After what feels like the longest wait ever, we get the keys to our new home on Friday. To put this into perspective, we moved out of our old place on 13 May.
The Edinburgh property market is buoyant and we were lucky that we could sell our place and move on relatively quickly. But, what we weren’t quite prepared for was the time it would take us to find a new home. Yes, we offered on places and no, we didn’t get them, outbid a whole three times before an offer on property number four was accepted. Did I mention it’s been a long process?
As frustrating as the past few months have been, it has given me plenty of time to plan wall colours, flooring ideas and furniture pieces. I’ve been pinning furiously, making sure that I don’t forget any of the pieces I’ve set my heart on for our new home. And many of those pieces come from the wonderful Loaf.
I fell in love with Loaf around a year ago, when one of their catalogues popped through my letterbox. Since then, I’ve been obsessed with their comfy sofas, their stylish interiors and the overall amazingness of their range.
If money was no object, I’d deck our new house out from top to toe with pieces from Loaf. But since I live in the real world, sacrifices have to be made and I have to cherry pick my favourites, which was no easy task. But I got there in the end, settling for a coffee table, side table and rug to go in our new living room.
The Poste coffee table is just beautiful. I love the industrial feel to the base and the handcrafted wooden top. I don’t go in for highly polished items – I like wood to resemble it’s original state as far as possible – so the Poste coffee table fits the bill entirely.
To compliment the Poste, I’ve gone for the Postino side table. I can already see my glass of Prosecco looking even more drinkable on top of it.
And then, there’s the Bobble rug. I plan to sand all of our floors so rugs are essential. As you know, I love texture and the Bobble rug has it in spades.
