Since at least 2013!
The room, rather than the art. Imagine having a hangover in there.
What about pink terrazzo and grey tiles? Not feeling the textureless pink with the brass.
2 lovely gays. you'll love their pad
It's too late to turn back now, its all locked in.
@Fox im applying my work learnings to life - ask other users what they want, making your own decisions is so early 2000's.
Shouldn't all this interiors chat really be in the architecture an interiors thread ? or even a new "bathrooms/kitchens/extensions etc" thread - i mean IDGAF and its a bit late in the day but mortgages / the tribulations of buying and selling is a thread in its own right - right ?
I'm sure it will be fine :)
Good point, but also this is part of owning your own house?
A new thread sounds like a good idea tbh, a reference point for all others asking how much x costs and how long y takes to build.
we need a bean bags thread imo
why are you booing
I think I want a bean bag.
Is that what LG stands for?! I really like some of their stuff, some of it feels way too form over function.
yup - https://www.made.com/inspiration/home-tour-2-lovely-gays-how-to-put-personality-into-your-home
and agreed... also often just a bit too extra for me but then I am a boring bast. I did like their garden pavilion tho
Big day in my journey. Carpets being fitted.
That'll make a big difference to how the place feels for sure.
What else is on the list before moving?

I actually quite like most of that, but the stair carpet looks awful with that wallpaper.
It sounds like you've put a lot more thought into it than I have to be fair. I think part of my view on this stuff is the nimbyism I see round here - we have a few of the same old faces who object to every new bit of development, every company trying something new, every bit of improvement in the area, and I'm so tired of it. Our local group tried getting the Aldi blocked on the grounds that it might affect a few trees out front. And they used our residents group name to do it, despite being told not to!
I think in my brain I've associated those people who'll object to ANYTHING even if it's of benefit to the area with those people who have genuine and reasonable concerns. I'm sure there are more of the latter but I mostly seem to engage with the former.
Finsih kitchen fitting, floor sanding in the front room, window architraves, window blinds, tiling kitchen, tiling hearth, paint front door, put on new door furniture.
AND A MASSIVE TIDY UP
You'll get that done by the end of the weekend, no sweat
Mate is looking for a flat in Hackney and has just sent this to the group chat. Hilarious but also depressing that someone is going to end up living in that. Initially thought you might be able to climb up the ladder and sleep in the ‘loft’ but it’s definitely too small for that. So once you’ve got the single bed into the 7ft wide room, the only place to sit down is the toilet. Which would be handy as you’d be able to cook your dinner while sitting on it. If there was a cooker.
but sourdough and flat white on door step ..
That seems like a before-the-pandemic listing. I mean, I don't know how much the supposed fact that 700,000 people may have left London will affect the market for buying, and I saw the other day that house prices had risen again because people were looking for larger flats to work from home there, but this looks much too small even for a pied-à-terre in London.
I feel exactly the same about the crystal palace group
