The kitchen: before

The kitchen is currently the room that looks most like a building site (everywhere else looks like cardboard boxes have been breeding). With the new units due to be installed in a couple of weeks and my long bank holiday weekend spent tearing it apart I thought I’d show you what it looked like before I started smashing things!

The bedroom: before

I’m not very good at this blogging lark. I realised I’ve given you an ‘in progress’ post for the bedroom but not actually shown you what it was like to start with. Decidedly amateur move there jeopardising my hypothetical (as in entirely imaginary) book deal and prime time interior design TV show …

ANYWAY. This is what the bedroom looked like when I bought the penthouse.
