Kitchen Makeover ~ My Inspiration




Before and After, Decorating, DIY, Home Makeover, Kitchen Makeover, Nesting, Renovating (1)


Today I wanted to share the inspiration that has been guiding my home makeover project.

The first room I decided to tackle was the kitchen, as after all this is the hub of any home.  Mine has now had a complete makevover in an industrial salvage style, yet with a chic, sophisticated edge. No mean feat when on a miniscule budget.

I gave the kitchen cupboards a revamp in ‘Soft Steel’ makeover paint, a lovely muted colour that looks really fresh and contemporary.

For the main walls I went bold with ‘Slate Grey’. It’s gives a really nice contrast to the lighter cupboards and works perfectly with the new slate floor, as well as looking really crisp against the white woodwork.

What I’d really love to do now is throw in a few splashes of an accent colour. I’m thinking purple will work really well against the calming and neutral grey. So I’m hoping to gather a refined set of kitchen accessories in this hue over the next few months.

For now I’ll be adding a few homely features, such as herb pots to run along the windowsill as well as the most essential part of my kitchen: the chalkboard planner. From writing the weekly food shop to recipe ideas and little messages to one another. My chalkboard is sacred and will be making a reappearance in the new kitchen.

So for all of you tackling the home DIY projects like I am, how are you finding it? Do you need a hug, as I know I do! I ache all over, but I am loving every second of transforming my home. Don’t forget I love a natter so if you have any stories to share, tips and tricks that will help me along the way or finds you think I should not be missing out on then please do pop a comment in the box below.

Happy decorating.

It's Friday whoop whoop! Balloon arches are cool again thanks to @houselarsbuilt #wedding #weddingplanner
Loving all the pastel popping up on the runways. It doesn't have to be sugary sweet it's all in the application. #wedding
Sometimes we just need a little reminder. We're definitely dreamers and proud of being so, constantly thinking up new and better ways of doing things, thinking about how we can improve & what we want to achieve. Tag a friend who needs reminding of this. 👇
Oh @Dior how we love thee. Industrial scaffolding contrasted with delicate pastel pink & shimmering mirrored walls. So inspiring
Working on something a little different in the studio currently. Incorporating the family tartan of one of our #wedding grooms and the brides love of fresh green.
Gamechanger! @hemsleyhemsley #healthyliving #hemsleyhemsley #spiralizer
So I'm honoured to have been nominated for the #20BeautifulWomen challenge, but being the inquisitive creature I am I wanted to understand what it was for & how it started but it seems it's a bit of a mystery. Maybe something to do with the book by Saba Tekle via @huffingtonpost or simply to celebrate women who are beautiful inside and out: visionary, kind, inspiring and empowering women. So yeah I'm all up for that. Author of said book defines a beautiful woman as this: "A beautiful woman shares her story so other women won't feel alone. A beautiful woman is peaceful: she has made peace with her past. A beautiful woman is passionate: she is on fire with a strong desire to change the world. A beautiful woman is purposeful: she knows why she was born and does what she was created here to do. Be beautiful." My 20 beautiful & inspirational ladies are all tagged in - I tried to cheat and add more but it won't let me!
Could not be more excited for my gorgeous client #augustbride #Repost @object_style with @repostapp.
