A few finishing touches

With a few finishing touches we final have our new, fully functioning kitchen. Hoorah!
Pretty chuffed with the result and in at just under 20k, including building work (knocking 3 rooms into one), kitchen cabinets (incl. fitting and painting) plumbing, electrics, new appliances, engineered, oiled wood flooring and extras such as light fittings. All in all, quite a good result for the budget.


A few mementos of our travels. I painted the frames with Farrow and Balls 'Railings' to contrast the mustard walls and to frames the blues in the picture.

For the first time in years I can actually see exactly what I have in my cupboards! 2 larder cupboards are amongst my favourite elements. May have to do a slightly bigger food shop to fill one though!

  1. It all looks fantastic ... the mustard is a colour I would never have thought of but looks amazing x

  2. Thank you, Louise. Not being a big fan of yellow, I was a little hesitant, but it goes really well with the grey.x
