sneak peek: the mountain label

i love when the boundaries of art and life seem to blur, which is totally the case with the home of artist christopher bettig of the mountain label. one look at the LA home of this frenchman (who grew up in nyc and ct and studied at mica), and i was instantly reminded of his work – with its fresh, whimsical feel. i also love how it’s a mini gallery to show off his favorite artists. click here for more, full-sized images and here for all our wonderful sneak peeks. [merci, christopher!]anne

view of the living room via the office… a Nelson bench knock off is our coffee table which also doubles as our dinning table (sad, I know), our old FLOR carpet, a large Jonathan Adler lion a gift from my friend Angelo , IKEA desk, another vintage Eames shell chair and a quilt on the couch from our favorite store in Melbourne called Douglas & Hope . We have a lot of natural light from the giant corner windows and we didn’t want to lose that so we added some pretty sheer curtains… for a little more privacy I cut strips of contact paper and stuck them to the bottom half of those windows.

some of my favorites… two Alexander Girard dolls, one little Derek Hodgson figure , and the tallest one I made. . . The giant awesome slab of wood was a gift from Cindy from one of our favorite home stores in LA called OK , the wood figure was designed by me, the bird is a gift from my friend Rachel Robertson, the little stuffed creature I can’t remember but I know I got it in Vancouver as a gift for Cindy, the pine cone is from when we went to Big Bear… they were largest ones I’ve ever seen.

way too much going on here, but our place is really small and I don’t have room for all my books or art. This is my little Eames corner , vintage shell chair & base, WWII Eames leg brace & Eames small bookcase (which I think is actually a reproduction). Some Kaws toys , a Margaret Kilgallen and a Jim Houser are all on top of the bookcase. Over the door is a door hanging we got in India last October, and to the right of the door is an Irana Douer print that she did for our friends at Poketo.

the top of the overloaded bedroom bookcase… 2 Huntergatherer prints & a 3d wood mini head , 2 Phil Frost pieces (both were some drawings he made for me when I met him a while back), 1 piece from Barry Mcgee (which he painted for me when I helped him install some work at his show at the LA gallery Roberts & Tilton in 2004), a Brendan Monroe piece I bought at Giant Robot 2, a laser etched wood figure of mine, and a bunch of other misc little things….

Another overloaded bookcase this one from Ikea & then Cindy’s guitar. the bookcase has a bunch of random stuff on it like James Jarvis toys, shoes I did for Converse, some of our favorite magazines, non-art books, vintage clock, a box of postcards/letters etc. The door knob hanger is from a hotel in Singapore that we stayed at… It has the most amazing 70’s illustrations ever. I had to have it!

my favorite piece of art I own, such a bummer that most of the art I own is stored away. Cody Hudson tryptic from 2004.
