Glam DIY Bread Bin and My New Ruffoni Jars

Glam DIY Bread Bin and My New Ruffoni Jars

I know that there is no such thing as a 'glamorous' bread bin. I know this because I tried to find one and failed miserably. Perhaps bread isn't sexy enough to warrant fabulous storage - it has very rustic roots in tradition and craft. It's not the kind of thing one...

Getting Warmer: Adding some wood touches to the kitchen

Getting Warmer: Adding some wood touches to the kitchen

One of my initial fears of having a white kitchen and then deciding against going for wood worktops (lots of discussion about my reasons for this in this post) was that the kitchen would end up lacking warmth. White cupboards, dark slate flooring and white walls could...

What is wrong with my kitchen (and the plans to fix it)

What is wrong with my kitchen (and the plans to fix it)

I know for all intents and purposes, the kitchen as it is right now is functional - no, not DONE per se, but functional in that it's definitely in a 'useable condition'. In pictures, it looks more 'done' than it actually is but that's the nature of photography...

Kitchen Shelving Plans… New Wallpaper!

Kitchen Shelving Plans… New Wallpaper!

I feel like I'm constantly looking AT and looking FOR wallpaper.  Which is kind of strange because I've only used it a total of 3 times in my home - in my kitchen, in my living room and in the dressing room. However, I've been on the hunt for a while now for the...

Worktop Musings:  Decisions decisions (and a sneak peek)!!

Worktop Musings: Decisions decisions (and a sneak peek)!!

I know, I know, I can't make up my mind on this one.  The worktops are the one thing in my kitchen that I've changed my mind about so many times, it's almost bordering on ridiculous.  We actually started the kitchen renovation 1 1/2 years ago and it's still...

Free For All Friday: Mason Jar Herb Garden

I like having fresh herbs in my kitchen.  There's something wonderfully 'home-made-y' and 'kitchen-y' and 'I-can-actually-cook-y' about it.  (Yes, I totally made those words up-y.)  Unfortunately, through the cold and sun-less winter, I've not really...
