As many of you will know, Matt & I are moving to London this summer and it’s all happening now and starting to feel real! It’s been 9-10 months since we started this whole process with Matt’s new job (more on that later this week on the vlog channel) and at times it felt like it was never going to happen. The London property/rental market is a little bit insane, and being up North and trying to arrange viewings or even get a landlord to answer the phone or reply to us felt like an impossible feat. Thankfully, last week we found our new home and we will be moving properly on the 18th, but going back and forth until then getting everything ready.
We opted for a cosy one bedroom flat in South West London in the end. Although we ideally wanted two bedrooms (agh £££), we loved this flat and the area, and we hit it off with the landlord. Everything felt right and fell into place and when it feels right, it feels right. You can see a little tour of our place in the video below, it was a bit rushed as the landlord had to go but it gives you a little idea. Looking forward to decorating and making it our home, so expect some home decor posts, I need to get my thinking cap on when it comes to storage and maximising small spaces. Ikea is our friend!
