“word to the wise” wednesday: gore vidal

Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.

Gore Vidal

Have you read this month’s issue of Architectural Digest with Elizabeth Taylor on the cover? ¬†Elizabeth’s beautiful home epitomized this quote!

    I love this photograph, the color of the room is so rich and the textures are so inviting. I would not be brave enough to go so dark but I think it is stunning. I just read my newest issue of AD and I could not help but think of Margaret Russell's talk about getting the call that Elizabeth Taylor had passed. I am glad her family wanted to honor her request to have the home photographed. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and adding me to your blogroll! You are so sweet! xo Amy R.

    I first read Gore Vidal in 8th grade. "Lincoln" was laying on my mother's sitting room table. I fell completely in love with Lincoln, Vidal, and progressive republicanism (where is that today, by the way?). That wasn't the last thing I borrowed from my mom; her fabulous taste wasn't limited to literature. Love the quotation, Traci.
