Moving house


One of the main reasons things have been so quiet of late is because we’re moving house this month. After six years in sunny New Cross, we’re upping sticks and moving just down the road to Brockley.

Much as I’ve loved our little top floor roost over the years, I’m thoroughly looking forward to a fresh start in somewhere new. While the living room discos, kitchen views of St Pauls and general nest-like vibes of an attic conversion have all been brilliant, the lack of garden, noise and rotting sash windows are not such a blast. There’s also the colour scheme; lime green, yellow, sky blue, brown and jade might be some people’s palette of choice, I guess it’s safe to say it’s not ours.

Needless to say, we’re still renting. This is London, after all. But the place we’re moving to is wall-to-wall white, wood floors and massive windows and high ceilings. The only colours used anywhere are grey and black. Oh and green, IN OUR GARDEN. Much more like it. There’s not too much that can be done in a rented property, but that’s not stopped me planning the decorative doodads that I am planning on bringing to the new place.

All the design pics above are from my Pinterest and the other pieces are as follows:

1. UP Tray, Fine Little Day

2. Cactus Shower Curtain, H&M Home

3. Pia Wallen Crux Blanket, Haus

4. Stockholm Cushion, Ikea

5. Tom Dixon Copper Pendant, Heals (well, maybe one day)

6. Tom Eckersley poster – maybe a print of it exists at the current LCC exhibition?

PS We know Brockley pretty well, but any pro tips always welcome!
