Decorating the HemingWAY

"Prose is architecture, not interior decoration."  ~ Ernest Hemingway

I remember reading "The Old Man and the Sea" by Ernest Hemingway in high school.  I know he is a celebrated writer, however, I did not care for this book.  Years later, I started loving biographies and picked one up about Mr. Hemingway.  While his exit from this world was tragic, his life on this earth was passionate and full of vitality.  He lived life to the fullest, traveling around the world, writing and spending time with friends.  

I recently bought this print to add to the gallery above my bar cart.  It tickles me to no end!  After this purchase, I went looking for more Ernest Hemingway quotes.  There are more funny, smart and poignant snippets than one can count.

I will be decorating a man's study soon.  The masculine, collected look that symbolizes Ernest Hemingway's style would be a great jumping off point.

  • Faux animal hides
  • Outdoor elements


I know this space is literally Ernest Hemingway. I love the modern masculinity with a well edited array of accessories.

Have the best day ever!
