Last Thursday night began at the Silverlens Gallery, where Nikki Luna and Zean Cabangis opened their two-man show called Shade My Eyes and I Can See You.
At 9 PM, we went to our 2nd dinner with James Jean in this beautiful house. I rarely get floored by houses, and this one took my breath away because of all the space, high ceiling, and art.
The house was designed by the owner of the house. He is an architect trained in Barcelona, a businessman, and a serious collector of books and art.
But before I could see the rest of the house, I had to behave and sit down for dinner.
There was a bottle of shiraz designed by James Jean
James spoke art with Nikki Luna
and showed us pieces from his jewelry collection
He signed my books
And then we got a tour of the house. First, the massive two-story screening room/library
A spiral staircase in the back of the room leads to an upstairs
where you can watch the same screen
There’s the balcony
and a view of the pool
More paintings on the second floor: an entire wall of Shepard Fairey
You might recognize it by the style
An original James Jean cover art
right next to the cover itself
Here’s the view from the 2nd floor
What I liked most, besides the pool, was truly restroom. I wasn’t able to take a picture inside because my camera battery conked out at a most inconvenient time.
The owners shared they used mostly Domus furniture and Parador floors in their house.
Domus has a showroom on the Lower Ground Floor of Greenbelt 5. Must check this out again.
