Just as we imagine the sorts of people who embody the style of Marc Jacobs, Prada or Alexander McQueen, I’ve always loved imagining the characters that inhabit interior spaces. Many of you already know my love of interior design, and many of you know my passion for writing. So, let’s do both. Why not?
This isn’t your typical beautiful rooms list. These rooms are alive. Here are beautiful rooms and the characters who inhabit them. It’s time for pale pink to step into all of her variations.
She reads Jane Austin. She goes braless. She once slapped a guy for disrespecting her dog.
She reads Charles Baudelaire. She orders Amaretto sours at the bar. She thinks dogs are more trouble than they are worth. Her plants are her pets.
She listens to Joe Pug. She drinks her coffee black. She can dance for hours with barely any rest.
She reads Virginia Woolf. She expects everyone to dress elegantly for her dinner parties. She spends hours gardening on the weekends.
She reads Edgar Allan Poe. She chews her nails when she’s stressed. Bread and butter is her favorite meal.
She reads Dostoyevsky. She’s fascinated by any talk of astronomy. Her and her kids twice a year ditch school and work for a good time.
She reads Sylvia Plath. She drives like a runaway bank robber. She’s writing a dystopian novel that centers around bicycles and women’s dresses.
She doesn’t read much. She prefers documentaries. She’s working on her own film currently, about women and travel.
She reads Emily Dickinson. She likes to play her guitar on Saturday afternoons. She’s terrified of deep water.
She reads Domino Magazine. She’s saving up for a scooter. She chews gum like a camel.
She reads F. Scott Fitzgerald. She eloped when she was 20. It didn’t work out. She’s taking surfing lessons and is an excellent student.
Miami Déco color paint series by Alcro.
She listens to blues music. She can eat a bag of popcorn alone. She’s a science fiction junkie.
Thanks for taking this journey into my mind. I hope you liked the format of this post as I enjoyed making it. You know I like to push tradition a little bit. Tell me, which was your favorite room? Or person? Or combination of the two? And please do feel free to mix and match. I think that would be an incredible board game. You heard it here first. I’m off to go make it!
