On the Reno: Part 10

October 31, 2016 - 9:28 am 1 Comment

Another hectic week has just passed, culminating in the carpeting of the two front rooms, the release of a couple of hundred books to their new shelves, and the establishment of my office. This picture on the left, taken from the room to be my office, reminds me of something our wonderful Australian author, Drusilla Modjeska, has said about the  artists, Stella Bowen and Grace Cossington-Smith, in her books Orchard and Stravinsky’s Lunch. Both these Australian artists produced domestic interiors without people in them. She said the open doors of these studies which always lead into other spaces, reveal infinite possibilities. The picture on the right gives you some idea of the colour of the carpet. It is a dark brown, called “chocolate sisal,” and it is perfect, I think, with the green walls and white ceiling and trim. This part of the much bigger room is the far end from the bookshelves featured in last week’s blog, giving you some idea of how the space has been arranged so far.20161031_reno_1084
