The family loves interesting things, and has a tendency to keep them. On the dining room wall, a reproduction of Durer's woman of Nuremberg; an etagere with an infinite number of fascinating objects; next to that two botanical prints we bought for MFW at a print shop on Museum Street in London. On the table, a salt and pepper set in the shape of a poodle wearing sunglasses sitting on a chair; the newspaper with Ellen and Richard's wedding announcement. In the hallway, Durer's rabbit. In the living room, a photo of the Berlin bust of Nefertiti (a survivor of the fire); on the coffee table, a vase of gold-plated real roses - a creepy gift from an friend.
