The KITCHEN edit
I'm always seeking out inspiration, whether for my home, travel destinations, style, food or family life.
So here in this journal as well as over on my Instagram page I'll be sharing an edit of just some of the people, places and objects that are feeding me with inspiration and creativity ~ starting with the heart of the home, the kitchen.
Here's the edit...
Siobhan McFadden ~ @home__stead
Siobhan has the most wonderful family home and a glorious way with colour. Subtly soft tones fill each room, and her kitchen, like many, is the heart of her home. Gorgeously simple cabinets leave room for other elements to sing, from her delicate porcelain ceiling light and original flooring to a stack of vintage chopping boards and considered artwork.
Katarina Matsson ~ @ettrumtill
I adore Katrina's eclectic feel, the gallery wall filled with a gorgeous collection of photography and artwork along with the stack of books (spine facing!) bring such a sense of character to the space. The light is something of a wonder and that Stokke highchair with splatterings of paint is such a truthful and playful piece of furniture with many a story no doubt.
Laura & Nora ~ @_designtales_
This photographer and stylist do instructional style beautifully. Darker than dark kitchen cabinets combined with the softness of marble, added with the warmth of their personal collection of objects, vintage chopping boards and ceramics, copper pans and florals.
Considered Things ~ @consideredthings
A beautiful, warm home in East London with a modest and perfectly formed kitchen. Dark cabinets, along with shaker style open shelving and enviable sash windows for the light to stream through.
Cate St Hill ~ @catesthill
Cate is a London-based stylist with a blog brimming with simple and affordable tips for your home. Her home is beautifully curated and her clean, modern kitchen often features on her grid. The floor to ceiling cupboards means everything is tucked away, leaving a calm and minimalist feel. Cate is so very generous with her knowledge, sharing tips on how to organise your kitchen, to how to style the countertops. And, her little sausage pup Francis is a little styling prop everyone needs!
Number 5 Cromwell House ~ @number5_cromwellhouse
Steel framed windows allow the light to flood this gorgeous open kitchen and dining space. I love the added touch of artwork propped on the counter and woven textiles on the floor.
Baileys Home & Garden ~ @baileyshome
Baileys Home & Garden is one of the reasons I set up Object Story ~ I've been visiting their destination store for years and never leave empty-handed. Sally and her husband have such a unique style, sourcing objects around the globe, but with such cohesion. You could pick up any ten items in their store, and know that they will all sit together harmoniously, it was this concept I wanted to achieve for my own little store. Their kitchen is a mix of treasured items and furniture remodelled to form unique pieces.
