FIND OUT WHO THIS WOMAN IS and SEE WHY HER HOME INSPIRES US>>
In searching for something to put it all in perspective, we ran across a slideshow from the New York Times about the home of well-known fashion designer Sigrid Olsen. Until last year, Sigrid designed clothes under her own label for Liz Claiborne. She has since traded in her spacious home for a tiny bungalow in the Rocky Neck art colony of Gloucaster, MA.
What you don't learn from the slideshow is that Sigrid battled breast cancer a few years ago, which ultimately led her to back to her earlier love of painting.
The recent shootings remind us how fragile life can be. We believe the choices we make about where to live and how to live should reinforce what is really important to us. In Sigrid's case, it isn't a spacious mansion or a lot of high end furniture that brings her joy. It's a small home in a lovely little community where she can pursue her passion for art and spend time with her family.
So, to answer our own question: We examine the homes of celebrities to find inspiration and at the same time learn more about what's important to them and ourselves.
Tell us, does your home inspire you? Does it reinforce what is really important to you?
