Images link to their pins, where I've collected a few more and linked back to the original source.

Writerly Travels: The Mount
I first got the idea to write these little posts about writers' homes from a pair of posts I saw on Houzz. Edith Wharton co-wrote design and garden books in addition to her engaging novels (like The Age of Innocence, which I wrote about here) and put many of her design sensibilities into play in the home she had built in 1902. It was also the site of the composition of a number of her novels. The interior of the home is incredible and worth taking a look, but I would love to spend a few hours traipsing about the grounds outside and exploring the sunken secret garden...
