When we arrived to photograph John Derian's Lower-East-Side apartment for The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating with Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details, this renown decoupage artist had just returned from Provincetown and had rushed around early that warm summer morning to get his living space camera-ready. Here's a peak into Derian's kitchen as photographed by Jim Franco. Note the cut-out kitties found at a flea market hanging on a wall that is cracked and mottled, a dreamy imperfection that only adds to its charm.
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,
The Elegant Thrifter
