Dream apartment

Yes, this is near London, in a neighbourhood called Stepney Green.

And this used to be a Victorian school, a gym and an assembly hall.
Due to its many windows, the apartment seems to be full of light which changes through out the day.
Only one space, no walls and the vaulted ceilings high above.

Parquet floors, well worn furniture and ancient industrial ornaments,

in the afternoon light, give a timeless, cozy feeling.

There is a care free, relaxed atmosphere in the kitchen corner.
Blue and cream Victorian tiling on the walls is gorgeous.
A lovely detail is the collection of old portraits.
Recycled wood has been used for the cupboards, and industrial chairs
are in original condition.
Sweet, romantic table cloth gives a great contrast.
