Interior Design

Stripped Bare

Admittedly, the interior was ghastly, and I have been pretty convinced that it couldn’t look worse, but apparently it can.

Let me give you a tour:

The family bathroom. Note the upside-down bath tub. It’s THE new thing in interior design. Everybody can do a Spa, but this is something different entirely.

The kitchen – minimalism taken to the next level.

The living room. Bags of rubbish and the tour de fridge.

Little L’s room. Trying to keep the pink at bay is difficult, but I think we managed just fine here.

Built-in wardrobe. Not quite so Sex and the City, but almost.

Well. It can only get better, I guess.


  1. Oh wow, minimalist chic at its best. I presume you are already entertaining visitors in this splendor? How wonderful 🙂

  2. At least starting from scratch like this means it is sure to be gorgeous and just to your tastes when complete. Wishing you speedy building works!

  3. Straight from the, er, runways of Milan. Or maybe zoolander: you carry off the derelict chic thing superbly! Can’t wait to see what it’s like when it’s finished. X

  4. Am I allowed to laugh? Very funny post, but oh my goodness, I feel your pain! Can’t wait to see the ‘after’ photos x

  5. Do you at least have a functioning washing machine at least? We have had the builders in and they disconnected the washing machine and things are pretty Lord of the Flies around here let me tell you!

  6. Exciting! To see it bare bones and then you can let your creative juices fly! Shall hope the builders move quickly for you and your able to make it your home.

  7. Tres chic, tres derelicte. Very industrial 😉 I can’t wait to see progress! (I bet you can’t wait either!)

  8. Looking forward to seeing the finished product! You are right – it can only go up from here. How exciting being able to start from scratch. Have fun and good luck!

  9. Ha ha! this is just what my flat looks like (it’s not really honestly even though it is in the east!)

  10. Oh my heavens!! And you’re right, it can only get better 🙂
    I hope you share the photos along the way x

  11. What an amazing challenge. Reminds me of working on set looking at the before pictures when the team are building places up for filming. Mammoth task and admittedly there’s usually a huge art team but the results are incredible and so rewarding-you’ll feel the same in no time too!
