The very amenable and lovely new tenant at Pjt.Cathedral said yes to a photo shoot for the Didsbury Magazine( http://www.didsburymagazine.com/ ) for the June edition I think.
So as not to feature my ugly mug (again) Salim wanted to run the feature from the point of view of the tenant, an interesting angle. There is so much rental property available at the moment, you have to make yours stand out, and a stickered wall is certainly one way :-)
Zoe agreed, and off we went on Saturday afternoon. M just rolled his eyes as it meant he would be roped into do all the heavy stuff, be bossed about and generally not be at the gym / pub / anywhere else. The velvet chesterfield isn't here yet from CoachHouse, so we had to work round it as I had to Photoshop out the bare light bulb in the bedroom where the chandelier will be in about 3 weeks!
Luckily Zoe has impeccable taste (think Laura Mercier, pink tulips and a Sex and The City shoe cupboard to die for) so I didn't really have to do any major dressing. We did discuss how she had not previously had a landlord rummaging through her toiletries however.....
