I keep thinking of new things the house needs.

- a Tiffany lamp with a jewel-toned shade
- a Ganesha in an alcove in the entranceway
- a wooden spice rack
- copper pots
- guest slippers
- floor pillows
- a barometer
- a wing chair
- a room with a ceiling painted to look like the sky
- wooden floors
- a clock that chimes the hours

- a room devoted to books, and other rooms that have deep seated, long abiding crushes on books
- gargoyles
- visiting cats
- a dumbwaiter
- heated towel racks
- a rubber duck in every bath
- theme rooms
- a breeze in the gardens
- a pole, a lyra, and aerial silks
