“Hemingway in Cuba”


Description from Smoky Rose: I have a National Geo book, a gift from my brother's wife - full of the most beautiful photographs - great stuff for inspiration. Last night found this picture of the hotel room in Old Havana, 1929, that Hemingway lived in. Rich browns and ivorys - an Oriental style rug of browns, peaches, with a tiny touch of aqua - that room would be as fashionable today as it was then.

    Yup, Ivy, I thought of you when I saw it – and read of how he loved Havana.

    Remember the …. what was the furniture line that used to advertise their Hemingway line?…anyway – yeah, super dark woods – not as pricy looking as the stuff in the furn commercial – more conservative – but niiiiiice. very nice.

    was it Ethan Allen?…..they had a whole Caribbean line of dark woods… needless to say, in this economy, they’re not advertising!
