Flaming Lips Residence in Oklahoma

This project in Oklahoma City, USA is desiged to house a rock singer and a photograph.Both artists,  Michelle Martin-Coyne and his husband Wayne wanted something to fulfill their  aspectations from a modern, practical home, in which a rock band can  practice and an photographer can work without bumping into each other.

It was done in steps, part after part this compound becomed a residence.Quality materials  like the marble an the floor and wood  for furnishing including tables, chairs, cabinets a big comfortable couch, decorative pillows combined with a wood like color for the walls transforms the living room into a perfect place for a  family to hang out and relax.

The master bedroom has an  original design.Turquoise curtains filter the light coming in from big  windows and a custom bed is facing a very unique fireplace situated in the middle of the room suspended from the wall.


Also unique is the carpet beneath the fireplace, a circular turquoise carpet having drawn on it a skull.I think that room was decorated to meed especially the husband’s taste .What is really interesting is the bathroom.From the outside it looks like a dinosaur egg, but inside is like a “stone age”  room with irregular shapes and “carved” holes that includes the shower and a Japanese- inspired soaking tub.

The Coynes participated in the actual renovation and design of this house and that can be seen in many aspects on the entire home.After all it is designed  and build by artists, and what else  would result from  an artist ‘s hand than art.{found on homedsgn}
