bright and cheerful

Moving into a new house means I’ve got renovation on the brain! These four adorable kitchens are providing some inspiration (if only the bank account could keep up). I love how the one in the picture above is actually quite small and simple, but the bright splashes of colour still make it inviting.

I know that happiness can’t be found in objects, but if it could, I think the object would be a pink Smeg fridge. And maybe a matching KitchenAid.

quaint and rustic

I’m not sure where this kitchen is, but something about the flowers drying from the distressed painted ceiling beams and the way the light falls through the doorway makes me want to believe it is in a farmhouse in Provence.

I think this one might be my favourite. In fact, you could go so far to say that I… love it. Sorry.

 

Which do you like best? And what do you look for in a kitchen?

Hammocks have long been an obsession of mine. Something about the way they cocoon you in and their gentle swinging motion makes them so soothing. Plus if you have the style that curls up at the edges, it’s almost a hiding spot for getting lost with a good book. (Sticking point: I can’t see how cups of tea and hammocks can coexist without spills and scalds. Anyone have a solution?)

The thing is, I’ve never lived in a place that’s been big enough for one. But we’re about to move house, so I’m allowing myself to dream of finding a nook in our new place where a hammock could go. Somewhere for reading, daydreaming and maybe snuggling with a baby or two. And how perfect are the ones pictured here, which are all indoors? You wouldn’t even have to contend with the mosquitoes that seem to go along with many garden-based hammocks.

I’m thinking sturdy wall fastenings are a non-negotiable.
