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 and live in a match stick box but be around our mates, have a minute commute to work and benefit from the night tube OR move to somewhere like Mars (Kent/Surrey etc.), get a roomier home and spend the money we’re saving…on transport.
AND with that, we now own a whole 500 sq. ft in South East London and it feels insanely magical. 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 allllll the Pinny snaps we’re loving on.
We’ve done 2 months of manual labour ourselves around work to keep the costs down and we’re at the stage now where the 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! 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 (links at the top right and bottom of this page!)
But for now…i’ve got rubble to clear, m’dears x
