Over the weekend I moved into my new apartment here in London and I am in love. As you may recall I wrote about wanting to live in a period house which I was able to get along with a fully renovated apartment – the best of both worlds. And because the people who write descriptions for real estate website’s must have degrees in English literature mixed with creative writing I will share with some of their descriptions straight off the website along with the photos I took on Saturday as I moved my suitcases in.
“This is a stunning large luxurious two double bedroom second floor flat with access to a shared garden. The property has just been fully refurbished to a very high standard, providing modern contemporary living with a state of the art fully equipped kitchen with the benefit of quartz worktops, integrated appliances and easy to clean wooden flooring. Fabulous open plan fully furnished lounge/kitchen. Two large comfortable carpeted bedrooms. The bathroom comprises of a bathtub, rain shower head, mixer and wand and underfloor heating.” Well there you have it – a very poetic description and now my photos and captions:
Brand new kitchen with almost every appliance (dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer) is hidden
The only thing in my fridge on move-in day 🙂
Gorgeous overhead lighting
The kitchen table and view of the period homes across the street
Very excited about this L-Shape couch and the TV it will soon face
My very new bedroom furniture and gorgeous morning light
A sleek, compact, and modern bathroom
I am very excited about this bathtub and rain shower!
The view of my shared garden (with the two other apartments in my townhouse – half paved and half grass) that the builders are finishing
The only decoration I purchased prior to move in – a photo of New York I took in January
This apartment is located in the London neighborhood of Islington and is very close to the subway, lots of cute bars, restuartns and cafes plus a great supermarket. Stay tuned to see how I turn this very stark white and grey space into my own!
Thoughts on color suggestions for my London flat?
