There's something magically eerie about wandering the former homes of the world's literary greats. Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon, Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House, Pablo Neruda's La Sebastiana, and Pirandello's Sicilian farmhouse are all places I'd love to experience.
Thanks to the book Russian Houses, here's a glimpse inside the home Tolstoy once lived in. To think that this is the place where War and Peace and Anna Karenina were written excites the English major in me to no end! What I'm most drawn to in the space is the mix of seating options around the humble little table. I love that they've used a sofa with the chairs.
Beautiful wood floors and the curved benches evoke a sense of old world charm and elegance. The home now has me wondering even more about the real man behind the great body of work.
Which literary figure's home would you love to wander?
