today I came across this lovely interview of novelist couple martin amis and isabel fonseca, and thought this photo of them embodies my ideal home: a big library, a simple and clean air eclecticity and a gently worn effect. oh, and somebody to love would help, too.
amis on fonseca:
"I rely tremendously on her beauty. She looks very nice when she's asleep and she wakes with a smile. It's an extraordinary thing. It's very unfair, as all things to do with beauty are, but it's a fact. I rely on it for joie de vivre. It's proof of her equilibrium as well. Your happiness determines your demeanor in the world."
