a pair of Hello Kitty ‘‘ancestral portraits’’ 

the children’s room with its map-of-the-world bedspreads

I was reading the following article about the Touhami family in the New York Times Style Magazine this morning.  She is French and he is French-Moroccan and they have eclectic business ventures that result in their frequent relocation to interesting cities (not exclusively in the Francophone world).

"Ramdane Touhami and Victoire de Taillac living a life of nomads, hopping from continent to continent and city to city — Paris, Jaipur, Tangier — setting up camp in temporary lodgings and then, when it’s time to move on, literally pulling the rug out from beneath their feet.
 “We do two years per country,” Touhami says. “That is my rule.” And that would sound like a compromise in the couple’s relationship if it weren’t for their incredible talent for making themselves at home no matter where they are in the world."

at home (for now anyway) in Brooklyn
