New carpet for the unit!

Well it seems like the carpet business is doing well right now as I had trouble finding someone available to fit a carpet in my unit. At first, I thought that I may have to wait until the 11th March which really was no good to me as my moving in date is tomorrow 1st March.



However, I eventually found someone who had a slot available due to a cancellation. The carpet was fitted today and here it is....


Well, what do you think of it? Cheerful? Bright or downright garish?


Sorry, I couldn't resist imagining the look on your faces when you saw the first picture :-)
I went for something a lot more conservative and neutral, far more suitable. Not what I would have chosen for home but perfect for the unit.


Miss P and I turned up at the unit at 9am so that we could let the carpet fitter in.



We went back at 17.00 hours and this is what it looks like now. Far more cosy looking.
I can't wait to start bringing everything over. I am still in the process of deciding where everything will go.


Alan has kindly taken 3 days holiday starting as of Wednesday in order to help me move everything over, put up shelves, move furniture around etc...Busy week ahead but will keep you posted!

A bientôt!

Well you certainly caught me out with the first carpet! I think the more conservative one is probably for the best!

Ha! I was kinda looking forward to seeing how that was going to look. See the imagination behind it. LOL Guess the neutral would be easier to work with, huh?

Wow, I wonder how many people would of been honest about the first carpet if you really were having that one. Hee Hee

It would make a lovely loft room to live in, and I'm still loving those windows, the pillars and that painted stonework. Totally gorgeous in my book.

I am not a carpet person either but as the floor is concrete and the room echoey it needs one. I will had a vintage rug to it eventually. I too wonder how many people would have said they liked the first carpet! :-)
In fact this carpet is used in a Las Vegas casino to keep people awake so that they may stay all night long and spend, spend, spend! x
