You’re probably sick of hearing me talk about moving by now. We’re 99% unpacked and mostly living normal every day lives at this point, even if we don’t quite have a space for everything yet. Although there a lot of things we want to change over the next few years, I think I really love this flat.
My favorite thing about this flat is the high ceilings. I love the sense of open airiness it lends to the space. The entry way is moderately functional. I have a plan to make this space bright and eccentric. There are some unsightly meters that need to be covered up, and the front door is absolutely hideous, but we’ll get there in the end.
Emily’s room still needs some furniture, but we’re waiting for her input before we make any major decisions. I think we might try to find some funky pieces for her at a charity shop. She’s sixteen, so I’m not about to presume what she would like.
Our bedroom has a ton of space, so we really need to look at some art for this space. I’m hoping to add a dressing table. We’re thinking navy with accents of orange and yellow for a color palette. My heart’s desire is to have a big fox print hanging above the bed.
The bathroom is definitely the most lacking, mainly due to the fact that there is absolutely no storage in this room. It’s also the room I care about the least. We’ll get to it eventually.
The living room is massive and structurally in good shape. This space really just needs decorating more than renovation. We are, however, thinking of building a bar in the alcove and a window seat in the bay window. We’ve had an idea to build a shelving unit around the tv for additional storage. I also have a project in mind to update the fireplace. Those brown tiles are not awesome.
The whole reason I was sold on this place is the spacious kitchen/dining area. For a tenement flat in our price range, this kitchen is downright massive. Eventually, the whole thing is going to get overhauled. The whole house is getting wood flooring, and additionally, we want to install white streamline cabinets, butcherblock countertops, and one of those oversize white farmhouse style sinks. If all my dreams come true, we’ll have an additional row of lower cupboards with additional counter space and a light blue vintage style fridge to match my KitchenAid mixer.
I can’t wait to test this place out by throwing our first party. This is going to be a wonderful home. Eventually. Let’s do it.
