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!).
