Our renovation journey Part 7 - Almost there
I just wanted to very quickly update you all on what has been happening at The House and that we are going to move in within two weeks. We are so so so close... So close I can almost feel it. So here are a few pictures of what we have achieved. If you need a reminder for what montrosity we started with, here is our house in its original glory.
There are so many exciting things in the house I am jumping with joy about - like my greyscale patchwork encaustic tiles, blackboard paint kitchen wall, stainless steel worktops with seamlessly integrated sink, the awesome lighting, and of course, our very modern statement staircase. I am loving the mix between Victorian period touches with contemporary style.
A few things are still missing - the staircase and electrics need the final touches, as well as the kitchen. Some paint on the skirting boards and coving. And that is it folks! (OK, that is not quite it, but we can move in nonetheless).
Can't wait to get decorating either - and I have a couple of fun collaborations too on that front for our toddler bedroom!
What do you think - love or hate the Victorian/contemporary mix?
