Writer's . Spaces

Architectural Digest recently had a feature on the writing spaces of fifteen famous writers. Many were lovely, though I immediately was smitten with Gore Vidal's:



I love the artsy clutter and the mix of oversized/cushy furniture with more structured, classic pieces.

I also now want to go sit in Rudyard Kipling's study...



...and perhaps just breathe in some of the creative air that must still be lingering around such an amazing space.

Gasp! Rudyard Kipling's study is amazing. It is exactly as I would have imagined when I read his writing (which I haven't read much of yet, but my Grandfather recently gave me a 1940's set of Kipling books that I just love).

Oh, I know that rooms like Mr. Kipling's study are often described as "masculine" due to all the dark colors and wood and such, but I've always loved that sort of style. I'd love to have a room like that one day, but with a big huge comfy leather armchair in which to sit and read.

Eek. They're a bit much for me. As in, nice to look at, but I'm not sure I'd get much work done.

My writer's study would sooooooo not be AD right now...My old Barbie Tonka jeep that my kiddo plays with, two empty water glasses, stuff sticking out of the drawers, an amazon box littering the floor, pistachio shells...I gotta get off line and clean this dump! thanks for the inspiration!
