friday fun and weekend reading

The November issue of House & Garden arrived at my house yesterday.  To my delight, Gwyneth Paltrow, Thomas O’Brien and Richard Meier are all in one issue!  (all my fav’s) 

I have never met Gwyneth Paltrow, so I don’t presume to know her at all, but she has always come across to me as so authentic, truly herself, genuine, classic (kind of like Julianne Moore), which I guess is why I will watch almost any movie that she makes.  And her Hamptons house is as wonderful as I would have imagined, really just like her (or how she seems to me!).

It reminds me that in striving to live an authentic life myself, I need to be aware of how my home may or may not reflect that.  Not only should our homes support how we truly live, but the things we surround ourselves with should reflect both who we are and who we want to be.  Ooh.  I feel another post about House Thinking coming on!
