"A Decorator’s Life" - Elsie de Wolfe

"I am going to make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life."
(Interior Designer Elsie de Wolfe *1865 - 1950. America´s first decorator - A Rebel in an Ugly World)

A Decorator’s Life
“I was an ugly child and I lived in an ugly age,” wrote Elsie De Wolfe in her memoirs. “From the moment I was conscious of ugliness and it’s relation to myself and my surroundings, my one preoccupation was to find my way out of it. In my escape, I came to the meaning of beauty.”
