Hanging with Kenyan
In our visit to Creative Director Kenyan Lewis’ home in upstate New York, we discovered a hearty collection of American flags in his possession. The antique sensei offered The Inside Source his suggestions on three creative usages for your home.
(1) If it’s on the larger side, drape the flag over your flat screen TV.
(2) There’s nothing better then layering them over a couch or a chair. 
(3) Stacking them on a lovely antique trunk will give you that Paula Rubenstein feel.
We’re sold. Lucky for us we spotted tons of American flags on eBay — some old and some new, depending on the vibe you’re going for.

"I’ve been collecting and building letters for businesses and private clients for years having had Ralph Lauren, Earnest Sewn, The Gap and The House of Waris as my clients" says creative director Kenyan Lewis during our sojourn into his 11 room Manor in upstate New York. He tells The Inside Source, “the best type [of letters] we would all agree would be the ones with heavy patina. The rusty paint peeling off broken neon ones.”

Visit eBay’s current listings for large antique letters. You’ll have to keep digging to find the right one, so keep a close eye for new inventory.

Back in the days, these nifty little View Masters were like a personal grand slideshow in your pocket. eBay has one in mint-condition to share with you. What can you view in the device? Fear not, eBay has tons of vintage master reels, such as the “Homes of Movie Stars, Hollywood California” series. It costs only $2.95 to enjoy 200 homes.
