A great read…

I am currently reading (and loving!) The Age of Comfort: When Paris Discovered Casual and the Modern Home Began by Joan DeJean. Combining history, architecture, decor, and fashion, the book follows the transformation of society from rigid, public countenance to a society that celebrates the right to privacy, comfort, and amenities.
