With the kids back at school & preschool and with so much free time now (12 hours a week – GET IN!), my attention has turned to the beautification of my house and first up is the kitchen. According to my Pinterest, the style I seem to be favouring at the moment is “modern vintage” and if you’ve ever met me, you’ll know that label is me to a tee. At one time I turned my nose up at things that weren’t *authentically* vintage but as I’ve grown older and more practically minded, I’ve seen the benefit (let’s not mention all the light coloured walls with two messy children….). I’d really love an eclectic mix of eras and colour, you enter our house via the kitchen and so I’d like it to be a really bright and happy room. Mismatching is my current love de jour and along with anything I can sand and chalk paint, I am always on the lookout for gorgeous tableware, I can’t pass a charity shop without popping in to see what they have in the way of plates! When it comes to glasses, I’m all about a goblet. Yes, even for Prosecco. Come to think of it, perhaps my goblet love means my friends and I am partly responsible for the current Prosecco shortage?
House of Fraser have the most fabulous vintage inspired collection of wine glasses at the moment and I’m a huge fan of the multi-coloured sets. Perfect for a mismatched table! I also love a lot of their 50s style homeware. Such a glamourous era.
