Maisonette Flat

In June 2013 I moved with my housemates from this house to our current maisonette flat.  You can read my posts on The Big Move here. Now, we’re in and settled. Here, you can find all the info on our flat, including floor plans, empty photos and some of our decor to! For more photos of my flat, visit the North Leads To Home Facebook Page.

Progress on the bathroom has been slow but sure. Since these photos were taken, a few DIY projects have happened to brighten up the room.

Our kitchen is amazing. It’s huge and open plan, which great after two years of having a galley kitchen. There’s room for it to be a proper kitchen-dining room with a table to have evening meals on, rather than eating off a coffee table sat on the sofa like in the last house! There’s still bits and pieces to do, like getting a new table cloth, but this is one room which has come together nicely.

Through the kitchen are a pair of double doors leading to the living room. The living room is, well, incredibly lived in! I love it as a cosy space, wIt’s also got a huge under-the-stairs area used for storage. Slowly, the living room changed from the moving day photo above and reached a ‘decorated’ state. Soon I can share it with you!

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, and mine is the ‘loft room’. I chose this room as it gives space for the bed to be separate from the rest of the room. I also have a thing for sloping ceilings in bedrooms, it makes them feel cosy and quirky! The only downside, as I mentioned here, is the lack of natural light in the room thanks to a bit architectural fail during the placement of my loft window. Since the top two empty photographs were taken my room is finally decorated and ready to be shown off soon, watch this space!

This bedroom is only slightly bigger than mine, but the layout makes it seem huge! This is Ali (and Gary’s) room. They have a big window with loads of natural light. Think owls, cupcakes and skulls… an eclectic but winning combination!
