Shabby Chic Blue Kitchen
When I planned our kitchen I was torn between my beloved vintage shabby chic or a more modern style.
One day a new owner will grace our beautiful home. They may love my style or they may prefer clean lines and a modern look. I think we struck a very good compromise. I think the blend of old and new worked out quite nicely.
We decided to stick to a white palette and then colour could be brought in when my heart desired.
At the moment our kitchen is filled with my french blue treasures. Two weeks ago it was bursting with pink.
A fresh bunch of flowers is enough to make me spend the whole day reorganising and cleaning.
I love that we kept the colour scheme so neutral.
A pretty tea towel or tea cloth on my little table brightens everything up in an instant.
I occasionally bring my very shabby and almost way too chippy table into the centre of the kitchen when I have a friend over and I enjoy sitting in the space sipping tea.
It is bright and airy and I love it. I still haven't decided on curtains but I'm going to keep them white and possibly use an old antique lace tea cloth.
Old meets new,
antique meets modern
and somehow it all works !
