Creative Living sidesteps the world of carefully constructed interior design images, instead diving into the liberated and nonconformist atmosphere of offbeat beauty and artistic delights. The homes of more than 20 international style icons and tastemakers are profiled across Italy, France, America, and Australia—from the studio and archives of Barnaba Fornasetti and the New Orleans home of Anthropologie artist and designer Rebecca Rebouche to the home of Bella Meyer, Marc Chagall’s granddaughter and one of New York City’s most popular floral designers. Lea is an incredible storyteller with a deep understanding of the creative spirit. Tracing the journey from unusual childhoods to bohemian, often unorthodox, adult worlds, each profile reveals the twists of fate that have allowed each person to realize their full creative potential in the spaces they live and work in.
