Alexa Meade photographerd by Michael Rubin



Chris Hughes hasn’t always adored rainbows, but now he can’t get enough of them. While during off hours he enjoys basking in the prism reflections of his whimsical home, during the day Hughes is a math whiz and computer nerd with a knack for hacking. (He was one of the first to hack the iPhone.) It only made sense for this tech geek to design a screen-free space that takes playtime offline.



Celebrated artist Alexa Meade paints on people in a way that makes them appear to be 2D portraits of themselves. Hailing from Washington, D.C., she’s lived in L.A. since early 2013. However, it wasn’t until Chris Hughes came along later that year that this painter’s life got a whole lot more colorful.
