Home Design // Kitchen Update // From Gold Blog

Welcome back to another home update! This is how the kitchen looks now (and yes can you believe I still don't have a dish washer?!). Trying to think how I can use that space for something functional or just fun (ideas very welcome!).

I love the white cupboards and how light and bright it is but I feel like it needs a bit more colour (not that I don't love our bright red espresso machine... it was on sale for half price so I've learned to live with it). I also hate how much the eye is drawn to our microwave but can't seem to find it a better home and can't seem to part with it completely (we sadly use it quite often). Any tips please comment below! One of my favourite items in my kitchen is my DIY Geometric wooden cutting boards.

I want to get a cute little baby plant (air plant or cactus) for the windowsill (even though we get PLENTY of green from all of our bamboo growing along side our flat).

Home Design // From Gold Blog

As you can see in this photo and the ones about most of my counter space is filled with all my husbands coffee brewing equipment! The counters are way to cluttered in my opinion and I'd like to organise the coffee corner a little better. A few other of my favourite items is my Recipe box (made by Cassandra for my wedding see the hand painted recipe cards here), my cook books and my Hexagon Towel Ring, you can find it here.
