Creative practitioners, philosophers, and rebels, the women chronicled in this volume refuse to compartmentalize or neglect any of their talents or interests. Instead, their lives are a canvas for their artistry. We see it in their homes and studios, on their tables, and in their wardrobes.
Equal parts biography and interior design study, A Room of Her Own features twenty extraordinary women and takes us on a private tour across the world into their personal and professional domains. Among them are painters, sculptors, writers, chefs, designers, jewelers, curators, makers, and directors. While each woman has navigated a unique path, they are united in their refusal to play by the rules of others.
Taking in the likes of the grand, sweeping halls of a castle in the Austrian countryside, a convent-like property in Mexico, and a cozy home on the banks of the Hudson, this book celebrates the homes, philosophies, design aesthetics, and practices of these inspiring multihyphenates.
