Description

But Charlotte Mason’s emphasis on the child’s capacity means that homeschooling in the CM method includes using unabridged versions of many classic works, as these original writings are considered living books, containing many details that stir up the imagination, which the retellings often lose. One of her main principles is that children have minds that are capable of understanding excellently-written literature. This is in contradiction to the popular view that children need their school lessons diluted down from the original language of the classic books. It was not exactly smooth sailing to get to where I am now. The seed for what is now Amber Interiors was planted the day I got fired from that assistant job. Around the same time, my daughter, Gwyneth, was born, and my husband’s career as a touring musician was coming to an end. We’d just bought our first house, in LA, and I decided to start a blog documenting our home renovation and DIY projects. Soon I had plunged full steam ahead into my own interior design business. Her chapters are: The Power of Color (white); It's All in the Details; Space and Flow; The Art of Styling. Twaddle: This is the term that Charlotte Mason coined to refer to books that are dumbed down for children.

Livability is my true north. The materials I use time and again all change with age and wear. Not only is that okay, it’s how you achieve more than a re-creation of what you’ve already seen, or what somebody else has done. You can do this, too—I promise.”—from the introduction Have a ginormous house. 6,000 square feet should be sufficient, as demonstrated by "Bu Round Two." If you can only fit two couches, a coffee table, and a big chair in your living room (as demonstrated in the "small space" that's 3x larger than my living room), you can still make it "comfy." I learned that even if I had the money, I wouldn't hire her. I like a lot of the decorative objects and furniture she finds, but the overall impression is of blandness. and all those empty white walls, and ceilings. I don't think this is what she wants people to get out of her style. Her subtitle mentions "all sorts of styles" but they come across as the same style: hers. A good example of living books would be classic books. Many of these books were originally written for children, but over the years, we have come to think of them as “hard” books that are for adults. In fact, that is why many of these classics have been adapted for younger readers. Some of the most appealing rooms are her kitchens, baths, and mudrooms. These hard-working areas are beautiful as well. Yes, some of the large expanses of marble seem designed to impress, as are the reclaimed French limestone floors, but they are beautiful.Homeschooling offers families more flexibility in the way that children can study and learn. Whereas the traditional picture of schooling makes use of textbooks and workbooks, the Charlotte Mason method is one educational philosophy that uses living books instead.

Livability is my true north. I don’t want you to worry about constantly fluffing your pillows. I gravitate toward things that look better with time, pieces that feel like they have stories of their own. I hoard vintage finds because I love a true patina that can’t be re-created in a factory. And the materials I use time and again—linens and leathers, brass fixtures, honed marble, white oak flooring—they all change over time. The way your sofa looks on the day it gets delivered is not the way it will look in a few years. Not only is that okay, that’s a good thing. That’s how you achieve more than a re-creation of what you’ve already seen, or what somebody else has. You can do this, too—I promise. My mother was a stay-at-home mom, always cooking or crafting, organizing our schedules, and keeping us busy learning and creating, pushing us to draw or play outside instead of plopping us in front of screens. My dad is a contractor who prides himself on "putting on his bags" and getting to work—his "bags" being the battered leather tool belt he wore with trashed skate shoes and shorts, no matter the weather. Even though he owns his business, he loves the feeling of tools in his hands, actually doing the work. Manual labor was never beneath him, and that tireless work ethic—and respect for the integrity of craftsmanship—has been ingrained in me. She looks for the perfect vintage object for the space; she does lots and lots of shopping. Do the clients bring nothing to the project but the space itself and the funds for her to decorate it? She seldom mentions working with the client. Apparently she does it all.

Designing a room with all the vibes comes down to how you layer your décor. The more you can mix the elements of your room—your pillows, objects, patterns, and lighting—the more finished it’ll feel: not too new, not too old, but just right. I took this book out of my library 100% due to the title. The title is misleading. Everything seemed one style. Solid white walls, wood floors, and lots of uncomfortable looking furniture. None of the homes looked anywhere near made for living. There was no sign of life in any of the photos (except for a dog, one room with what looked like artwork of an actual human, and one room that had a bowl of fruit).Layer things. Layer layer layer. How do you know what to layer? Just put things on top of each other and if it looks right, that's what you should layer. She seems to be showcasing a few specific houses that she decorated, but they all look alike. The pictures could come from any one of them.
