Did you see Tamara Mellon’s NYC apartment in Harper’s Bazaar? When I saw this shot of Tamara (the founder of Jimmy Choo) lounging in her living room, at first all I could focus on was the white sofa, which looked oddly out of place to me in such a dark room.
Then I noticed the artwork on the wall behind her and realized that they were photographs. Of snakes.
I immediately thought of my Grandma Hazel, who I’ve been missing like crazy since she died in July. She hated snakes. And was terrified of them. All my life I heard, “Our family doesn’t garden.” One day I asked why, and she said, “Because of snakes, of course! You never know when one might pop out at you.”
So Grandma Hazel would not approve of this kind of art. However, after my initial WTH reaction, I realized that it was a clever reference to her famous company and their snakeskin shoes. In which case, might I suggest that a wall covered in photos of these might be a nice alternative?
Just a thought.
What do you think about the snake art? Creepy or cool?
