Kitchen heaven!


The kitchen light’s are coming! The kitchen light’s are coming!…and I have no real idea what they will look like or whether they will actually work, except that in my head they are totally brilliant.


I needed three pendants to hang over the new island unit but didn’t want to go down the industrial look, not because I don’t like it..I just wanted something very different.


Also, I’ve realised over the years that I have a passion for folk art form we don’t take seriously enough here in the UK.  All the images here are typical examples of British canal art – the traditional means of decorating canal boats and barges. I think it is stunning, ingenious and totally covetable.


So I’ve commissioned three milk churns to be painted just for me by my favourite canal art painter…and they’re finished!!


Seriously. Can’t. Wait. More details when they’re here.

    Hope they are indeed ‘brilliant’! 😉 Always had trouble with lighting – either they look lovely but don’t light much, or feel like an operating room….

    This is a great idea. I love folk style too – it is a nice change from all the beige and grey everyone seems enamoured with these days – in interior design as in what they wear.
