The Sumptuous Academic will live in a house with many corners, dimensions and a slightly creepy feel to it. Seven gables optional. :)
The garden should feel like stepping into a children's storybook - the kind of garden in which all sorts of adventures could happen.
In the garden, notes of whimsy hint at the Academic's passion for collecting antique oddities and biological curiosities.
Inside, every space reflects the Academic's love of art and books, realising its full potential to display her favourite things.
Of course she'll need lots of comfy chairs she can plop down in and read all over the house!
Books, artwork, globes; the Academic's study is elegant yet cosy.
The Academic needs a glamorous kitchen so she remembers to take breaks from reading to make herself a nice meal!
The academic favours rooms that are graphically striking - harsh black and white with splashes of bright colour.
The strong black against the white walls reminds the academic of black type against a white page. It is visually striking and romantic.
Duck egg blue sets off the Academic's favourite black and white scheme nicely.
Chalk boards on the walls turn any room into a book waiting to be read.
She will have a typewriter for the tactile sensation of writing, just as she will not give up the tactile sensation of reading a book for the newest technological media.
Anitques, artwork, and technology share space on the shelves that aren't yet covered in books.
The Academic does not overlook the bathroom's potential as display space or as a room to read in!
Trees are not just a source of paper - they're beautiful! The Academic wants nature close to her. All the best adventures happen in forests.
This is the heart of her home - antiques, artworks, taxidermy and geological specimens, a lavish sofa and dark walls. It's like peering inside her mind.
