From hero to zero: After the joy of last week, all that’s now left of the kitchen is an empty room with a few pipes in the floor as it’s all been shipped to the spray painters. I committed to the final colour yesterday…nerve wracking! Particularly when you’ve had your heart set on one shade since the start…and then you’re told it’s not possible. Thank God I’m a great believer in fate..but it hasn’t stopped my heart from pounding.
But more decisions await: There was this post on splashbacks a while back and the final look still needs to be pinned down. Loving all things metallic at the moment so I’m thinking why not?
So much to choose from!
But budget does come into it..so I took myself off to bog standard B and Q to see what I could find that could be man-handled into something different…and was surprisingly successful. There’s this woven brass sheet, reminiscent of French Bergere sofas and chairs..
Laid over a stainless steel sheet it would compliment and pull in the stainless steel from the fridge/freezer..
Then there was this design..if the design itself had been bigger I would’ve snaffled it up there and then..
And then they had this..hammered copper rather than brass..again, not sure as it was only in the smaller size..and all the accents are brass..would pink work??

I was sensible..there’s no rush – yet. So I walked away and will let it all cogitate and stew down…

Thank you!! It’s another layer..you hope it’s all going to pull together but have character! Fingers crossed….. xxx
Wow lots of great choices to choose from! Not that you asked, but I like the gold patterns over the stainless steel. 🙂 Good Luck!
Funny enough..that could be the one! It’s flatter than the other designs, making it easier to clean..functional and beautiful? Ticks the box.. xxx
