I’m moving house in the next week or so. From a tiny one bed on the outskirts of the city centre, in an area where nothing happens and the only shop is at the petrol station, to bang bang bang in the middle of town. The new flat is a large one bed above a hairdressers and next to both a building site (eek - but the rent is cheap) and a fairly quiet bar.
I’m pretty excited about the new place, right in the hustle and bustle and two minutes walk away from my favourite book shop, Rare and Racy. http://www.rareandracy.co.uk/
There are a few potential problems though, one being the noise on Friday and Saturday nights - my street is THE street where everyone goes out drinking, gets drunk, pukes on the pavement whilst chomping on a kebab etc..but I stayed there a week or so ago on a saturday night and although it was a little noisy, it wasn’t annoyingly so.
I’m very excited about decorating the new place too. Obviously we can’t paint, but I think there is so much we can do to make the place homely. I’m thinking cool prints off Etsy, all my vintage nicknack clutter and a little music nook in the hallway for my rockstar (ha) boyfriend. Anyway I will post some inspiration pictures later and maybe some photos of the new flat with ideas of what to do with it.
