Recently I curated the home of Sylvia Plath and wrote of her influence on my young life as a woman. Well, the writer second only to Plath on my young burgeoning conscious was J.D. Salinger, and he is the inspiration for today's Classic Author House Curation on ETSY & now Polyvore. I've used a graphic, black & white color scheme paired with bold pops of deep red to create a decor that would appeal to the author if he were alive today.
I can still vividly remember the effect that reading "Catcher in the Rye" had on me when I was young. I connected so deeply to the inner thoughts of Holden Caulfield, but that is why the piece resonates with so many young people. Salinger truly captured the restlessness one experiences during that age. You know those books that make you sad to finish? "Catcher in the Rye" was like that for me. I recently watched an incredible documentary directed by Shane Salerno called, "Salinger." It's quite a fascinating look into the mysterious author's life. After watching the documentary, I recently delved into reading some of Salinger's other works like, "Raise High The Roof Beam, Carpenters," and "For Esme- With Love & Squalor." They did not disappoint. Apparently, some other unpublished titles are due to be released in the near future, which will be great fun to anticipate for the fans like myself.
