More on the book itself tomorrow... but for today, I want you to think more about YOUR house. Do you live in a house like Holly's? One that's historic and has a name? I think Fox Hall is simply stunning, and so enjoyed being a guest there! It has a name and an interesting history.
Does your house have a name? Ours didn't...but we gave it one! I will tell you more about that in a post next week. If your house doesn't have a name, what is its "personality?" If you were building it and needed to name it, what would the name reflect? Think about houses with names....everything from Tara (Gone With the Wind) to Falling Water (Frank Lloyd Wright) to Winterthur. They indicate a real sense of place.... We'll talk about more of those next week....including Frances Schultz's adorable Bee Cottage!
Ok...pick up those cell phones or go to Twitter.com and tweet "Enter" to @ClassicPreppy for a chance to win The Pretty and Proper Living Room!
