it’s so you

WHEN I WAS GROWING UP, two of my mother’s closest friends, Joanne and Mary, had an interior-design business, which was very serendipitous for us. Though my mom has her own distinct style, she needed a little help from her (talented) friends to redo an old house on a budget, while running a business and raising a family.From the start, I remember Joanne and Mary never set out to fill our house—or any other, for that matter—with trends. As a cautionary tale, Mary would joke, “Just look at what happened to all those avocado-colored kitchens everyone had to have in the ’70s.” More often, I’d overhear things like “That’s so Grace [my mom]” or “Bill [Dad] will like that,” as they pored over paint chips and fabric swatches at our dining-room…

head into the studio

The term artist-in-residence truly hits home in the work spaces of these American masters. Pay a visit, and leave with a newfound appreciation.Thomas Hart BentonStep into the Kansas City, Missouri, abode of the 20th-century painter and muralist, and see the space just as he left it, with clusters of paint-stained brushes and even a stretched canvas intended for his next masterpiece.mostateparks.comGeorgia O’KeeffeFrom her adobe home in Abiquiú, New Mexico, you can spot this icon’s frequent focal points, like the shimmering cottonwood trees growing nearby and her green patio door.okeeffemuseum.orgNorman RockwellA Shaker-style carpenter helped the prolific American illustrator turn his Stockbridge, Massachusetts, carriage house into what he called his “best studio yet.” ■…

a room with a view

FEATHERED FRIENDSMy canary cage, a replica of one from early-1900s France, is painted black to match the other furniture. On warm days, I open the sliding doors in the room to let in fresh air.WHEN I RESTORED MY FARMHOUSE in Bedford 15 years ago, I allocated a portion of the kitchen for a home office. I thought it would be a good place to handle correspondence, do my planning, and even write. I outfitted a counter with a desktop computer, a printer, a scanner, a Sonos music-control center, and a wall-mounted large-screen TV. Since then, my at-home “duties” have expanded: I often hold meetings in the kitchen, which is also home base for my four dogs and two cats. It’s where my staff takes coffee breaks (the big espresso machine…
