Edith Wharton: Influencing Design in Literature and At Home

you may be familiar with the literary works of Edith Wharton, she also was profoundly influential on the field of interior design. Before turning to fiction, Wharton wrote The Decoration of Houses, which has been called “arguably the most influential book ever published by an American on interior decoration and design.” This course will provide a fascinating look at this multi-faceted, talented woman—connecting her personal history and aesthetic approach with the elaborate settings she created for her fictional characters and her own family. Join us for an evening filled with turn-of-the century elegance and grace, from old New York to rural Massachusetts to the grand boulevards of Paris.
