One year (and a few months) after the purchase of our old peoples bungalow and our retreat by the sea is nearly finished.
We haven’t done anything wildly ambitious, mainly due to lack of funds and the fact that it is house to be enjoyed, not a show home, but we have stuck to our original plan of keeping it simple, with clean lines and minimal fuss and the smooth walls and lack of stuff is already making me re-think the way we live (cluttered some may say!) in London.
MAD has been a DIY genius, laying a wooden floor and a zen like fence in the back garden, as well as numerous other tricky jobs, that despite my feminist principles, I couldn’t have hoped to ever tackle. I am strictly soft furnishing and the garden and have plans to create an easy to mange coastal inspired inspired garden (any tips gratefully received).
