Work in Progress December

Happy New Year all! I hope you had a wonderfully relaxing time off, enjoying good food and good times with the people you love. I certainly did. I completely checked out for a couple of weeks and it was great.

Now that I'm back in reality, it's time to set this year off with a little catch up. The end of last year was a mad dash to finish off the bulk of the work on the flat before I hit my first anniversary of home ownership and a wee housewarming/Christmas party I threw.

So the big things like the kitchen and painting the hall and moving furniture in are done. hey I even got some Christmas decorations up. The tree is IKEAs Vinter fabric, hemmed and hung on a 20mm dowel and some hooks, although the hat draped on the bookcase (Bruno Rainaldi's Sapiens) is more about running out of places to put things than a style choice of any kind!

I still have a 50-odd strong list of jobs to tackle this year, so don't you worry there's plenty more to see yet. Not to mention to tell you all the things that I did to get it where it currently stands.

The dining area: table by Ercol, green Polo chair by Robin Day and vintage knock off of Eero Saarinen Tulip chair.

Speaking of which, the fact that the flat is looking sort of complete has made me think about where this blog goes next . . . but that's probably a much meatier topic that I will get into at a later date. Safe to say, I'm not going anywhere (physically or digitally) for a while yet.

Right now I'm just enjoying having too many choices for where to sit of an evening.
