Mary Glen 2004-2005  

I've been in Somerville for summer, fall, a very snowy winter and what is now starting to be spring. 

I was lucky enough to secure a consultation with artist,decorator and good friend Manya Goldstein, of Bellefontaine, PA in November.  Here are some of the changes.     

 Living/dining room

Manya  talked me into window treatments and I have to admit they really do make a difference.  
I love the table by the window with a nice view of the house across the street.

A day bed gives me room for visitors [and storage for papers underneath for now.] 

The handsomest mirror I have was a present from Manya [next to lamp on bookcase].

My desk is by the only phone jack --  I really like the way it works. The desk can be cleared off and even used as a buffet table.

Manya suggested the coat rack.  I'm still looking for ways to increase storage space. 
[Trying to get rid of some possession has also occurred to me.]

Have hung some pictures, playbills and prints. 

I'm still working on my  EJ Phillips website

The galley kitchen has surprisingly capacious cupboards.  I painted one wall Aegean blue, and replaced cupboard knobs.


I have my great-grandmother's spool bed that I had in Florida.


I've ended up with more mirrors than ever.
