Kitchen Obsession

One more day until our kitchen designer comes. In the mean time, I have created some moodboards to keep me inspired!

Spot the differeence! The basic concept is white shaker doors with Ice Snow Caesarstone benchtops around the perimeter, with dark stained oak on the island. White subway tile laid in a brick pattern. Stainless steel 900mm oven with concealed rangehood. Double ceramic farmhouse style sink with modern pull out faucet. White plantation shutters on the windows (these are already ordered), chrome cup pulls for the drawers and these gorgeous patterned ceramic handles for the cupboards (from ebay seller Knobsmacked). The gorgeous 'Moss Rose' Royal Albert teacup given to me by my grandmother will be box framed in a dark frame with a white matt and green border, to spread love through the whole kitchen. We are currently deciding between light stoney coloured walls, emerald green walls (have not yet discussed this option with my husband!) and the same Natural white that is currently on the rest of the house. 2 lights to hang over the island will be either industrial style metal ones (from Ikea!), or the cane ones from Beacon Lighting. And a splash of modern classic in the form of 2 Kartell ghost stools. What do you think?


  1. Love your plans! I think white walls with those tiles. I love the lights in the first moodboard the most. I can't wait to see it all come together!

  2. how exciting! - white walls and white tiles, I agree with Amanda (but I'm a 'safe white' person) and the lights in the first pic are exactly what I want as well - I'm about to start re doing my kitchen as well - all I know at this stage is black and white tiles on floor, white cupboards and subway tile splashback - no idea on benchtops - good luck!
    Oh and love the kartell stools xxx

  3. Love your moodboards! My favorite is #3 the one with the white walls! Can't wait to see the final result!
    ps-thanks for stopping by my blog the other day :)
