One of the things I'm most excited about when it comes to moving to Edinburgh, is the sheer choice of accommodation that we will be able to afford. In London, it took us months to find our current flat - which whilst cute and cosy, is also essentially one normal sized house, separated into four but still costing as much. We have two rooms and a tiny shower room and we consider it a bargain at £1200 a month - bills not included. I KNOW - LONDON IS RIDICULOUS.
So when we started having a little practice flat hunt the other week, I was surprised and deliriously happy at the fact that you could get a decent sized one bed flat fairly centrally in Edinburgh for about half that amount. Think of all the spare money we'll have to spend on decor! Once I get a new job, obviously (in case Sean and my mum are reading this.)
I've been satisfying my interior design dreaming by building up lists of homeware items that I simply must have - here's my current pick.
Because pineapples, am I right? 'Nuff said as far as I'm concerned. I'm envisaging this cushion delicately plonked on a little armchair in the living room or in the corner of our future bedroom. That's right, non essential seating areas - I'm officially going up in the world.
I love me some tea, and I also love my teapot which Sean bought me from Emma Bridgewater two birthdays ago - which will definitely be seeing a lot of use in our future Edinburgh flat. However, it is a little large to make tea just for me - so I think this cute little teapot/cup set is a necessity.
I am OBSESSED with copper at the moment, I'm desperate to have a kitchen with enough space that I can buy loads of copper pans and have them displayed artfully on the stove even when it isn't on. Until then I will content myself with this SUPER cool vase from George, which is a bargain at under a tenner.
