Inspiration: Temo Callahan's Perfect Irreverence

Full Disclosure: We are in love with this apartment. Possibly creepy in love. Possibly Glen Close in Fatal Attraction in love.

We managed to snag a copy of the new domino at the release party for their new book last night, but didn't crack the spine until late today. At first sight, the spread on Temo Callahan's smallish one bedroom had us running to the scanner...

As the director of the legendary Clarence House throughout the 1980s and 90s, Temo went on to start his own wallpaper company, Studio Printworks, in 2004.

Reminiscent of the infamous Vreeland "Garden-in-Hell" apartment, the space teems with asian-inspired reds and florals, as well as the bold, modern prints of his own Studio Printworks. Some of our favorite Kazumi Yoshida designs grace throw pillows in the living room and the headboard in the bedroom. Amazingly, Temo has lived the same space for 29 years.

For more photos and a full interview, pick up the November issue of domino. Temo's DecoFile, full of classics like Baldwin and DeWolfe, as well as some incredible set design, can be found here.
