Mancoolian Awards – Vote for me

So I am happy and honoured to say that I have been nominated for a Mancoolian Award, in association with Downtown Manchester and Journey 9.

When we walked in, it immediately felt very chilled and I fell in love with the loft-style red-brick walls, floorboards, exposed pipes and kitchen tiles. The interior is right-up-my-street and totally the New York-style loft-living that I wish was my reality.
