Kitchen Makeover

Farrow and Ball Colour Schemes

Never did paint my hall walls pink. The intention is still very much there, but the motivation is lacking. We will do it, we have to, because someone’s only gone and painted loads of pink splodges everywhere. Have at least identified a colour, Pink Ground by Farrow & Ball. To be continued.

I’ll tell you what we have completed, though. A kitchen makeover! Had a lovely chap in to paint the cupboards and fit new handles. This project felt more achievable than the hall as it relied more on me making phone calls and buying stuff on the internet, which is very much my wheelhouse, as opposed to cutting in which is not. Looks good doesn’t it? Have cheated slightly in that I am yet to replace all the clutter and have bought a new kettle, much in the way of those before and after weight loss pictures where the subject is barefaced and frowning in the first photo, then made up and smiling in heels in the second. Removing clutter equals immediate improvement. See also: cleaning. Tricks of that nature aside, still ever so pleased with the kitchen glow up.

Was incredibly worried about the dark paint, very nearly bailed on the idea entirely, but Mr. Wells urged me to back myself and my choices, legend that he is. It’s a big light room but the corner with the units is the darkest space. Coupled with the dark slate floor it felt like there was potential for it to become a black hole, a happiness vacuum. Nothing ventured, eh?

So on we marched, with our dark plans, towards the potential void. And I could not be happier with the results. For those interested in the details, the top cabinets are Wimborne White by Farrow & Ball and the lower units are Studio Green by Farrow & Ball. The brass cupboard knobs are these ones from The Foundryman who I found on Etsy. Have I missed anything? If you have any questions, fire away in the comments section. And let me know what you think? Do you like the green? Should we have used it on the top units too? The Wimborne White looks so fresh and clean, but the brass looks particularly good against the darker colour, I think. The opposite of a happiness vacuum. Kitchen joy.
