New Home Ideas - Kitchen and Dining Room

On Saturday I shared with you my ideas for our new living room and I'm really quite excited about having separate rooms instead of our current open plan space. I love to cook and bake but hate the tiny kitchen we have at the moment. When we move we'll have a larger new kitchen and dining room - with a new cooker and even a dishwasher (that swung the deal for me, I detest washing up) and so I'm really looking forward to all the culinary delights (ahem) that I'll be creating (we can hope).



When it comes to my dream home, I'm inspired by vintage-style kitchens with pastel colours and a homely style. I love Cath Kidston designs and fabrics and have a slight obsession with pretty bunting and dotcomgiftshop.com

The cupboards are white, which add to the bright and airy feel in the room, making it feel even bigger and making it easier to add accessories. I like the idea of mixing and matching different patterns and adding in pretty touches.

I love Cornishware, with it's beautiful pastel stripes, and if we have the space would love to buy a secondhand dresser or cabinet to upcycle for one of the two alcoves in the room. Then I'd be able to add the bunting! However, I love the idea of making or upcycling loads of things, and never seem to have the time (or skills) to actually do it!

Talking of projects that I'm unlikely to finish, I also plan to buy one or two cork memo boards which I can customise and use to display the children's artwork. At the moment Lily's masterpieces go on the fridge, but with an undercounter fridge and freezer at the new place I think it's time for a slightly smarter arrangement. Watch this space.

Stay tuned to see more of my new home decor ideas in the next week or so, and in the meantime you can cheat by looking ahead at my Pinterest boards!

  2. Lovely kitchen! We've got white glossy cupboards too in our kitchen, I never regret a thing for choosing it as I thought it will just be covered with dirt so easily but the brightness and airy feel it brings makes a massive difference. Thanks for sharing! #FabFridayPost
