The Simple Life

This morning my heart literally skipped a beat when I turned the page of my latest issue of Selvedge to discover a one of a kind property and creative haven which I must share. Host to small personable groups of artists and designers, J Morgan Puett, ex- US fashion guru, welcomes visiters with open arms. Cloaked in an unusual palette of earthy dark tones with hints of light coloured linens, this Pennsylvanian property creates an identifiable backdrop for guests to embark on a truly inspirational experience.

Fondly named Mildred's Lane after the previous owner Mildred Miller who lived there her entire life, Puett and her partner, Mark Dion affectionately called 'Peabody', eccentrically embrace the purity of simpler times. Ten years in the making and continually evolving, Mildred's Lane is quite simply a living, breathing art installation.
