Homes filled with Objects Bought, Bequeathed, Beloved and worth Handing Down
By Hollister Hovey
Photographs by Porter Hovey
The Hovey Family moved here to Kansas City in Mission Hills when the girls were five and ten years of age. Even then they began the journey of rich heritage and history in their lives.
Now based in NYC they have been proclaimed as "The New Antiquarians" by the New York Times
From their Mother, Lana at a young age, "Remember girls, 'To thine own self be true' Shakespeare gave that advise, he was a very smart man."
One of their Mother's Hermes scarves from a trip to Paris with their father is framed above the mantel.
|A prized Scarlet Ibis gives their Taxidermy Collection a bright burst of vivid color.|
Hollister and Porters grandfather often went game hunting with a dear friend, we have come to know as L.L. Bean!
|You can barely spot the Wicker Coffin above the dressmakers models; this collector friend of the Hovey sisters plans this antique as her final resting place.|
With friends as varied as Alexa Romanoff, David Epstein of Internet Marketing fame, and Sean MacPherson the Hotel and Restaurateur, their is never a dull moment in the life and times of The Hovey Sisters.
Take this journey with a feeling of an appreciated past, present, and future. A book for generations who appreciate the feel of keepsakes, aged leather and riding boots in the entryway.
Hollister and Porter, world travelers, are ones never afraid to take a risk on an unknown quest! The kind of personalities that are offered a position just upon a casual conversation at an affair!
Another friend's home with collections everywhere and right at hand!
