As I wrote last month, we moved up two floors in our same building. Moving into a flat with a very similar floor layout is a curious experience. The furniture is different and nicer, as are all of the other accouterments and details. It was a fun opportunity to reinvent things about the flat, including my work area. Anyway, there is a section of the living room, where I have a desk and books, and where R keeps some toys.
I was able to decorate the area using some of the Kuba textiles I collected during my two trips to Democratic Republic of Congo. With book cases.
The center is one of my favorites, though I don't know the artist (as I do for the other two).
When I sit at my desk, this is directly behind me. It is huge--about 10 feet long--but fits perfectly in this space.
And my desk.
