Selvedge – Issue 99
April / March 2021
“Virginia Woolf told us all that to create we need a room of our own. Recently, our homes have taken on greater significance in our lives far beyond simply providing shelter and a space for eating and sleeping. They have kept us safe, provided a place for work of all sorts, and have been a place for creative expression. In this issue, we reflect on the home as a place where we can simply do as we please and develop our creativity. There is no better expression of artistic originality than the beautifully decorated interior of Charleston farmhouse in Sussex, where Woolf’s sister Vanessa Bell and the painter Duncan Grant made their home more than a hundred years ago. The house welcomed a circle of artists, writers and thinkers of the day and its interior has inspired ever since. The house also formed the backdrop for our decadent party shoot Bohemian Rhapsody by Yuval Hen.
