Victorian Factory Apartment Conversion with A Touch Of Shabby Chic

When we hear the word "apartment" we usually envisage a small cramped space with not much character unless of course you are lucky enough to own a penthouse suite in a Georgian manor.  Today however, I am sharing some inspiration via an unusual attic conversion. Previously a Victorian factory situated in London the conversion has created a spacious apartment in what was originally the buildings attic, character is still in abundance and there is plenty of space including a large studio area.

For me it's important in these old conversions that they retain as much original character and charm during their modernisation. I'm pleased to see they have retained the lovely Victorian fireplace in this building, a home is not a home without a fireplace of some description, even my little cottage has a focal fire although mine has been modernised to give a lovely gas flame effect without the labour of collecting and burning logs.  I especially love the wrought iron doors to the bedroom (as seen below), I have an idea of installing something like this at the front of my porch so that I can keep my front door open in the summer but still have security.

The apartment is available for photo/film shoots, if you are interested or wish to see further images of the apartment, please see the link to jj Locations at the foot of this post. If you wish to see other properties I have featured on Lee Caroline Art from jj Locations please use "jj locations" in the search box at the top right hand side of my page.

I think I might have to go
on a "healthy kick" to get over the heavy 
Holiday food feeling as I'm so lethargic after eating turkey, ham, truffles, cake, pudding, mince pies and cheese and biscuits!
As I read this back it makes me aware of   those people throughout the world who have little or no food...
I think I will hold this thought and cut back on my eating and make it 
my New Years Resolution to sponsor another child.
