We’ll admit it. We hadn’t previously thought about Asheville, North Carolina much. But after our latest Mother profile, we can’t get the place outta our heads. We blame the sudden bout of wanderlust on Connie Matisse, the chief creative officer of earthy-chic pottery brand East Fork (which she runs alongside her husband, Alex). Below, the mother of two (Vita Rose, 3, and Lucia “Lulu” Marcel, 1), shows us around her charming abode, takes us on a walk over to her cute-as-a-button shop, rattles off her list of top Asheville eateries and other haunts (click on ‘em & swoon), and talks frankly about motherhood, career, and carrying forth the artistic legacy of the Matisse name (yes, that Matisse!).

This was seriously the most refreshing profile. I love the openness and honesty. Kids are wonderful, beautiful, celestial beings but sleep can suck and you feel constantly guilty and there’s no balance and that’s OK. Thank you!

I loved this feature and Connie’s honesty and outlook on life and motherhood. Also, I totally relate to the all-night “nurse-wrestle-sleep” thing! We’ll sleep again one day… right?!

I really enjoyed reading Connie’s motherhood profile. I’ve been a long time admirer of East Fork and this interview is the most honest, non-bullsh*t / Ms. Perfect piece I’ve read here. Cheers to Connie!
