From house to home..

Slowly but surely settling in new home. Everyone thought I was crazy to buy a flat with a narrow staircase like this, but it had a charm that I couldn't leave behind. So most of our things are now being awkwardly lifted in through the fenced garden, a price I am willing to pay. When the flat was being redone, I spent the months leaving notes around and repeating to the builders not to do anything to the staircase. So although this flat has gotten a makeover to the point that it’s unrecognizable, the distressed staircase and huge matching iron radiators have not been touched.

So 5 inch and up will see quite a few home and interior posts in the near future!

I’m wearing ACNE top, ANTON HEUNIS necklace, ZARA pants and PRADA shoes, completed with my new GUSTAV KLIMT for ARTIS ORBIS mug

Oh Sandra, I SO HOPE I can one day be invited to yours, hope that didn't sound like I was inviting myself ;P Keeping the staircase as it is is all about maintaining and protecting its charm!! I LOVE these spiral staircases!! They're going extinct! How do you find such charming and amazing places to live?! I need to hire you to help me find a new flat like this, it's to die for really. I'd be looking forward to more interior shots of your gorge new home.
