I love color, and so does playwright/Renaissance man John Patrick Shanley, author/director of hits like Doubt and Moonstruck, whose adventurous home was recently featured in the New York Times Style section. For my money, nothing has the power to so simply lift your mood, communicate your style, or change a space like color.
I don't think of Seattle as a community that especially embraces bold color, but I'm trying to do my part to change that....at least, in my home and shop. Baby steps, Seattle.
Here are some of my favorite shots of Shanley's home:here to learn more about this interesting fellow and see additional interior shots.
As if I didn't like him already after seeing inside his apartment, this quote from the article cinched the deal:
"One object that isn’t on view is his Oscar for the movie Moonstruck. 'I wouldn’t want to have it out,' he said. 'It’s not good for me, when I’m trying to write, to see an Oscar, and for the kids it’s not good at all. You never want them to feel like, "I can’t beat my Dad." They should be able to feel that they can bury you at any time.'
