barware. And oh, there's me standing in front of the fireplace made of river stone, crafted by the creative folks at Skellramics.

Oh, she's got the beat!



For more space-aged looks into Jane's space, pick up The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating with Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details at Borders,Barnes & Noble, Amazon or Powell's.
