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!For Your Style I'd Walk a Mile : Tags: brian patrick flynn, decor demon, five questions
