The Chic Assignment Check-In October 2021| Corelli x Rilke

Welcome to The Chic Assignment Check-in for October. We are going to learn 5 interesting facts about Corelli, and dive into Rilke's transcendent poetry. 

Chic Assignment No. 1 Corelli Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 8 

Arcangelo Corelli (1653 - 1713) was an Italian violinist and composer in the Baroque era. We are listening to his concerto grosso op. 6 no. 8 this month. Even though this is known as The Christmas Concerto, it is also wonderful to listen to in autumn. We are learning 5 fun facts about Corelli from the Orchestra from the Age of Enlightenment. 

Chic Assignment No. 2 Enjoy the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926)

Rilke was an Austrian poet and novelist. You can read his poems for free online at the Poetry Foundation or you can read a book of his collected poems.  Today I'm sharing his biography and a selection of his excellent poetry. 

Chic Assignment No. 3 Stock your freezer for the winter 
I shared a chest freezer organization and bake with me video this month to help motivate you to prepare your pantry for the upcoming winter. 

Chic Assignment No. 4 Define your interior design style 
In my blog post on 5 Ways to Create a Jewel Box Room, I share our interior design style with you. How would you describe your own interior design style? Let us know in the comments.
