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...
