The Find: On the Go-Go!

Since just a few weeks ago I saw The Go-Go's once again in concert, I thought I'd share with you one of my favorite locations from The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details. Here's one of the images shot by Bob Greenspan of Go-Go Jane Wiedlin's downtown LA loft that exudes her quirky personality. Spiced up with imagery from girlie pin-ups and space-aged objects, the space shows off Jane's lust for originality and humor.

I also like the way Jane incorporated what could have been eyesores. For instance, she turned the columns that run through her apartment 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 the fireplace made of river stone, crafted by the creative folks at Skellramics, is accentuated by an old speaker cover that Jane just happened to have lying around.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter
