Home, London, Stay

House hunting horrors – the final chapter

It was fun while it lasted, but the house hunting horror series must come to an end. We have found a new home, hurray!

The place is in need of some TLC – everything seems to be in good nick but slightly on the dated side. New bathrooms, new kitchen, a few more sockets, new wardrobes, new radiators, a little knocking-down here and putting-up there… I am thinking New York townhouse chic. I am thinking contemporary with a classic twist. I am thinking Scandinavian cool and Swedish old school panache.

Despite not exactly knowing where to carve out the time to manage a building project (there’s a manuscript lying around, desperately waiting to be re-edited and an erratic toddler very impatiently not waiting to be entertained), I am extremely excited.

Fingers crossed now for the buying process to be quick. Pass me the helmet, shoulder the sledge hammer and let the building works begin!


  1. How exciting and congratulations! I look forward to reading all about the Met Family renovations.

    It sounds amazing! Is it in London?

  3. As a veteran home remodeller, I say – hold on to your hard hats. This could get interesting! Congrats!

  4. Brilliant news. Hope it all goes smoothly. I still think you should continue looking round people’s houses though. I’ll miss your house-hunting horrors posts!!

  6. Congratulations on the new house! I can relate on the “good bones” of a house, but needs updating. That’s where we are now. But, there’s plenty of time for that. Good luck with the move and be sure to share photos of your new abode. 🙂

  7. Exciting times….living in the midst of building works can be an effort (from personal experience) but the end result will be so worth it.

  8. Congrats on finding a house, that is super exciting! And sometimes fixing up and making it your own is the best part…it makes it feel like yours 🙂

  9. Congratulations! I shall cross my fingers and press my thumbs that it all goes smoothly and quickly and that you can get on with your remodeling! I hope you’ll be showing us before and after photos!
