For Your Style, I’d Walk a Mile with Brian Patrick Flynn

This week I’m giving you guys a sneak peek at a new series for the blog. Starting next year, I’ll be doing a series called “For Your Style, I’d Walk a Mile” where I ask brilliant creatives to answer the same set of questions. To kick things off, I thought who better than my friend Brian Patrick Flynn?


1. Who would you want to play you in a movie?
If there were ever to be a black comedy about my life, I think it would be amazing to have a jack-of-all-trades-actor playing the jack-of-all-trades-me. That being said, I would have to say that handsome, acting/singing/dancing tour de force Joseph Gordon-Levitt. From Saturday Night Live to 500 Days of Summer to Inception? Oy vey! What a talented mensch.

2. I wish I could…
Draw. Although much of my career is based on sketches, my “sketching” is subpar and somewhat kindergartener. When I see people whip out amazing pencil sketches,I’m in awe. The only things I draw well are cursive letters, particularly lower-case j’s, I am also very good at drawing conclusions.

3. My first style memory is…
When I was little, my dad – a realtor and real estate appraiser – would take me along on the weekends to appraise or show properties in Fort Lauderdale and Miami. When was 5-years-old I stepped inside a waterfront, modernist 1970s property which had been professionally decorated, it was packed with texture, geometrics. I remember thinking “This is what makes me happy.”

4. I could not live with out my…
The proper answer: Friends and family. The disappointing truth: My iPhone. Since my days are long and I travel extensively. It’s hard to comprehend exactly how much of my day-to-day routine depends on my iPhone. I find that my entire social and professional world relies on the proper functionality of my iPhone. 

5. I could live without…
Political Facebook status updates. OMFG, they drive me crazy. As far as Facebook goes, I just want to read someone’s sarcastic surmising of the latest episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo orThe Real Housewives of New York, 100% fluff, can’t hurt anyone, I also love going on Facebook to see creative people’s latest projects. Being serious on Facebook is such a buzzkill..

Pick a photo, décor object, or piece of clothing that defines your style:
This photo of my favorite LA project to date really sums up my style: colorful, graphic, layered and tailored yet carefree. It’s a tween girl’s bedroom It’s part modern, part traditional, Young but also adult appropriate. Overall it’s just really packed with personality and an “I-don’t-give-a-fuck-what-you-think” attitude. LIKE.

Thank you Brian and wishing you all a fabulous 2013!

    I love that the room that defines BPF’s style belongs to a tween girl, because he has a lot (of good things, like not talking about politics on Facebook) in common with a tween girl, which is part of what makes him so much fun.

    Brian has the enviable gift of being able to say or do anything he desires and never gets into trouble for it. He is one of the few people who can make me laugh, which is no easy task, and is tops in my book for so many reasons. Thank you, Annette, for featuring this beautiful soul so wonderfully.
