The Kitchen.

For many years our cottage was a 'Play House'; it's where we had fun, enjoyed ourselves, and lived the simple life.

Now, as we grow older, our priorities are beginning to change, and we are slowly re-organising everything to cope with a different type of existence (grandchildren, animals, Lord M's unpredictable behaviour, etc).

We've recently installed new dark brown, double glazed, aluminium doors, that not only keep out draughts, but also let in masses of light (they look wonderful). We're in the process of building the 'tower'. And now it's the turn of the kitchen.

Actually we love our ramshackle kitchen, but it's no longer practical. It's been there for nearly 40 years and it's time to change.

I have 'a man' coming in this morning to have a look. I don't really want an 'off-the-shelf' Ikea style kitchen, but I do need more space.

Decisions, decisions. More of this anon!

  1. For me the kitchen is the most important room of the house. We 'updated ours' about 5 years ago. French kitchens seemed very expensive so we ended up building our own using oak units from the UK. Granite tops were sourced locally (Espere) and the guys did a wonderful job moulding them to our uneven stone walls. I wish you luck!

  2. Sounds like an exciting project. I'm eager to watch (sounds creepy!).
    Kitchens are so important to a home and so very personal...take lots of pictures!

  3. I just discovered your lovely blog. I'm just new into blogging & have just finished off my own blog on fashion & interior design.
    I had a lot of fun putting it together maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.
