Hemingway once said, “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
But if writing is bleeding, you shouldn’t be bleeding from your ears. Hacking away at a manuscript — as kids tumble around in the living room, or a smug barista educates the coffee shop on what he’s been listening to lately — will probably not lead to your best work.
Introducing Cornelia, a writing studio, guest house, library and thoughts-jotting dojo built for bestselling author Cornelia Funke (Inkheart, The Thief Lord) by New Frontier Tiny Homes.

The tiny home titans at New Frontier, who’ve also designed a pop-up shop for Rhone, really nailed it (literally) on this one, creating a dwelling where inspiration is plentiful.
Features? Polished wooden floors, healthy lighting courtesy of the floor-to-ceiling glass front, shelving for books and trinkets, a couch for afternoon snoozes and a fold-out desk for making the magic happen. There’s even a lofted bed reachable by ladder over the bathroom and kitchen.
Ms. Funke: we are very, very jealous. And also eager to read what we expect to be the best-selling novel you'll write there.
