A couple of weeks ago I was at a coffee morning for Macmillan Nurse Fund Raising at a neighbours. It took place in her new kitchen. Like ours the units were white but the entire kitchen felt so much more homely than ours. Artwork hung on the walls and various trinkets and accessories brought the place to life.
So I have decided to inject some "soul" into our kitchen.
We went up to Ikea and bought a kitchen island and I love it. It's a great transitional piece of kit as when the Rayburn is not on ie warm days/summer we use the electric oven so it's good to be able to put pans and dishes onto the surface - on a stand ofcourse, rather than walk over to the granite worktops - ideally placed next to the Rayburn.
The duck-egg blue of the Rayburn is very in vogue at the moment so I have been buying bits and bobs from charity shops and sales.
In sharp contrast I bought this large canvas print for £4 - bargain.
