My creative space


Since posting about the (almost) completion of the kitchen reno...(I say almost because I still have some light fittings to put in - more of that later), I have been trying to work out how best to compliment my gorgeous golden birchwood shades.


Oh, quick shout out to Lara from Ink & Spindle (the creative genius who made the birchwood printed fabric) as she featured the shades from my kitchen in her blog this week. Anyway...yes seem to be getting very distracted....I have been considering how I best compliment those shades.

So, I've been randomly picking on my rather gorgeous white homewares and turning them gold. Just not sure of the end product and whether I've gone too far? Your thoughts are appreciated. 




Should I paint the handles yellow? After all, they do look like flowers don't you think?

I love the painted fruit bowl, clever idea to keep with all the colour theme. I think the yellow handles would look really pretty, a pretty burst of colour.

Your fruit bowl looks great! The handles would be sweet in yellow too, it'll all tie in nicely!

yes yes yes.... do the handles why not do the handles on the cupboard above the cooker to accents of yellow on all the small bits you can i say!!! xx

The fruit bowl looks great but just to be different I'll say "keep the handles white"....... (i'm sure they'll look cute yellow though!)

Very cute, and a big Yes from me on the handles.

You can never go too far! Everything looks stunning! Congratulations, how proud of yourself you must be! The handles will look gorgeous in whatever you decide. You'll probably have to re-do them in a couple of months when the paint rubs off after constant handling - colour change coming up ;)
