Hello, long time no read strangers. Life’s a little manic at the moment to say the least and I’m kind of going through a transition period with this old blog of mine so posts have been few and far between. But seen as I’m already planning to write a post dedicated to that topic and what changes I’ve got planned, I’ll share instead some interior inspiration I’ve been gathering recently. Because let’s face it, we all love a lil’ home decor inspo’ – especially when it’s mint, white and gold interior inspiration.
Although I love my flat, and I genuinely do, there’s one room I don’t particularly like and that’s my kitchen. I often dream about how I’d remodel it, or how I’ll have my own kitchen when I finally buy somewhere. It’s poorly lit, magnolia painted on the walls and I definitely can’t do any kind of cooking/baking blog post in there because as a backdrop, it’s rubbish.
Obviously I love subway tiles, especially the way they’ve been laid in a herringbone fashion below, but throw in some mint accessories, granite worktops (because let’s face it, a single gal with a mortgage ‘aint ever gonna be able to afford marble) and gold fixtures and you’ve basically built my dream kitchen.
I would ideally like an open space where I could cook and entertain at the same time. And seen as this is a wish list, then I’d love an island with reclaimed wood and industrial style stools for everyone to gather around whilst I burn whatever I’m trying to make for dinner. It would have to be light and bright, and I think I’d keep the walls white, with white tiles and add colour through appliances such as a classic Smeg fridge, kettle and toaster.
As you can see from my inspiration pictures, the reason this all works so well is because of the finer details – the mint green salt and pepper grinders, the brass rail on the wall, the marble and wood chopping board and potted flowers and succulents placed around the room. Anthropologie, Oliver Bonas and Rose & Grey all do bits and bobs that would be perfect for this kind of kitchen style.
Are you fan of this mint, white and gold inspiration? I literally can’t wait to be able to design my own kitchen, especially if I can start from scratch and create my own little baking paradise. What would your dream kitchen space look like?
