i got back to dc on monday night & i am now busy packing up things we will need in durango. including all of our architecture books, material samples & of course my clothes! i am also trying to see some of our dc friends as well as visit some of my family that live in maryland.
in saying goodbye to dc/maryland i decided to take some photos of the beautiful room that björn and i have lived in off and on for the last 3 years. this is in the apartment of his amazing grandmother in a lovely little spot called sumner village. it is a beautiful little enclave only steps from the district line.
our room is a showcase for grandma's collection of native american and southwestern art. we have added our own little touches over the last three years & we are super sad to leave it for the next few months. here are a few photos that i took this morning that i hope you enjoy!
|Native American rugs, masks & prints.|
|A dark picture of our beautiful forest view. The White House is only 6 miles from this!!|
|An "Indian" lamp, I made those coasters using balsa wood & the laser cutter at my old job!|
|A sweet little painting by my Grandfather, Elwood|
|Cookbook shelf; vintage lighters & purfume bottle from Venice.|
|Björn's dishes he picked up in Italy.|
|Björn's favorite car- Karhmann Ghia, a gift from me.|
|Really cool papier mache mask- Kermit likes it!|
|Some cool objects on the window sill.|
|An old soap box I purchased at an estate sale. |
It holds our books, magazines, etc & fits wonderfully under the window.
