A Little Kitchen Inspiration...

So, after all my whining about houses over the past few weeks, it seems that we've only just begun. We put an offer on a house this week, which was accepted! It's an exciting and scary place to be - not least because the house needs *a lot* of work. More than I was anticipating when I started this process - but that's the price we have to pay if we want a decent-sized house in our area. Whilst it's a little daunting to be looking at weeks (maybe months) without a kitchen or proper floors, it does give us the opportunity to make the house our own straight away. Always look on the bright side, right? And in this case, the bright side is spending hours pinning pretty pictures of kitchens and dreaming of what ours will look like in a few months... I know that it might not come to pass, but a girl can dream.

As you can tell, I'm big into the monochrome look. I'm nervous of using black, in case it makes everything seem dark and small, but I just keep coming back to this colour scheme. It feels modern and fun, and it's the perfect base to start adding art and plants and other fun things. Lots of natural wood, a little bit of metallic, and I think we'd be in business. And is it wrong that I've already been looking up where I can get a skull like that one? Because if it is, then I don't want to be right.
