As some of you know I moved to a new home at the end of 2016. Exciting times but also very stressful times. I have moved a lot in the past (even moved country) but this time I found it very hard. Maybe because it was with a little person (my two-year-old) or maybe I’m just getting old. Anyway, for most of us when we buy a new property there is not much money left for home improvements.
I just felt overwhelmed and for a while and I didn’t know where to start. The new place is livable but it just wasn’t me. So I started with the room that is the heart of our home – the kitchen.
We couldn’t afford a new kitchen at the moment so I did the old trick of re-painting it, I used Farrow and Ball Hague Blue for the bottom of the kitchen units and Wimborne White for the top. I was happier but we still need some lighting, shelves, new table and chairs, more storage… It’s still work in progress and I love seeing it transform.
I’m also keen to make it into indoor botanical heaven with sweet-smelling plants and herbs that I’ll use in my cooking.
And this is me starting my collection…
