The Bedrooms of Great Writers
Let’s be honest: To some degree, we’re all voyeurs.
Admit it. If you knew J.K. Rowling lived down the street from you, wouldn’t you linger a little bit as you drove past her house–maybe just to catch a glimpse of her writing her next novel in her gold-laced hammock held up by diamond-crusted ropes?
Take it a step further. What if you could see into the bedrooms of your favorite authors? That’s kind of weird, I know. But since Apartment Therapy has already done all the hard work, you don’t have to be a creepy stalker! Check this out.
Classy bedroom. Lots of books. A fireplace. Love the hardwood. Honestly, this doesn’t look much like a bedroom. Looks more like a sitting room. But what would you expect from Woolf, who wrote novels that didn’t really look like novels?
Honestly, I didn’t expect this from Hemingway. I’m a little disappointed. The headboard and furnishing seems a little….dainty. I thought Hemingway’s bedroom might include mounted deer heads, a gun rack, and maybe a home brewing kit.
Good Lord, Hugo. That’s ugly dude. It looks like someone puked Elmo all over the walls. And is that carpet on the walls or is it some type of textured wallpaper? If I lingered in this bedroom for more than 5 minutes, I think I would have a seizure.
This looks like my bedroom in college. Was Will that hard up for, like, a real light? A bookshelf? Some wall art? According to Apartment Therapy, that’s an outline of Faulkner’s novel, The Fable, on his wall.
Love it. I can see her writing poetry in here, can’t you? Classic furniture. Looks like a nice view. This is relaxing.
