London Nastalgia: Wimbledon

After a year plus in Hampstead we moved to our third and final home in London, Wimbledon.

Wimbledon holds a special place in my heart; we stayed there the longest, our daughter was born there and for me, it was the closest I have come to living my Simple Life.

A quick tour of our house:

Much like our first home in Belsize Park, our home in Wimbledon was small and in a great location. The big difference was the addition of our daughter and you know how much stuff small children bring with them! We really had prioritize what was important in terms of design, accessories, etc. Everything had to have meaning and tell it's own story. We had to purge a lot of extra stuff, which was hard, but in time proved to be a great relief.

The moral of this house was again, simplicity, and to accessorize with meaning.
