the writer's garden

Being the female literary nut I am, I got such a kick out of this Martha Stewart Living article as published in their April 2013 issue. Call me clueless, but I had no idea that some of America's greatest female writers were also accomplished gardeners. I also didn't know that Macau trực tuyến BaccaratEdith Wharton thought her garden more successful than House of Mirth or that Edna St. Vincent Millay liked to weed in the nude (#hero). All of the five gardens featured here are open to the public... and I'm going to visit every last one. Perhaps I'll even be inspired to start a little plot of my own :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, learned something, became a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”

-Nora Ephron

office space: edith wharton 

It's a widely-known fact that Edith Wharton penned many of her novels from the comfort of her own bed (hence the bedroom photo in Vogue's August 2012 Edith Wharton-inspired editorial). In my imagination, the novelist definitely owned something along the lines of Leontine Linen's monogrammed bed pocket. With it's pale yellow and cream colorway, it just seems to scream Edith... don't you think? :)

"The hall was arcaded, with a gallery supported on columns of pale yellow marble. Tall clumps of flowering plants were grouped against a background of dark foliage in the angles of the walls. On the crimson carpet a deer-hound and two or three spaniels dozed luxuriously before the fire, and the light from the great central lantern overhead shed a brightness on the women's hair and struck sparks from their jewels as they moved."

-Edith Wharton, The House of Mirth

Macau trực tuyến BaccaratCreativity at Work: Miranda Brooks

By now, you've surly seen Heather Clawson's debut book, Habitually Chic: Creativity at Work, in stylish boutiques about town (or better yet, you already own it!). If you haven't had a chance to flip through, I highly suggest doing so. Not only is the book beautiful, but the content is highly motivating. All of the individuals featured have found success doing what they love and it shows; their work spaces are more like shrines than offices.

Couture landscape designer Miranda Brooks' Manhattan studio, also known as my newest obsession, is a wonderful example. The easy English elegance typical of her work translates beautifully into a creative space... that Hugo Guiness poster casually taped onto a whitewashed brick wall? Those well-loved, oversized chintz throw pillows? The dime store jar filled with fresh tulips fresh? Stunning! When I grow up, I want this. Now do you see what I mean by motivating? :)

Habitually Chic: Creativity at Work is unfussy, raw, and seriously, seriously inspiring. In other words, you need it. Plus, you're going to love the way that it looks on your bookshelf (beacuse let's be real - that matters to people like us).
