This country house belonged to one of my favorite writers, Tolstoy. It makes me want to cry with joy. What a perfect placement of images and art. It has character, and evokes a feeling of pure warmth, and wonder. What is the story of the persons life that lived there? Why are sooo many houses today looking like everything in them was purchased to look like a catalog, and not CREATED in an AUTHENTIC way...
The bench on the back wall?? How beautiful is that???
19th century Russian house of writer Tolstoy, where he wrote War & Peace, and Anna Karenina.
Found these images from one of my favorite blogs...balustrade and bitters
