beastie boy style.
you might not guess that a beastie boy has a traditional design bone in his body. but he does — of course, it’s got an edge. i recently came across mike d’s renovated old home in the new york times. it boasts an enviable art collection, stunning light fixtures and ceilings that seem to go on forever, but the Pièce de résistance for me was his brooklyn-themed toile wallpaper that mike d (aka mike diamond) of beastie boys fame designed himself for revolver new york. look closely, it’s not your average toile, but an ode to brooklyn — smashing, right? oh, and for his full fabulous home tour, visit the new york times.
