In 2011, before BFFs Kelly Stuart and Violet Gaynor had kids of their own, they launched The Glow — a glimpse into the world of inspiring, stylish moms. Swoon with us as we thumb through the archives in preparation for their next venture: an equally addictive book that'll feel right at home on your coffee table.
When the London-born, New York-raised artist Jemima Kirke
decided to have a child, she wondered how easily motherhood and creativity could coexist. Almost a year later, this young mother is proving that the two can mesh peacefully. The Brooklyn Heights
home she shares with her husband has a decidedly romantic feel; vintage treasures fill the eclectic space, while a beguiling mix of art — from Robert Mapplethorpe to Alfred Wertheimer
— cover the walls.
A RISD-trained painter, she became an accidental actress last year when her childhood friend, filmmaker Lena Dunham, persuaded Kirke to star in her indie hit film, Tiny Furniture
, as well as the highly-anticipated Judd Apatow-produced HBO series, Girls
. Artist, performer, mother, wife — Kirke deftly moves between each role with effortless charm.
