This is wonderful to have this freedom! We may not agree with the style, but then she follows no one, at in itself is impressive. She expresses her vision, that is courageous. She is unafraid and living to her fullest potential (I assume) and I applaud her for that!
Do you think they have dependable heat on the ferry? Seems they all had heavy sweaters or jackets on the whole time. They certainly creative, but all private homes that I've been in look so cluttered with all the MC stuff they collect. I get overwhelmed with it.

What I love is that this couple have really made a home for themselves that is personal and unique to them. Lots of self expression and fun and personality. It would be fun to go to a party there, or get a dinner invitation!
I like the hair. It isn't for me personally - I couldn't pull something like that off, but I love that SHE can.
I'm always amazed at the creativity when I get their catalogs. It's like living on a perpetual set of "Alice in Wonderland". Their ferry is so cool and I love the history, but like someone else mentioned, I get seasick when the boat is docked and just gently rocking, couldn't live on a boat if I wanted to.

We used to visit their factory/store when they lived in Aurora N.Y. It was such a treat to watch the items in the making and the very clever decorative ideas they had. They certainly have a unique vision and it is wonderful to know that you can have success just expressing your own dream.
Of course luck played a part in it too as I understand. It happened that someone from Neiman Marcus just happened on a sale that included some of their colorful pottery and that is what got them launched on their great success.
I watched the crazy houses shows today and love almost all of them. Yes, Sam I Am, I would live in a warehouse, a boat, a round house that rotates, an underground house. any of them. They inspired me to think about it and I wondered how much it really would cost to refurbish those places they live in. It seems to me they must have endless funds.
Watching the shows reminded me that my grandfather and his wife lived in an air stream trailor inside a warehouse. they had a garden outside. And growing up in Oregon, my dad built an 8 sided house, and all the funky furniture to go in it. I'm not sure if he built the furniture because he liked it or because we ran out of endless funds, though.
