Audrey Hepburn's Home
Today is the anniversary of Audrey Hepburn's death at her home. In so many ways, she was my alter-ego...a true role model.
I admired her for her simplicity, her freshness, and the fact that she was so untouched by Hollywood. She did what she could to make the world a better place.
Audrey lived in Tolochenaz, Switzerland, in a nine-bedroom farmhouse. When she bought it in 1965 she named it La Paisible, which means "the peaceful place." Audrey lived in Holland during the worst years of WWII and she choose Switzerland because she said there would never be a war there.
Audrey was such a private person that she would have never allowed the interior of her home to be photographed. Too bad, because I would loved to learn more about her by observing the objects she surrounded herself with.
