Mario Buatta Wire

The Times has a fantastic profile of Mario Buatta, the so-called "Prince of Chintz" decorator whose interiors—mostly for "people who have 6 houses with 29 rooms"—will be published next month in a 400-page Rizzoli book. "I wanted to call it 'It's About Time' or 'The Buattapedia,'" said Buatta, a known jokester. "It's my one and lonely, the child I will never have. And it's given me a hernia." Unrelatedly: "If I had a sex problem, I could be mayor." [NYT]
