I’m on a David Bowie kick, thanks to YBCA’s March movie program including The Man Who Fell to Earth, Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars, and The Hunger. The pioneering androgynous performer of the 70’s and 80’s was a role model for outlandish self reinvention, challenging my belief in what was possible. I loved him!
I was fascinated when I recently came across this London home designed for David Bowie and Iman by Jonathan Reed. How does a creative artist, whose shifting style so fascinated a young boy from the midwest, live? Well, if this home is any indication, he lives modestly (but expensively) in a beautifully crafted interior which is smart, understated in a way that transcend trends. Is it too boring for the man who created Ziggy Stardust? Here are a few of the images for you to decide.

PS Clearly this was intended as a pied-à-terre. Sadly Bowie and Iman never lived in this residence, as the cover was blown and the paparazzi found out the address.
