Kitchen Ramblings and Pendants

And just like that, after endless rain that never seemed to stop, there was a massive amount of sunlight in my kitchen – just for me and the little Moose.

I’m really slowly changing the look of the kitchen, nothing major I just wanted to get rid of the floral wallpaper and the spotty curtains. I’m older now and with that my taste slightly changes. And the kitchen is older now and is starting to show cracks, chipped paint and cat rubbing stains on the cupboards.

There’s also a massive crack in the resin floor and it has gone from bright white to a dirty yellowish colour, which I absolutely dislike. So we need to get a new floor and I want a new stone top for the island as the zinc top is stained and really grubby.

Another thing that’s bothering me is lighting. The green pendants matched the floral wallpaper and the spotty curtains but looked really wrong with the new tiles wallpaper by Studio Ditte. IKEA hung a pair of white pendants up for a photo shoot they did for the IKEA Family mag but they looked cheap. I however liked the whiteness so I went for the MUUTO MHY pendant in white which I ordered from Flinders I regret that I didn’t get them in a greyish blue instead because I find them slightly too white. But it’s such a beautiful and stylish pendant, I might have to find another place for it …. honestly!

To be continued.

The pendants were sponsored by Flinders, a shop I adore and use very often as I don’t like shopping, parking and all the fuss of other people that are shopping.

    I really like the new tiles, and the plates on the fireplace. Intrigued to see how the small changes can change the whole effect!

      Thanks Hayley. And the fun things about the tiles are that it’s wallpaper so if I get fed up I can change it again.
