Skyland Apartment  (AFTER)

The crown molding along ceiling and the long curtains makes the room look a bit more dramatic. French door knobs and push button light switches are a few little touches that add to the Parisian feel.
It has turned into a very comfy space. Everything has a home so we keep clutter to a minimum. A must when living in 468 square feet.

Notice the details to add interest under the window. I used picture frames and painted the area with semi-gloss Dover White by Sherwin Williams.
The walls are painted flat Netsuke by Sherwin Williams.

I thought I would post one of my favorite Zelda Fitzgerald quotes. It seems befitting since she was always in competition with Scott and I posted his earlier.

“I don’t want to live. I want to love first, and live incidentally.” ~ Zelda Fitzgerald

F. Scott Fitzgerald

F. Scott Fitzgerald

Fascinating man because of the life he led and the woman he married. A famous couple’s life helps us realize what the jazz era was all about. Their love story goes from a fairy tale to tragedy with lots of crazy living in between.

Quote- “The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.”


Scott began to write The Crack-Up essays while staying at the Skyland Hotel in Hendersonville, NC November to December 1935.
