Knitting and sewing has taken a bit of a back seat of late as we think about (and start work on) our new home. But the creativity has just been redirected.
Back in February I shared pictures of our sewing/spare room that we decorated almost as soon as we moved in. It’s proving delightful – cosy and practical – with lovely peaceful views of East London flight paths and sunsets that the hubby and I find ourselves frequently admiring.
Things have slowed quite somewhat after the loft decorating. We have plans to knock out a few walls and do a new extension for a kitchen/living space, but a dodgy structural engineer put a few hurdles in the way (subsequently, we can tell you who to use and who to avoid if you’re looking for London Structural Engineer recommendations!). But it hasn’t completely halted and we have made some progress (more on the in a future post).
But first, I thought I would share some images of our new home – a 1902 early Edwardian terrace in Walthamstow, East London – from when we moved in back in December.
Bear in mind, this is how we’ve set things up to make it as homely as possible until we tackle the decor, which isn’t at all what we would go for. But these things take time.
