London architect William Smalley shares his musings on how he transformed his rental flat into a sanctuary of visual calm; told in his own (distinctive) voice:
"I found this house, in its unexpectedly neighborly neighborhood, by chance seven years ago. I was looking for a cheap, central flat at the same time my friend Ben Pentreath was looking for an office. The house was too big for either of us, but when we discovered we were pining for the same place, we signed a lease on it together. We now have the odd situation where every morning I go to my office across the road as Ben comes in from his flat around the corner."
