So last time I told you about project kitchen refurb, the wall was down, but not a lot else was done. We’ve moved on a little bit, and in an effort to feel like we’ve made a little progress in all the dust and rubble, Mr E finished the dining room side and painting it a beautiful shade of blue. The kitchen is awaiting our poor kitchen fitter, who is currently stacked out, to come and fit new wooden worksurfaces, and then all it needs is a bit of tiling. Which brings me neatly on to my first wishlist item:
Moroccan tiles. Something like this:
I haven’t found any quite right yet, but glorious, aren’t they?
And this leads me on to the fact that I’ve now fallen out of love with my dining furniture. It’s too clunky, and well, dining room-ish. I’m thinking more along the lines of something that you’d find outside a little café by the sea. I love these chairs from Made.com, but I just don’t know about table style. Any thoughts?
Oh and then there’s endless little things: distressed wood shelving, stacks of pretty plates and cups… jars of this and that… nothing too perfect. I would say my aim was a nice mixture of slightly shabby and pretty, with an overall feeling of being on holiday somewhere sunny. Of course, it all costs so much money (thank you to the lovely chaps TSB for sending me this loan calculator link at a very appropriate time!). I’m now dreaming of new solid wood floors and heavenly hand-painted terracotta Moroccan tiles.
What do you think?
