Dinner in hand, I came home to find the apartment aglow with yellow chrysanthemums courtesy of a student of Mr. Husband, so snapped a few photos while standing in the kitchen.
On our agenda at home? Mr. Husband has a major birthday tomorrow, we are planning the renovation of our kitchen cabinets (they are to my back in these photos), the wonderful 1880's carpet under the sofa and chairs is moving to the bedroom soon, and I have a book coming out. I look at this second photo, and my mind fills the blank wall space above the piano with at least one modern black-and-white painting in an old gold frame. I love gallery style paintings: they draw the eye up and make the space feel larger. It also suits the building, which was constructed in 1895-6, the apartment itself originally being the dining room. What can I say? It's New York living!
