Our Versailles/French style home

Azeem Khan

Cheltenham 

We recently moved to our first home in December 2017 and started with a blank canvas including our bedroom. We had an existing divan style waterbed without a headboard and wanted to make our bedroom stand out. Despite our differing opinions, as i wanted sheek and glamourous whilst my partner wanted comfortable and usable, we came to an agreement and i was able to merge the two. Whilst our home still requires further work e.g. wallpaper, art, family pictures, we feel that we have made it very attractive but usable at the same time. Archie (our dalmatian) settled in very quickly and takes care of our home too. Whilst it was difficult we managed to make our home beautiful by working together and making compromises as a couple. Approximately 9 months in and this is what we have achieved so far. Apart from the electrics, this was all our work as a couple. We are both proud of what we have achieved and to have our own home too under the age of 30 is a privilege. We are hoping that our hardwork and commitment is transparent and that our first home brings us many happy memories.
