Required Reading: A Room of Her Own: Inside the Homes and Lives of Creative Women

June 18, 2021

New from Australia-based writer and photographer Robyn Lea, A Room of Her Own: Inside the Homes and Lives of Creative Women is worth a spot on your coffee table. It’s equal parts biography and interior design study, featuring 20 artistically inclined women around the world and their living spaces. Here’s a glimpse:

Fashion Designer Marta Ferri in Milan
