Oooohooohooo…Sensation. Bryan Ferry’s London Digs

If you haven’t had a chance to leaf through the former Editor-In-Chief of Domino, Deborah Needleman’s début at WSJ Magazine, do yourself a favour and click through, read, peruse, watch the videos. I think she and her staff get it just right. So does Meg, over at Pigtown-Design. I trust her judgement, don’t you?

Is it pandering in our celebrity obsessed age? Who cares? Let’s face it, the man has style. Bryan Ferry has to be one of the most erudite, elegant, unassuming rock stars ever self-made. (His new release “Olympia” is marvelous, by the way, a perfect stocking or … errrr …. laptop stuffer.) Trash a hotel room? He’s not the type. Just read the article on the “bespoke bohemian.”

  1. When I was a but a mere slip of a girl my sole goal in reaching the age of majority was to put together the kind of bar wherein I could produce nearly any cocktail a guest might desire. I did, too (you will not be surprised to learn how little Campari 21-year old American undergrads will request when dining at teeny off-campus apartments). Sometime around my 30th birthday I read an interview with Bryan Ferry in which he talked about his own “drinks table”. That was some time ago, certainly pre-dating his current flat so *this* drinks table is not the one referenced then. Still I’m playing catch up – I like his better than mine. Oh well, we can’t all be B.F. now, can we?

  2. Right on, Marsha. It’s funny, Campari had a major advertising campaign probably decades ago now to raise awareness in the US, so a lot of us bought bottles that tended to languish on our bars. At least it looked nice. Never developed a taste for it, though. Now, Pim’s Cup — there’s a drink I could really get behind.

    Still love Bryan Ferry’s ’80s stuff like “Kiss and Tell.”
