2: Lighting

Lights & Candle inspiration:

If you had one thing that would totally change the feeling of a room, what would you think it it?
You're right! The title does explains it...
There is nothing more satisfying that really well-lit room, decorated with fabulous ceiling-hung lights or ornate lamps.
Here is a little bit of my style right here.

Have a good day.

1: Decor

I am writing this post on our new railway sleeper table, with cast iron legs and bench - to die for!
We've been living in our new flat now for 3 months and have completely transformed it. 

I remember our first viewing of the flat. It's in a great location - close to the station - so already had people bidding on it when we went to view it. It had purple carpets, yellow-ey laminate and the original 1980's kitchen and bathroom (the latter is still there). It also had a red hallway which was an absolute b***h to repaint. I recommend 3 - 4 coats, if not more.

It isn't the stereotypical fashion-type apartment with sash windows, exposed wooden floors or heigh ceilings. It's a delightful 2nd floor apartment with it's own balcony and we love it. 
These are not my photos, but a glimpse at the style we love and are inspired by.

Have a good day.
