Two years ago, we moved into our gorgeous warehouse home in East London. The flat is set within a listed warehouse and we fell in love at first sight with its exposed brick walls, steel columns, galvanised piping and hardwood flooring. It’s a small flat but we were excited to have such a beautiful canvas to start decorating and making our own! As this riverside wharf has such a rich heritage we were keen to decorate our flat in a way that was in keeping but at the same time contemporary and stylish – we didn’t want it to end up looking like a themed pub! Scouring websites, blogs, magazines, books and shops for inspiration it became clear that “industrial chic” is hugely popular, but there didn’t seem to be a single place where we could find a carefully curated selection of the best furniture and accessories for a warehouse home. And, in a nutshell, that’s how we were inspired to create mywarehousehome.com – to share special finds, news and inspiration with others living in warehouse / loft apartments or looking to inject a bit of industrial chic into their homes.

Mr MWH largely provides support through endless cups of tea during late-night blogging sessions and can always be relied upon as voice of reason when Mrs MWH has her eye on a far-too-pricey item of furniture. Our joint passion, the inspiration for our blog, is our warehouse home!
