The Sunday R&R 098

Welcome trulovers!  It has been a turbulent week at Trulove Towers, not in a bad way but with the winds of change strongly blowing! You may have seen via Facebook, but on Monday we went and viewed a house that we completely fell in love with and made an offer there and then.  Fast forward 18 hours and our offer was accepted and surveys permitting, we have found a new home for Trulove HQ.

So what’s it like?  It is a mid-century house that a couple lived in for 30 years, it needs completely updating and has original floorboards throughout, although currently under carpet.  In fact it is so retro, that the fashions have come right around back to what is still in the house.  Here is a picture of the wall paper from the bedroom that is something right out of the 70s and I LOVE IT!

Apologies if you follow FWS on Pinterest as there might well be some more interior design and mid-century furniture gems popping up in your feed.

I have two new wonderful FWS Sponsors to introduce you to today, Sasha Weddings who you can also meet in detail in her blog post below.

The next sponsor is Susie Lawrence, who’s weddings have been a regular on French Wedding Style since the beginning and she specialises in weddings in the Languedoc area of France as well as Yorkshire.

But back to The Sunday R&R and on Monday we started the week off with a sumptuous and romantic winter wedding in Paris – see full real wedding here.
