  1. Very sleek! I really love all the colour schemes you’ve used and the furniture choice is great – but you can’t really go wrong with IKEA ;)

    Hopefully me and my Fiancée will have a house as nice as that when we’re your age!

    Looking very good, I am a big fan of neutral colours!

    Although I’m not sure I could live with another glass desk, the wires around yours doesn’t look to bad.

    I’ve been watching your video during all the 5 weeks, laughing with you. I’ve to say that now the house is wonderful!

    I appreciate very much that you two did it all by yourself, making decisions, painting and dirtying your hands.

    So now… enjoy it!
    Ciao from Italy :)

    Looks great Chris and it has been fun watching you transform the place. I can’t wait until my wife and I get in our first home so we can spice it up too.

    Love what you guys have done with the place. Looks very modern and comfortable at the same time. Which isn’t always that easy to pull off. And I really like the black wall in the bedroom, gives it a nice contrast.

    Congrats on all your hard work and getting everything put together nicely. Now it’s time to sit down, relax, and have a refreshing beverage.

    Get the keys to my house this friday so it’s been great seeing how a fellow web designer has decorated.

    Looks lovely Chris, congrats to both of you!

    Wow, you’ve done a really excellent job there, Chris! Well done.

    The lounge and bedroom look outstanding. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the place a lot.

  8. @Callum, Yeah definitely can’t go wrong with Ikea haha. Might be chipboard underneath but it’s the price that counts!

    @Joel The glass desk isn’t too bad at all, not many prints on it. I’ve had it a good few years now. I was considering swapping it, but while the office was being decorated I worked from the dining table, and the sharp corners were terrible. The glass has nice beveled edges.

    @Valentina Thanks for watching! It’s great to hear when people have taken an interest, especially from across the world.

    @Branden It’s good fun, even better when you record it all and watch it back.

    @Kyle Thanks! Definitely ready to sit back and relax, looking forward to watching a movie or two now the lounge is complete.

    @Chris Congrats on the house! Are you considering a video diary at all? I’d love to check out any pics or vids you post up.

    @Dan Cheers! Yeah we’re loving it. Feels like we’ve always lived here, very strange when we realise it’s only 5 weeks.

  9. @Chris, Haha yeah that sucks a little, but it all looks real nice! Can’t always get the solid oak versions ;) I know a chest of drawers in my house cost over a £1k, thank goodness for Ikea :)

    Your house looks excellent! Great work.

    My favorite part is the kitchen. You have limited space, but seemed to have opened it up well. It is warm, inviting and has plenty of counter space to prepare your dinners.

    Interesting layout, love all the natural light, especially that room that leads to the garden. Enjoy your new home!

  12. Tom says:

    Wow, that is a really nice house man. I love the overall design and I think you will be very happy there.

    Now all you need to work on is keeping it as clean and as tidy as it is now! Good luck with that!

    RICH! Fantastic makeover

  14. Tom Flowers says:

    Awesome crib! I love your style. :)

    You guys did an amazing job. From the paint to the layout to the furniture. Oh, I wish there was an Ikea near my house. I’d love to just go into one and look at all the pretty things. I have this weak spot for cool looking furniture.

    I’m so glad that you are going to keep these videos going. As long as they keep coming, “not as often” is fine with me. :D

  16. Lee Gustin says:

    Great job Chris (and Laura). The house looks great. I hope you guys have a great time there, and it helps inspire you to create some more excellent designs!

  17. McBonio says:

    looking cool mate, you have done a great job!

    you should start up a DIY blog next ;)

  18. Ryan says:

    Fantastic work here Chris. Been following this series silently but felt I needed to cherp up with the final product. The house is in the style myself and the girlfriend love so massive props to you and Laura with that one.

    How does the ensuite bathroom work? Is it up the staircase in the master bedroom? Looks really nice.

    I think Ikea is the way forward for Furniture. I have the exact same bed as yours :)

    I have a similar section to this within my blog which will be worked on soon. I look forward to further content. Great work again and enjoy many times together there.

  19. Wow! Thank you! I continuously wanted to write on my site something like that. Can I take a portion of your post to my blog?
