|Gavin Brown's magnificently opulent living room|
As I wandered through Gavin Brown's fabulous St Kilda apartment, all I could think was, "my god, how can I adequately describe this place?"
Thankfully, gorgeous Gavin gave me the best description ever - "modern Baroque, a cabinet of curiousites, or even a dandy cave". Yep that pretty much covers it!
Apart from the mind-blowing artworks (mostly Gavin's own work) it was his beautiful Chinese Opium bed and use of bold paint in shades of black, mustard and scarlet that made me fall in love with this home.
You can see Gavin's artwork here, and read his fabulous blog, nic-nac castle, here. If you go back through the archives you can read all about Gavin and his partner, Peter Curnow's, last trip to new York. I followed their trip, and made a list of their must-sees, ahead of our trip to NYC in a few months time.
