I find that I spend a lot of time in my kitchen, especially when I’m enjoying some downtime. There’s something comforting and therapeutic to me about taking time to create a meal from scratch, seeing it come together and cooking at leisure while catching up with a friend or loved one across the other side of the counter. More and more regularly I find myself feeling inspired by open shelves – I think it’s the relaxed country-style vibe they evoke that takes me back to childhood days in the kitchen with my mum. In fact, the family kitchen looked very similar to this light, bright and colourful space packed full of vibrant Rice cookware and serveware. (Did you catch my review of their new book a few weeks ago?) Much like the space seen here, our kitchen had a sunken farmhouse sink in front of a window overlooking the garden and a n island unit stacked full of kitchenalia that my parents had gathered over the years. I love how this kitchen plays on a multi-coloured palette by creating an eclectic look with various shades from a core palette of three hues. What do you like about this cheerful kitchen? Is the kitchen an important part of your home?
