Gwyneth Paltrow must have noticed that the energy of her home was not pretentious enough and needed something that matches her perfectly steamed vagina and coffee enema(ed) ass. So Gwyneth decided to change the energy of her house by adding more books. Sounds simple enough…. well it would be if this wasn’t Goopy we were talking about. Gwyneth went ahead and hired a PERSONAL BOOK CURATOR to expand her book collection with books that she’ll probably never read but will impress her snobby friends and will match the color of her $10,000-a-roll swan intestines wallpaper.
Gwnyth Paltrow has taken a page out of her own book.
The 46-year-old Goop founder, who has endorsed everything from vaginal to “conscious uncoupling” really out-Gooped herself by once hiring a personal book curator, professional bibliophile Thatcher Wine, to expand her book collection and design a dream library for her home.
Ok, not to brag, but we’ve had a personal book curator for years. She’s our local librarian (Jen M!), and because of how famous and cool I am (or more accurately how disinterested I seem), she actually picks out my kids books for FOR FREE. Take that, GOOPY!
Thatcher Wine explained his process:
“I looked at books she already owned, which focused on fashion, art, culture, photography, and architecture, as well as books that her kids liked. We expanded on those topics, and for the kids, we included a selection of classics that we thought they might like as they got older.”
The library expert broke down his curating process, saying that each tome was hand-picked to fit the energy of the room.
“First, think about what you are trying to accomplish,” he said. “Is there a story you are trying to tell? A color palette you want to achieve? Then think about how that might work within the context of your home and available space.”
Next, he said to, obviously, “Acquire the books.”
Finally, he added that one can “Arrange your books in a way that makes you feel comfortable and looks inviting. It may take a few hours to get it just right.”
Wine has curated libraries for the NoMad Hotel as well as stars Laura Dern and Shonda Rhimes.
Thatcher Wine not only has an amazing name, but he has an amazingly easy gig going too. All he had to do was fill Goopy’s shelves with nothing but books by Gwyneth Paltrow and his job was done! Seeing her name all over her shelves probably made her spark so much joy that her vagina jade egg caught on fire.
