Sweetness and Light


A frankly pretty corner by French-born, New York-based interior designer Corinne Gilbert. Lovely painting is by Dan McCarthy. Find out how to decorate like Corinne over at Remodelista — and revisit my post about a Brooklyn loft designed by her here.

The new video for St. Vincent has some solid connections to the art world. Notes ARTnews Today: "The video, which you can watch here, features St. Vincent sitting in the midst of The Wall (1973), Forrest Myers’s glorious installation on Houston Street in Manhattan, spinning Tony Rosenthal’s beloved Alamo (1967) sculpture in Astor Place, and resting her head on a disco ball that’s sitting around—a loose nod, perhaps, to a famous Martin Kippenberger series."
