Location: Clerkenwell — London, England
I moved to London with a few suitcases of clothes and not one home item. I thought it would be fun to start over, as designing my own places have been fun projects and my style evolves quickly.
I was looking for charm and character and lots of light. I was flexible on the location, as long as it was fairly central London. I saw a lot of places, but nothing that had as much personality as I was hoping for, especially in a city full of incredible architecture. When my friend and I saw this flat, we knew immediately it was the one. While I was originally looking for something with a European feel, Georgian townhomes, etc., and this has a New York loft feel, it's an amazing apartment.
