Living Artfully is a beautifully illustrated account of the three main homes of Marjorie Merriweather Post (1887-1973) through the 1950s to 1970s. From 1957 onwards, Post resided at stately Hillwood in Washington, DC, for spring and autumn, retreated to Camp Topridge in the New York Adirondacks for the summer, and enjoyed the winter season at her glamorous villa Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. Post was one of America's most stylish and powerful women, and this book, strongly evocative of the lifestyle magazines of the period, offers a vibrant and intimate picture of life in each residence—for Marjorie Post, her guests, and her staff.
Estella M. Chung was formerly the head of oral history and curator of American material culture and history at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens.
