In my next life I'm living Blue-Lagoon-style, on a remote tropical island. But for the design of my hut, I'm mixing up the cultural influences and drawing inspiration from the lace-like floral rice-paste wall paintings traditionally done by the women of Orissa (today this east coast Indian state is known as Odisha).
And the hut will need a living room swing patterned after this one at Amet Haveli in Udaipur.
Speaking of waterfront living, don't forget Gauguin: Metamorphoses on view at MoMA through June 8.
