scatter my ashes at charleston

I've been scheming a visit to Charleston, the East Sussex farm house of Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell, for years. In stark contrast to the minimlist aesthetic favored by all the cool kids, I love stuff. Lots and lots of stuff. My favorite homes are little jewel boxes that are liberally trinket-ed and personalized down to the baseboards. Fittingly, I consider Charleston my design mecca. And a photo shoot at Charleston? Brilliant!

I appreciate that the styling in this Harper Bazaar's UK November editorial complements Charleston's essence. I'm also mad about those pretty brown lug-soled shoes. They remind me of my friend Margaret's awesome Doc Martens that I've been jealous of for months :) If I weren't so poor right now, I'd probably buy these in the Cherry color. Maybe If I'm extra good this week karma will smile upon me and I'll find a pair at the thrift store...

Totally agree with you. Love pretty little things everywhere in my home! Pretty editorial but I wish I could see more of the house itself!

Go visit Charleston Farmhouse, it is exquisite and so special, as if the Bloomsbury's were still hanging out painting and writing there. You can see lots of great interiors (without models) and shots of the just-as-eclectic gardens here: http://www.charleston.org.uk After you go, cross about 12 miles of the gorgeous countryside to Borde Hill gardens and eat at Jeremy's. Equally incredible experience. www.jeremysrestaurant.co.uk

Thank you for this lovely post. I have been to Charleston and it is a marvellous place. There is also a church nearby that they decorated. I wasn't aware of the Chanel collection, so thank you for bringing it to my attention. I am hoping to paint some silk, inspired by Duncan Grant/Vanessa Bell's work.
