Editors' Notes

Sage Living author Anne Sage.

Want to feel better about your job? Your neighborhood? Your family? Start by reworking the space where you spend the most time: your home. Decor directly affects the way we think and feel about the jobs that we hold and the lives that we lead according to blogger Anne Sage whose new book, Sage Living (Chronicle Books) explores the way that our living spaces can bring happiness to our lives. In the lush new volume, Sage profiles 28 residences that have been redesigned to help occupants achieve their goals and thrive both professionally and personally. The idea may seem basic, but the rooms in the Rue Magazine cofounder’s book are intricate and beautiful. After Sage relocated from San Francisco to Los Angeles a few years ago, the Highland Park-based blogger writes that she realized, “Every question about my house (Should I shop vintage or new? How long can I go without a sofa, anyway?) has provided the chance to ask at a more profound level, Do I want this in my life? Do I need this in my life?” Being intentional about the interior design plans she made helped Sage create a mindful home that brightened her outlook on life. As Sage recounts the unique stories of the women, men, kids, and pets who occupy each of the living quarters in her book, she talks about their emotional well being and how they have altered their attitudes and feelings by reworking their dwellings. She also throws in a slew of useful tips to help readers reproduce the look and feel of the rooms. See for yourself.
