Interaction with guests

Atau lives there, but is more than likely away on tour or at his girlfriend's, so contact will be minimal.

This is a Japanese style, shoes off flat. The furniture is vintage, so care is appreciated. Please use coasters on the original 60's G-plan end tables. I live there, so am grateful of discretion and respect of my belongings. :-)
