The kitchen was one of the first rooms to be done in the house two and a half years ago and, sufferering from decision overload, I just painted it cream and put all the kitchen paraphenalia from our old house in it. It's a gorgeous kitchen, but I felt it needed a bit of dressing.
So, this summer, I introduced some colour by painting my photo wall a lovely colour of green/blue (Crown Fashion for Walls in Carnaby):
Then I set about accessorising with a modern twist on traditional farmhouse picking out the cream colour to contrast with the black granite:
I invested in an Aga hob top kettle to free space on the worktop (and be more energy efficient) and I decided to create a little 'cupcake baking' area in the corner (inspired by the course I went on last Saturday) with kilner jars of marshmallows, dolly mixtures and love hearts:
I also spent hours cleaning my oven which now looks like this:
So you can see I've been rather busy for the last few days.
Now, my family are coming for lunch on Sunday, what can I cook that won't require the oven?
Well, I'm not getting it mucky again now I've cleaned it!
