I have come to the conclusion that 95% of kitchen chairs are just ugly.
I’ve been trying to find some lovely, simple, elegant dining chairs, and it’s pretty much impossible. Everything is high-backed and made of leather. Yuk. If someone could point me towards something beautiful, I would be very grateful.
I will need to wait until I own my own house of course until I can actually make my whole kitchen beautiful, but I do think about it a lot. I had a press release earlier this week in fact, which inspired a new Pinterest board. It was of this cooker from Everhot. I will give you a minute or so to have a little sigh and imagine yourself here, eating a slice of warm chocolate cake.
It’s a bit gorgeous isn’t it?
I love a bit of colour at home, and blues, greens and teals are lovely in a kitchen. They have a wonderful clean, freshness to them, and give you the feeling that it might be spring, even if it’s raining. (I am very gullible, and can be made to believe pretty much anything.)
The Everhot cooker is a teeny bit out of my price range for now, but you don’t need to have masses of cash to add colour to your kitchen. Coloured glass is always nice, and I have a whole shelf full of LSA glass. My latest addition is the teal LSA Basis jug in teal – the one in the middle here. It looks lovely with a few long-stemed flowers, or use it to serve summer cocktails. I have these tea and coffee jars too, from Amazon, which add some blue, retro style.
I LOVE this kitchen.
I love the contrast of the white with the greens and bright teal coloured tiles. I love that it’s full of plants too – I think bright white makes a brilliant background for plants and splashes of bright colour like this.
When I grow up…
