I believe all successful interiors must include a sense of whimsy or wit – without that, the space falls flat and feels hollow or empty. It looks like it was staged for a magazine. Not that hallow spaces aren’t beautiful to look at but trust me, I have created and lived in a few, they are ultimately unsatisfying. This doesn’t mean you have to include something kitschy (although that sometimes works) but rather include something that is fun and well designed. And most importantly, you. I have never bowled (okay, that’s a lie) but I do like the look of old bowling pins. Enter Lucky Strike by IMM Living and designed my Michael Revil Madjus. I keep mine by the front door on my entry table – it hides all my change. Available in select retailers and online.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
