Step inside this playful London rental flat that’s filled with character

Relocating from Edinburgh to London is no simple feat, but finding a flat that met the same standards as their Scottish apartment was an interesting challenge for this couple. ‘When we lived in Edinburgh, we were lucky enough to have a top-floor flat, which was always flooded with light,’ they say. ‘We moved to London two years ago, and wanted to find a home with similar amounts of natural light.’

The couple initially moved to Brockley and, after a year in the Capital city, liked the area enough to want to stay there. ‘We wanted to find a home that we could stamp some personality on, despite renting.’ The two-bedroom flat that they found in a converted Victorian house ticked all the boxes; ‘When we viewed our flat and saw the skylight in the landing, we knew that we had found exactly what we were looking for.’
