Mr A and I have only gone and become bloody homeowners.
We weighed up locations for a good 3 minutes. Stay within zones 1-3 of London, live in a match stick box but be around pals and have a minute commute to work. OR, move to somewhere like Mars (Kent/Surrey etc.), get a roomier home and spend the money we’re saving…on transport.
With that, we now own a whole 500 sq. ft in South East London! Being a first time buyer wasn’t stressful enough, clearly, as we only went ahead and knocked all the internal walls down. We’re rejigging the floor plan to make the most out of the iddle space to make it sweeter to live in whilst keeping future re-sale in mind. Naturally with that, Pinterest has been the third wheel in our relationship and above is all the home porn we’re loving on.
We’ve done 2 months of manual labour ourselves (around work) to keep the costs down and we’re now at the stage now where our builder can join the fun. We’ll be moved in just in time for dressing the Christmas tree and hope to have all the finer details nailed before Cadbury eggs dominate every shelf, ever. I’ll share the outcome nearer the time, but for now, you can see me adding liked items to my interior shop, here.
If you know of any scandi/ mid century modern furniture sites or even instagram accounts, please do share by commenting here or @ing me on my social channels. The links at the top right and bottom of this page!
But for now…i’ve got rubble to clear, m’dears x
