designer love: michael bargo

I was going through some old issues of my former home Domino (I did basically live there...) and rediscovered the story we did on designer Michael Bargo's tiny little apartment. I now remember why I flipped over it in the first place. I'm a huge fan of the bed in the middle of the room, and the homemade canvases over the bookcases as a cloaking device for the more unsightly tomes. hope you guys like it too!

LOVE the sharp look of the navy color pops throughout the room. And is that a fireplace and a mantle I see?! Oh to dream...

Be still my obsessive heart...I had that photo of the bookshelf with the canvases at the top of my inspiration board for ages. I ended up bringing home a giant 4 ft square canvas left over from a photoshoot- painting it dark matte grey and darwing a messy '8' on it in veryvery light grey paint. I told myself ( and others it was temporary art while I thought of something better but in all honesty I loved it). Sadly it was sold on gumtree when we moved a few months ago because we didn't have room for it in our studio flat 'sniff'. I know I could make it again, but would it be the same?
