Cressida, 55, is a dynamo of creativity. In her Hackney studio, her main work is producing a range of sheer, large silks, sold through her website and also at Charleston, the Bloomsbury Group’s country home in East Sussex, where her grandmother retreated in 1916 with artist Duncan Grant. “People have no idea what physical work printing is. It’s hard slog,” says Cressida.
All the Bells were and are artists. Raised in a farmhouse near Leeds by her father Quentin, a potter and academic, and her mother, Anne Olivier Bell, an art historian, Cressida was the youngest of three. Her elder brother, Julian, is a painter, and Virginia — now Nicholson — is a writer. “There were sculptures all over the garden and my father hand-sponged the bedroom I shared with Virginia.”

Het was één groot opknapproject, van vloer tot zolder, waar Sjak en Corrien zich op stortten. Hun jaren 20 huis levert het bewijs dat je ook met een klein budget – en vier rechterhanden – grootse dingen kunt doen

Ronnie and Jo bought the house in 1997 for just under £2million, and over the years it has hosted many lavish parties, dubbed ‘Woodfests’ by Jo. She once said the police would turn up on a regular basis — ‘they always came to tell us off’.
And in these photographs of the property, called Holmwood House, the decadence of the Woods’ rock’n’roll lifestyle is evident. The mansion has seven en-suite bedrooms over three floors. There is a separate cottage, lodge, garage building and swimming pool house. Jo, 55, had planned to keep the house after her 23-year marriage broke down when Ronnie, 63, left her for a Russian cocktail waitress in 2008.
But she recently told the Mail: ‘That house needs a big family with lots of kids running around. I don’t use most of it.’

James Dean moved into a fifth-floor walkup at 19 West 68th Street in 1953, right before he was cast in starring roles in "East of Eden," "Rebel Without A Cause," and "Giant," according to The Selvedge Yard. The studio apartment was miniscule, with just enough room for a bed, built in desk and a hot plate. The young actor didn't even have a private bath, and instead used a communal bathroom in the hallway.
Photos of Dean taken by Dennis Stock for LIFE magazine show the young actor inside his NYC home, amongst the many books and records with which he surrounded himself. Check out the photos below the link to see inside the studio the iconic actor once called home.
