i decided against calling this post "hemingway steez."

While our living room trends toward Miles Redd, our bedroom is all Hemingway. When I promised Kevin a more masculine space, there was only one man to look to for decorating inspiration (and he had quite the menagerie, too... Authors! They're just like us!).

Finca Vigia, the Cuban home:
The living room; photo source unknown.
Clockwise, from top left: The office, photo taken by Jane LaFazio; entryway, via CNN; trunk & L.L. Bean boots via Town & Country; a vignette of a bull and Hem's boys, photo taken by David Lansing.

Just LOOKING these makes me want to become a genius globe-trotting alcoholic philanderer.

P.S. Stylish Hemingways, past and present:

  1. My husband loves Hemmingway and owns every single one of his works. I'll have to show him this! He had good interior design taste.

    1. Yes he did! Also, if you ever feel like just laying around (I feel that way 95% of the time, and I'm not even pregnant, so I can't imagine what you're going through!), The Paris Wife is an excellent way to spend a weekend. It's a fictionalized account of Hem's first marriage, and I couldn't put it down.
