Hey. Happy Monday! How was your weekend?
Well, I have some really, really exciting news to share.
On Friday, John and I officially became London homeowners! As soon as those keys were in my hand, I jumped around like a maniac and flung open the French doors to our (!) garden before running upstairs and inspecting each room (there are four!) and bathroom (there are two!).
It all needs a bit of work and the painters are in as I type this, stripping wallpaper, sandblasting, and plastering and repainting the walls the perfect shade of "Pearl Grey" and "Morning Jewel 6" and our furniture isn't in until Sunday, but ... but!
We celebrated by taking an interior door off its hinges because we didn't like it, ordering Domino's for delivery to our new address and eating it over the stove, and going to Homebase, where we mixed paint and went a bit crazy in the Habitat sale.
So, this summer's going to be full of DIY-ing, furniture shopping, interior design website-browsing, and picture hanging. So much picture hanging.
I'd love to run ideas past you on this blog, if you don't mind. I'll occasionally be sharing new homeware buys, artwork round-ups, and favorite furniture picks. In return, I'd love to know all the homeware and decor sites you've been browsing these days!
I'm currently in love with the furniture and homeware at West Elm (which I'm so glad is finally in the UK), Anthropologie, and Zara Home - just to give you an idea of what we have in mind!
