mildred's lane








I happened upon the New York Times article and slideshow about J. Morgan Puett and her property a couple weeks ago. Her home is incredible. She views it as an ever-changing work of art. There are so many beautiful objects and so much attention to detail. She also does summer artist-in-residencies and workshops. This looks like such a beautiful place to visit.

Here's a sliver of the article from the New York Times:
"Along with her 8-year-old son, Grey Rabbit, and a changing cast of friends and romantic partners, she has built a home that is an ongoing experiment in art, design and aestheticized living, an artist colony conceived in the communal spirit of 20th-century institutions like Roycroft and Black Mountain College, with her own house, just now being finished, at its heart."
