When Doug Gellenbeck first laid eyes on Michael Whitton, he knew they were meant to be together. “I thought he looked like someone I would like to come home to every night,” he explains simply. The two had met while Doug, an interior designer, was working on a project for an Yves Saint Laurent prototype store in Las Vegas. Doug’s boss was familiar with Jonathan Adler, a prominent designer whom Michael was working with at the time. The two began to e-mail and call each other, as well as exchange short, flirty notes.
