Lately I've been gathering room ideas for our kitchen, well every room actually, but I just thought I'd focus on the kitchen today. Whilst in my quest for all things culinary I've noticed a dominent feature... I seem to love yellow and turquoise! Something about these sunny hues make perfect sense for a kitchen, so bright and fresh looking.

We've decided to go for these bottom units from IKEA, with a lovely oak wood top. As we only have a small galley kitchen we're doing without the top units and opting for white open shelving as below. I like the relaxed, country feel they give. White brick tiles are going to be fitted behind the units so I'm thinking I may have to go for a pale, lemony yellow colour for the wall to add some colour? what do you think? I do change my mind often so I'm hoping I won't get bored of it anytime soon. Oh, and my big showpeice will be my 1950's turquoise dresser! I'm IN.LOVE with it, I bought it locally through ebay. Such a lucky score! with original turquoise/green formica top. Can't wait to share it with you, it will be holding my ever-growing pyrex collection.
For our dining area I've already purchased one of these traditional fisherman's pendant lamps. Furniture wise, we have a lovely round wooden table that needs a little tlc and white paint ... cue boyfriend ;) I just need to thrift a couple more dining chairs and give them a pastel makeover! I'm also thinking about this wallpaper for the room, but I'm worried the design may be a bit busy? hmmm...
