Kitchen Update x


Oh Joy aboundeth! I got home yesterday to see the antique French bookcase sitting in it’s new home for the first time!   The builders have done a sublime job incorporating it into the new day it will hold all our crockery and say I love it is an understatement. It’s always a dodgy time when you imagine a concept – and you’re pretty sure it’s going to work..but you never know until it’s actually in place. The relief!


The plan is now for all the big units to disappear off to be spray painted whilst the room is decorated and the floor is laid…which has bought on a major paint crisis.


I thought I was blissfully sailing along, all paint decisions for the kitchen made.


Except the spray painters want an RAL number for the colour so they can mix up their own paint with additional hardeners. And I’ve chosen a boutique paint that no-one knows – Madison Grey by Abigail Ahern.


I’m running off now to the paint shop to see if they can help me – the last thing I want to do is to start looking at tester pots again…and of course it’s the big fascinator poker night piss-up party tonight.  Always the way…


Laters, Kate x

    At heart we are all kitchen dwellers. Since time began, human beings have thrived by gathering around an open flame. With its sweet smells, its gentle crackling sound and its mesmerizing flicker, the cooking fire provided warmth, conversation and a delicious dinner all in one! We are still drawn to the fire, though now it’s evolved into a rather sophisticated convection oven. Enjoy your new and wonderful kitchen!
