Dez's Digs.

Thursday, May 15, 2014

Dez'Mon Omega Fair is a watercolorist, a collector of hats, a self-professed aggressive biker, and a cherished friend - to me, and to everyone who knows him. He's also the subject of my my fifth feature for Berlin-based interiors site Freunde von Freunden. Dez's Bushwick apartment is full of treasures, including plants and paints and pins and a prominently displayed pair of Batman-print underwear. Also, a turtle lives in a tree in his kitchen. Yes, you read that correctly.


Of being called a hipster, Dez says, "If that's a term that people use to describe a person who wants to look as individual as they feel, then I guess it's an appropriate word for me. I may be hipster-ish, but I'm also a lot of other things that are less obvious…I've been this way as long as I can remember. If this is what hip is, then I've been hip all my life."

I love your interviews for FvF! Dez sounds fascinating. I especially loved his answer to your question, "What do you think about when you sit and stare?"
