“If your everyday life seems poor to you, do not accuse it; accuse yourself, tell yourself you are not poet enough to summon up its riches” - #Rilke
, “Letters to a Young Poet” || One of the many magical moments in life: summer sunset by the ocean in #Newport #RhodeIsland
. Let’s ride off into the sunset.
The Commodore's grandson, Cornelius Vanderbilt II, became Chairman and President of the New York Central Railroad system in 1885, and purchased a wooden house called The Breakers in Newport during that same year. In 1893, he commissioned architect Richard Morris Hunt to design a villa to replace the earlier wood-framed house which was destroyed by fire the previous year. .
Hunt directed an international team of craftsmen and artisans to create a 70 room Italian Renaissance- style palazzo inspired by the 16th century palaces of Genoa and Turin. Allard and Sons of Paris assisted Hunt with furnishings and fixtures, Austro-American sculptor Karl Bitter designed relief sculpture, and Boston architect Ogden Codman decorated the family quarters.
The Vanderbilts had seven children.
. Their youngest daughter, Gladys, who married Count Laszlo Szechenyi of Hungary, inherited the house on her mother's death in 1934. An ardent supporter of The Preservation Society of Newport County, she opened The Breakers in 1948 to raise funds for the Society. In 1972, the Preservation Society purchased the house from her heirs. Today, the house is designated a National Historic Landmark. .

a view from the bookstore! 🌿 this winter has been a lot about organizing as many events as possible for the shop. Author events have always had a special way of inspiring. Pocket-size moments of time where strangers and friends come together (IRL) in appreciation or curiosity or any variation of the two to engage openly with ideas and art and each other. ❤️ We hope to see you at our next one! This Friday (2/22) @ 7pm @holmes.j.m

My grandma told me when she was younger, she used to live near a dock, we took her to Newport and she sat down and just stared out, reminiscing. It was so nice seeing her so happy just to be there. 💕❤️ #Bayfront #newport #2019 #February #grandma
