What do you like most about your home?
Well, probably what I like most about my home is that we have a really great river view, because we live quite high up,on the 20th floor, and our flat is right next to the river. So I feel really lucky to have such a nice view, and I never get tired of it.
Is there anything you would like to change about your home?
Thinking about it, I’d say there probably is, yeah, for example one thing I would quite like to do is knock down the wall between my kitchen and the living room, because at the moment, there’s not much space in the kitchen, so if we got rid of the wall, it would make everything much more spacious, I think.
(Similar to above) What do you think could be improved about your home?
Well, I kind of like my home the way it is, but I guess if I had to change anything, then one thing I might do would be toget rid of the wall between my living room and kitchen, as it would then make things a lot more spacious.
What's your favourite room?
I would say my favourite room is probably my living room, firstly because that’s where the TV is, and secondly because it’s got big floor-to-ceiling windows which overlook the river, so we have a really cool view. Oh and one more thing to mention would be that it’s by far the most spacious room in the flat, because all the other rooms are about half the size, if not less.
How is that room decorated?
Well, regarding the walls, we’ve got a few family pictures hanging up, which gives the room a nice personal feel. And as for the flooring, we basically just decided to use ceramic tiles, because they’re very practical in terms of keeping clean, but we’ve also put a small carpet down by the sofa to make that area a little bit more cozy. So all in all I’d say it’s a really nice room for chilling out in.
What furniture is in that room?
Well, on one side there’s a big bookshelf, which basically stretches across the entire wall, coz we’ve got a lot of books! Then against another wall, we’ve got a nice big sofa, which probably seats about 8 or 9 people, so it’s great for when we have friends over.
In the future, what sort of home (flat, house etc.) would you like to live in?
Well, thinking about it, I’d say I would like to live in a villa overlooking the sea, the main reason being that, with a villa, I would get my own garden, which wouldn’t be the case if I lived in a flat, and I think having a nice view of the sea would be great for helping me relax whenever I needed to.
Do you like the area where you live?
Yeah, on the whole I'd say it's a pretty nice place, you know, there are quite a few good restaurants and shops, and most of the buildings are pretty new. So it's quite an up-and-coming area, and I’m really happy to be living there.
