Peace and Serenit


M IKE and Michelle Chandler quite literally watched their apartment appear before their eyes. The couple bought the onebedroomed flat in the Saunders Building six years ago, before it was even constructed. "It was just a building site at the time we signed up," says Mike, 33, "and we were living in Fazakerley Street in the city at the time. We would go and see it taking shape, we couldn't wait to get in! Then, before it was finished off, we got the chance to put on hard hats and go and look round."

Picking up on those colours is an extra touch that Mike has added - painted vertical stripes on the corner walls on tones of red, brown and blue. There is also a large framed photo of their wedding - held at Sefton Park Palm House, in 2003 - and a table football set. Michelle says: "I was actually given it for a birthday present one year. To be honest we don't use it much but people assume we do and we're really good at it - they refuse to play with us when they come round, in case they get hustled!" The open-plan kitchen is painted pale blue, and comes with chrome appliances, including a Smeg fridge freezer. The bathroom is white and blue, with a huge panoramic photo view of the mountains in France where Mike spent several months snowboarding. …
