A Tour Of My Apartment.

home9 home8 home7 home6

Today is finally the day I reveal my apartment tour video… a project that has taken me hours upon hours to plan, film and edit! I’m so excited (and quite nervous) to finally show you our home in full!

Before this, I had little to no interest in interiors – it just seemed like an impossible journey when we lived in rented flats. Why paint the walls if the sofas are ugly?
Growing up, we always lived in crappy rented flats and my mum would never let us put anything on the walls. We were also short on money a lot of the time, so our bedrooms resembled blank, magnolia shells! I remember many times complaining to my mum over the years, and she would always say the same thing – “when you’re older and have your own place, you can do what you want with it”. I think I took that a bit too literally!

We bought this place over two years ago, and it was a bit of a shell. I remember doing a moving in vlog and more than a few people said it was awful and not to move in!
In that time, we have painted nearly every bit of wood on show, sanded floors, painted floors, ripped out a bathroom, spent weeks planning a new kitchen.
Chose tiles, picked furniture, painted doors, flooded the neighbours (twice!), hung curtains, learnt how to DIY, built furniture, sold furniture, spent ยฃยฃยฃ on tools.

I still don’t think this place is finished, but that’s the joys of your first home I guess! I said after the bathroom and kitchen were done, I would film a home tour so I’ve had over half a year to deliver.

You can see the video over on my channel, but I also took some photos so you can browse, save or Pin ’em. I always like to snap a few pictures for those who don’t love watching videos.


It’s been a long two years of planning, designing and having builders trudging through, but the majority of it is done! It’s such a personal, homely space and I love what we’ve done with it.

A shout-out to Jordan for okay-ing all my crazy ideas, for encouraging me to change out my desk for the seventh time, and saying “sounds good!” when I told him I was painting the bathroom pink – you got out of that one, at least!

What do you think of our little home?

  • You really seem to be consistent with your style everywhere, love the way the place looks and the vibe it gives off.

  • I love your home Kate – your style is so gorgeous! Loved the video too, everything is laid out beautifully! Such a great video for inspiration ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Omg Katie, this is to die for! I moved in December but my place is nothing compared to yours. I think my biggest problem is messy everything and too much stuff going on. I need to Pin your ideas.
    You are adorable as always and it’s a pleasure reading your blog.


  • This is WONDERFUL! Your house is a beauty, so organized with lovely pieces. I love the make up, the clothes, everything! It’s so inspiring! You have a great style! Thank you for sharing your place.

  • Totally in love with them & your style ^-^


  • Nadia Sabrina

    Everything is so dreamy! Love your taste a lot!

    Love from Indonesia,

  • It looks absolutely amazing! X

  • i swear to god, you apartment is just everything i want in life. you have such a unique style. i’m just in love.


  • Showing this to my boyfriend immediately for our own place!


    • Jukesgrrl

      I guarantee your boyfriend’s going to say, “Where does my stuff go?” I don’t see a single pair of shoes, pants, or even a bar of soap or a coffee mug that looks like it belongs to someone other than the narrator of this video. I have to assume Kate’s significant other lives elsewhere. So the talk about “we” and “our” is rather baffling.

  • Gina

    WOW!!! So much pretty details in your home..Love your style <3

  • HEAVENLY. teach me your ways!


  • The Wanderlette

    Beautiful! Where did the cabinet with multiple drawers come from? I love the rose gold accents. Very inspiring.

  • Gorgeous apartment! <3 Your taste is amazing and there is something quite Victorian about the space (high ceilings and the beautiful patterns around them).

  • Natali

    Oh wow!! You have such a beautiful and “airy” apartment! Lovely! Thanks for this big interior inspo!


  • Pia Hocevar Mucic

  • Amy Eade

    Your home is absolutely beautiful and the definition of goals! We’re currently doing our first home up, but it won’t look anything as wonderful as this – we’ve got too much clutter!
    Amy xx

  • Laura Todhunter

    What an absolutely beautiful home you’ve both made for yourself! I remember watching you’re moving in video and it’s unregognisable from that now. After flooding I’m moving back into my flat in a few months and I’m taking so much inspiration for yours! You’re most welcome to nip down to Carlisle and just design it for me if you’re bored, haha. Well done Kate!

  • Your home is gorgeous Kate – I am blown away by the colours, your eye for detail, the touches of metallics, the mixing of textures, and all that greenery… your apartment is deffo a big inspiration of mine. Well done on the hard work you’ve put into this place!

    Oh my gosh, I love your style!! I gasped at your Jo Malone collection! And those rose gold hangers!!


  • Yeah it’s offical, I’m in love with your decor.


  • Stephanie Hartley

    I’ve basically spent the entire time reading through this post trying not to Pin everything (I managed to whittle it down to one and your desk totally bagged that spot). Your interior is basically what dreams are made of and I really hope when I eventually get my own place that I can make it as gorgeous as yours!

    Steph – http://www.nourishmeblog.co.uk

  • Oh my gosh, I’m drooling over this! Interiors are my weak spot, my heart melts at beautiful, minimal interior designs and your apartment looks stunning. It’s crazy to think that people thought it was so bad that they didn’t think you should move in and now it looks like a dream. Amazing job! xx

  • heyitskate

    The excitement of being able to design my own home exactly the way I want it, makes the idea of moving out seem a lot less stressful! Kate your house is looking amaaaazing – as always! I’m seriously resisting the urge to pin every single one of these photos… ๐Ÿ˜›

    Your bathroom set up is THE CUTEST THING EVER.

  • Your home is absolutely breathtaking! I love all the little details that go into every room, corner, and space. It’s been such a great time following along with every video and post on each space, but to see it all fluidly put together was even more beautiful. Just proves you don’t need a large space to feel open and spacious, and you’ve really made your house into a home. Can’t wait to see how you mix things up with your space!

  • The fact that you said people told you not to purchase the place at first – it makes me wonder how bad could the place have been? Looking at all these pretty photos, it’s hard for me to imagine how it looks like originally because my God, your place is AH-MAYYY-ZING. What a terrific job you must have done then! The comment below is right: APARTMENT GOALS, for sure!

  • This is so my style! I love absolutely everything. Especially all the rose gold/copper touches. I really like those hangers… I realise thats quite a boring thing to pick out of everything but still!

    Your home is absolutely gorgeous! You have great style and I am a little jealous! I don’t think I am very good at interiors at all, I keep putting everything off, like getting the settling cracks fixed and putting up mirrors and pictures. This has given me lots of inspiration so thank you xoxo Sarah from iheartcosmetics

    you place looks like a studio to shoot for magazines!! Congrats on all the work you’ve put into it it looks lovely and fresh and relaxing and welcoming! I need to think about my place now. I have a kitchen I really love because we had it done 3 years ago but the rest, it needs some thought. Got a lot of ideas from you – particularly all the clever storage. Also, would love your recommendations for plants that do well in dark areas of the house. thanks!

  • I love your green dressing table *drool face*. I’m actually looking for some bedroom furniture in that colour. Any tips on where I can get some peeps?
