This blog has been quiet for a while but, correspondingly, we haven't. As well as pressing on with second fix and final finishes and a very long list of jobs, we've started moving in, bit by bit.
We started with the books, which we have quite a lot of. They are now in place, if not fully and finally arranged, on our double-height sycamore bookshelves. Happily, the shape of the logs of the old tree that supplied us with the shelves can still be seen now all the books are on them. All in all, it's quite a striking library.
During the day the books are lit from above through our gold-tiled roof windows..At night they are lit by LED downlighters and our built-in Belgian modernist spun glass and metal lights. All a bit much? We certainly hope so.
