|Our dream - a Smeg fridge and wooden flooring in the kitchen (image)|
So when we moved into our house, there was basically only one room finished and that was the kitchen and even though it's nice and large with an open plan feel it's not really our taste but we are not going to do any big changes as we plan to sell the house and the kitchen is very much a focus point but that doesn't mean we cannot dress it up with more personal objects which we have already started doing. Our first port of call is to change the bar stools as we want something more us, more simple with a country type feel but fits into the slightly modern look our kitchen has.
|Our kitchen when we moved in|
We have been looking around and have decided to go with something more natural and wooden and love the pop of red from this stool at Homebase as well as this plain white one from Ikea. I also tend to go with white and build on top of that but I am trying to bring more colour into our life and home and love the red stool which is reasonably priced at £85.
|I love both of these bar stools|
I really like storage tins, cute ways to display kitchen utensils or food, such as interest bowls as well and mismatched cutlery and lately mason jars. I think these are really small ways to add that personal touch in any room and are usually pretty inexpensive.
Homebase currently have some great kitchen accessories, cookware and little bits and bobs for some amazing prices - I have put together three I would love to see in my kitchen to bring in a bit more colour and fun, especially this retro Laura Ashely storage cake tin for less than £5
|Colander £4.99, Laura Ashley storage tin £4.93, Owl Print Oven Glove £1.99|
Earlier this year out kettle gave up the coast so we got a really cool retro yellow one which we love and recently acquired an espresso coffee machine and the last appliance I really want (for now) is a nifty and slimline juicer - oh how I want a juicer - something like this Bella whole juicer would be amazing, it looks great and I can taste the fresh apple and orange juice now
|Bella whole fruit juicer £149.99|
