So you’ve seen the real life state of my kitchen, but I wanted to share my vision as well. I feel like we’re getting to the point where the bones are coming together, and we can think about the ‘finishing touches’. Yes, a tap is a finishing touch.
1. Marimekko Oiva teapot 2. Orla Kiely Linear Stem pot 3. B&Q Senio tap 4. Aloe Vera plant, Ikea. 5. Habitat ‘Flap’ Clock. 6. Valspar Kitchen and Bathroom paint in Bottlenose Dolphin, B&Q. 7. Franke Ascona sink, Screwfix. 8. White tile with dark grout, via House & Home.
All the appliances are integrated, including the microwave, which means there doesn’t need to be anything on the worktop if we don’t want there to be. Our kettle is a stovetop rather than electric, and I’m pretty sure the stovetop espresso maker will live on the hob, too. I’ve got a cute hanging herb planter, and a stack of nice chopping boards, and for once I’ll be able to edit my little kitchen vignettes. Of course, once the kitchen is done, we’ll pretty much have a baby here, so who knows, maybe I might not get round to that as quickly as I’d hoped. Oh, and on that note, we also have to create a nursery from scratch!
