If these walls could talk…

Jeffrey Moss is no stranger to styling. A longtime photo stylist for Pottery Barn and Target, he has cleverly elected a crisp white backdrop for his own Chicago loft. Unexpectedly, the walls erupt into chaos – an avalanche of photographs cover the walls, all vying for attention – part of a vintage collection he began years ago (no photos taken later than the early 60′s). A master curator, Jeffrey collects walking sticks, vintage tip trays from defunct restaurants and more — each object is artfully displayed as though an installation in a gallery. One could never tire of this ever-evolving wallpaper – the perfect inspiration for his spells of re-arranging, movie script writing or shoot-envisioning. Oh, and Jeffrey…. I’ll be right up for one of those Manhattans on your thick antique butcher block.
