Well today is the day I have the pleasure of hosting Michael Offutt, author of SLIPSTREAM ... Many of you know Michael from his edgy blog, but if you don't, please drop in on Michael and tell him I sent you. You will certainly enjoy his wit, writing style, and honesty.
Since I am an Interior Designer by trade, Michael thought incorporating design into today's post would be quite appropriate, and I whole heartily agree.
Take it away Michael ...
The houses and apartments of television bombarding our eyes portray the top 1% of our country as the normal America. When I write, I go along with this illusion by using appliances made by industry kings Sub-Zero and Wolf to give a level of authenticity to the Yuppie/bourgeoisie lifestyle of 2012. Sub-Zero and Wolf make arguably the best refrigeration and cooking units on the planet. I’ve included some pictures of kitchens you can design around these kinds of appliances so you can see what I’m talking about. One look screams “Modern Family” or the Cullens in “Twilight” or anything really with stuck up white teenagers trying to attend high school as werewolves or vampires with perfect bodies but somehow, not fitting in. My book doesn’t have this in it…but you get the picture.
