(mini) sneak peek: lena corwin

We have a little extra peek this morning! Lena Corwin is giving us a glimpse into her home in Fort Green, Brooklyn. Lena’s been a little busy lately — she has a fantastic new book of hand-drawn Maps (don’t miss the book giveaway) and a new baby — so she’s made sure that her home is a particularly calm oasis with mostly white walls and light, natural woods with a few splashes of color. Honestly, I feel a little calmer just scrolling through the photos! Thanks, Lena! — Amy A.
