Now back to my idea: I have been thinking about turning our sitting room into a home office for me, moving two armchairs and a coffee table into the living room and putting a desk instead. I have a chaise lounge in there, which I would keep, and I would put shelves up against one wall. It's a bit of a selfish act, I know, but the thing is that right now I'm the only one who really uses the sitting room, and my husband has found his place in the study room, which I haven't. When both of us are using the desk in there it usually turns into a clutter rather quickly because I tend to surround myself with stacks of books, magazines and notebooks. He doesn't mind, but I do. I like having my own space (I call it the 'A Room of one's own by Virginia Woolf'-syndrome), and I also like the luxury of being able to lean back in a chair with my feet on the desk. In Luxembourg I had my own office space or corner and I miss having a space like that. If I go for it I would have a view to our driveway and part of the quiet street, which is nothing to complain about.
