It’s really starting to feel a lot more cozy in here. The one thing we are still missing is our black leather sofa, but we were smart enough to keep Juli’s parents old sofa from the 70s. The sofa was originally upholstered in brown suede but unfortunately got re-upholstered in the 80s.

The two wishbone chairs work really nice as side chairs, but now we don’t have any dining chairs! You may have guessed a lot of our furniture was sold before we moved (we had to seriously downsize) plus the buyer of our previous house really liked our stuff and made us some offers we couldn’t refuse. Now we have to decide to get new dining chairs or new side chairs, no complaint here but where do you think the wishbone chairs look best?

The bay windows are much larger in person and provides such an amazing display area.

I really want to get some more glassware as these windows light up the glass in the nicest way.

I can’t wait till we string up our PH5 light over this table, it’s going to look amazing!

Juli picked up this vintage tea trolley from a family friend.

The Eco Spec no V.O.C paint was a bit pricey but it was well worth it. It didn’t have any smell and we didn’t have to open any windows.

Well as you can see there’s still one wall left to paint and quite a few boxes but it’s really starting to feel like home.
