Welcome!Â Thank you so much for visiting The Writer & Residence.
I’m Anna, and I write from small-town Pennsylvania, cataloguing my adventures in decorating and fixing up my first home, a 1920s brick tudor that I’ve fallen madly in love with. My blog is both a love letter to my house and a creative journal capturing my ideas and inspiration for living well at home.
I post two to three times weekly on interior design and home improvement projects, including “featured interior designer” posts and book reviews highlighting interior design books of note. I love comfortable, classic interiors with a contemporary feel.
I also enjoy blogging about small-town life and local community events, food and cooking, my gardening triumphs and tribulations, and my dog, Archie the Clumber Spaniel.
One of my passions is writingâ€”I work as an editor, have taught college English, and have a PhD in Victorian Literature. It is my hope that, in addition to being a forum for sharing interior design inspiration, The Writer & Residence could become (should I be so bold!) a place for sharing personal essays on living a creative life.
Thank you again for stopping by my blog, and please feel free to commentâ€”comments are always welcome, and I would love to hear from you!
