About the house

Not much has changed around here since my last About the house, but since I keep snapping little shots to try out my new camera I thought I’d share.

About the house

Picked up this sweet little dresser from a new vintage shop in Stoke Newington. It was only £125 and fits in great. The bedroom is the last room to be ‘done’ since I’m looking out for the perfect vintage bedside table and we need some shelves building. But it’s slowly coming together now.

About the house

I got these gorgeous things from Spitalfields market. They’re original pencil drawings by lettering artists at the Linotype factory in Manchester. The drawings would form the basis for hot metal type letters to be cast and used to print books. Nice piece of history! Not sure where to hang them though – is above the bed too cheesy?
