PROJECT #No42

My fiancé and I moved in to No.42 in July 2016. The house is a 1930s 3 bed semi detached that hadn't been touched since the 60s. Every wall and ceiling had wallpaper on it. There was no central heating, and the carpets were nothing short of 'shag pile psychedelic'. 

Our mission is to make this house a simple, modern farmhouse for each other. We're tired of waiting for the dream of "retiring to the country" to come along, so we're creating our own authentic, simple "farmhouse inspired" home here in the city of my birth – Brighton.
