Kitchen love – Our ‘home sweet home’ makeover.
We still have elements of red that we like from our old kitchen (like the toaster & kettle set, the table mat is very handy for when the little ones craft, and we’ve recently got some lovely lined curtains from Next) Other than that, we have splashes of colour using artwork like our large ikea print, and also theres usually an array of flowers dotted about to freshen up the space & create a welcoming homely aura.
Flowers instantly brighten up a room don’t you think?
There are little spaces in which we still want to update or alter, that being a new blind, having a bit of a declutter to enable more space in the cupboards, a new kitchen table & chairs etc but those things take time & money and for now we are just so proud where we’ve got to in such a short space of time having three littles around all the time, my partner working so many extra hours after work including decorating and re-vamping the bathroom & bedrooms (more on this soon!), not to mention we’re expecting our fourth baby in less than two weeks and thats been a roller coaster in itself! Another addition to our home in the past few weeks is that we’ve had our driveway completely re-done from an awful mud bath to a fresh area where we can fit our vehicles on, with a path and no messy mud for the kids (or me!) to slip up in!
My little area where I do most of my blogging/photography work. This needs a little re-vamp but for now it’s a place where I can do what I love. Don’t you just love this cotton tea towel? The words are beautiful, I’m thinking of framing it, it’s too lovely to get stains on from food!
Stainless steel sink & tap. We purchased our kitchen from Howdens and love the high standard of product.
Here’s our cooking space with integrated fan oven with hob on the top, the ever so delicious fruit bowl and our shiny new kitchen scales, I love these because of the ‘old sweet shop’ vintage vibe from them.
Excuse the utility room in the background, this hasn’t been started yet but as I mentioned, we have little snippets that are unfinished but I’m proud of our evolving house, and with each step we take we’re slowly transforming it from just that, a house into our ‘Home sweet home’.
