Hooray! This has been a long time coming but I’ve finally finished our living room, and shot and edited all the photos. Those of you that have been following along may know that we moved flat in November, leaving our one bed Victorian terrace flat behind and jumping ship to a two bed new build flat. If you’d asked me previously I would have said confidently that I never wanted to live in a new build. I loved the character of older houses and despite their constant upkeep issues I couldn’t fathom the idea of making a cosy, comfy home in a clinical looking block of flats where each interior was a generic copy of the one next door. That was until I saw our little gem. After being told Nick’s new job would be full time from home back in September, we knew we needed more space and so I casually had a peek online and seeing the flat listed I couldn’t believe it was for real, particularly as it wasn’t up for much more than we were currently paying. Surely they had one of those fancy camera lenses that fools you into thinking a place is double the size? On first hand inspection we realised it was 100% for real! We fell in instantly fell in love and set to work on the rather troublesome process of trying to break our previous contract and time the move right. Might I add that all the paperwork and background checks that comes as standard in the London rental market make you feel like you’re literally buying a house!
