plant + levelor + sun = Hockney

Director Mike Nichols' New York City apartment, 1980. Besides the big Josef Albers painting, what I've always liked about this room is the simple plant in front of the sun splashed Levelor blinds, and and how it looks like a room David Hockney might've wanted to paint. It also helps that there's an actual David Hockney drawing on the bookshelf, and the upholstery looks like a Celia Birtwell design. And although it looks like a close-up of the window, below is actually Hockney's newest work- on iPhones and iPads, which, if you're in Paris before January 30th you should check out. It's nice to see him getting back to his plant/blinds/sunlight roots, but in such a crazy
 sci-fi way.
