Today marks the 112th anniversary of Ernest Hemingway’s birth and although he has been gone for a little over 50 years his work and style live on. Born in Illinois in 1899, Hemingway’s “distinctive writing style, characterized by economy and understatement, influenced 20th-century fiction, as did his life of adventure and his public image.” His body of work includes classics such as A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls and The Old Man in the Sea. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954.
His personal style was as distinctive as his writing. From the chandeliers in his Key West home to the cane chairs in Cuba, his love of travel is apparent in the decor of his homes.
