This is one from the "I meant to show you forever" pile. I am sorry that the pictures aren´t that great, but it´s really hard to photograph my darkish kitchen. Also at one point I´ll have to get a decent wide angle lense. The other day I found the perfect one! It costs 700 Euro. A girl can dream, right?
Anyways. So since getting our new kitchen I felt that above the old bench there needed to be something special. You know how in some spaces blank walls are totally fine, and in others not? This is one of the latter. I thought of a mirror, because you know I love mirrors in a kitchen, but that would mean that I always have to look a me in the mirror while cooking, and dear God no this isn´t an option. So one day I saw a lovely kitchen in a decor book with lots of framed photographs above the counters, and I thought hmmm... I could do this.
And so I did! And I really like it! I had my my own food photographs blown up and the frames are Ribba ones from Ikea, so this wasn´t an expensive project at all but I think it makes a big impact.
Now, onwards with the kitchen. The next thing to happen is new paint on the floors. These light grey floors are certainly nice but I am about to lose my mind with the 20 paws that are trotting in and out of this house PLUS mud season. So I´ll go darker this time and also I´ll do the diamond pattern I wanted to try for ages. These days I am choosing colors and I think I have made up my mind. Exciting times! Oh yes.
