Peekaboo (part 14)

This is the porcelain vase I purchased from Bernardaud in Paris this past fall. Its orange colors along with the Bromeliad's bloom help brighten this room. For some reason saving my photos to the sRGB color space intensifies the reds in a bad way. Sigh.

The dining room, which is also my library, has always been difficult to photograph with natural light or any light for that matter. Both rooms face north and receive very little sunlight, but in wintertime with its leafless trees, more light is allowed to enter. So it was the ideal time to pull out my camera and photograph this space for the first time since the installation of the new Stark carpet. And of course, the lively vase with its feisty Bromeliad will provide a complimentary punch of color.

(above) The ceiling's light fixture is original to the house. At one time, by turning the round bottom knob, I could rotate between illuminating the bottom and top portions or the entire fixture. I did this one too many times—meaning this feature no longer works. At least there’s a dimmer switch.
