After three weeks of living here I feel that my new flat is now in a state where I can show it off. We've had a couple of issues - like, who leaves towels and a broken microwave behind? - and despite some parts not being finished (ahem, the kitchen) we are pretty much there. Although these pictures are not quite Coveteur-ed, the flat is at its very tidiest; I can assure you, you wouldn't want to see it in its messy state!

I'm so happy to finally have a dressing room-cum-office space. Ask Chris and he'll say it's the guest bedroom, but we have guests over maybe once a month and I get dressed every day (sometimes twice, or more) so to me it's a no-brainer.

During those dark, dark weeks without the internet we had to find something to occupy ourselves, so one evening a duvet set got the tie dye treatment. The rest of the soft furnishings are quivering with nerves as we speak. I know not to blame late-night cheese for trippy dreams from now on..

The main thing that drew us to this flat was the amount of light. There's a huge window in the living area and the daylight fills the entire room - coming from a flat where you have to put the kitchen light on in the day, it's a real novelty. Chris has claimed the chair, but I love sitting on the couch in the morning with coffee and granola.

What do you think? I'm still looking for some extra bits - a window box for herbs, sari offcuts for curtain trim, a big wooden Buddha, and a huge print of George Harrison circa Hari Krishna - so if you have any decorating ideas or secret interiors boutiques I'd love to hear about them.

  11. Oh your flat looks like heaven! Sitting here dead jealous because you have your own swanky Manchester flat and thinking how cool and quirky it all is. Love your shoe and clothes collection. And I envy how neat your workspace is. Mine is an absolute pit. Do really like the way you have decorated it though. More patchwork and antique furniture!
