Hello and welcome to the House at The Junction!
My name is Emma and I am an interior designer, living and working in London. In May 2013 my husband; Ed and I bought a house in South East London, which we now share with our two cats; Percy and Pip.
Having lived in North London since I graduated, moving south of the river was a big step! But we held our breath as we stayed on the train past Blackfriars and after various false starts with a couple of other properties, we finally got the keys to our house – The house at the Junction… Or as it was then; a warren of rooms with no front door!
We had lofty ambitions for the house (including adding a front door), but our budget was pretty tight compared to the amount of work needed so we had to do a lot of the work ourselves and I started this blog as a way to chart our progress and decisions. Despite my day-to-day job this is not intended be a masterclass, just a reflection of our style and the ups and downs of renovating what will hopefully be our home for a very long time.
Now the house is ‘finished’ I also hope to add a few posts on the things we enjoy and how we like to spend our time. A hint of which can be seen on my Instagram page.
Thanks for reading!
