KITCHEN DINER

The kitchen/diner is the heart of the home, so the fundamental goal was to go for a more homely, cosy feel rather than keeping to the formality of the lounge. The farmhouse, Easdale dining table and bench is originally from John Lewis but currently being sold as clearance furniture from AMC Furniture. The plan is to eventually paint the oak legs grey or go for a two-tone distressed chalk paint effect, so they contrast the slick dark oak of the Kai Kristiansen Model 42 chairs. The Aksel pendants from Maison Du Monde are a slick, geometric statement that work well with the components in the kitchen. The plates are a mix from John Lewis, Dunelm and Habitat. The Shella shelving from Wayfair will showcase a selection of books, ornaments and plants.

If you haven’t noticed the blatantly obvious by now, but there is a blue theme running through the house to tie the neutrals and the eclectic look together. My favourite piece for the moment is the Kotoni Indigo curtain fabric from Just Fabrics. The plan is to make a full length curtain for the French doors and a Roman blind for the kitchen window. To top it off, I’ve bought some beautiful indigo faux suede from Terry’s Fabrics for the borders of the Roman blind and potentially some cushions for the lounge.
