The house: presentation.

The weather couldn't be better this weekend to take a few pictures last evening and present our new town in Kent. A pleasant city actually because it owns a magnificient cathedral... but it's still more the size of a town for me. With a high street full of independant bakers, delicatessen, arty shops, traditionnal pub around and yummy restaurants. What I really appreciate here are the different places where we can enjoy a walk: by the castle, down to the boats, through the park and of course along the streets to enjoy the gorgeous period houses...

Our new little nest is a Victorian terraced-house built at the end of the 19th century, with when we moved in 3 bedrooms, a kitchen, dinning room, living room, downstairs bathroom and a low maintenance garden - which means: no grass, all paved with concrete and gravel - wonderful!
Every room was covered with a mosaic of different carpets, colors and patterns. Every wall was covered with at least 3 layers of wallpaper but I think the best idea was the polystyrene tiles covering all the ceilings :) - thank you darling for your hard work to get rid of it, you're the best!
But we didn't mind all that work ahead because we could feel something good about this house, we could see the potential and we knew it would be the best chance to make it how we would like it.

So here is starting the story of our little renovation adventure... see you tomorrow :)
