WHO TOOK THAT PHOTO IN MY LIVING ROOM? When your lunch guest is as crafty and charming as founder Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan of the popular Apartment Therapy blog network, all you need to do is turn your back for a moment and poof! He’s off peering at your world through his Canon–and look what happens: an impromptu take on where I live, write, and ruminate–which Maxwell published as a newsletter to his readers just the other day. I am always fascinated to see what surprises other people see in spaces that to me look so familiar. You can view read his email and see the other photos here. You may recall it was Maxwell’s wife, Sara Kate, who showed you my kitchen.
