Ellie Goulding has had a week of milestones this week, not only did she pick up the keys to her new place, but the singer also revealed she will be taking some time out from performing.

Back from being on the road, Ellie proved she was keen to stay in one place for a little while as she moved into her new London pad yesterday (3 September).

Showing off her new home on Instagram, the songstress uploading a snap inside her place on move-in day.

Equipped with a celebratory bottle of champers and a cute rose bouquet to brighten the place up, Ellie posed for the camera to give us all a cheeky glimpse at her digs.

Ellie stood inside one of the rooms of her new home, featuring grey walls, wooden floors and a stylish log-filled fireplace. Captioning her photo, she wrote: "Got the keys to my new place of living today."

Next on the agenda... furniture shopping, of course!

Ellie's move to the capital comes after she announced she would be taking a break from the stage, earlier this week.

On Monday (1 September) the 'Beating Heart' singer shared a poignant picture of herself on stage, along with the caption: "Last festival of the summer and last show for a long time. Thank you to my band, my crew, my team, my family. Thank you to my fans for always being there for me and making the past five years incredible x."

Itching for some time out, Ellie told Billboard magazine back in March she was being "pulled home", insisting if she didn't take a break soon, she would feel like she was "forever on the road".

Now settled in London it seems Ellie will be enjoying having more time on her hands and of course seeing her boyfriend, McFly star Dougie Poynter.

Taking to the red carpet at the GQ Awards on Tuesday night (2 September), both Ellie and Dougie looked pretty smitten with each other as they made their way into the showbiz bash.

The pair officially confirmed they were an item back in May this year.
