Its just over 12 months since we had our kitchen installed.
It has been the biggest bit of work we’ve done on the house so far, and we are still in love with it, thank goodness. I often share a kitchen shelfie over on Instagram, as I love having open shelving in the kitchen. And often change the look of these (much to my husband’s dismay- where’s the coffee now?)
So after a year I thought it was time to show it a little bit of first birthday love. I had a small list of things I’d been looking for the kitchen, so this refresh is perfect timing. Getting a couple of new kitchen additions ready for Spring and of course future kitchen shelfie snaps.
For this post I’ve teamed up with Wayfair again. They have such a wide variety of products on their website and there is something for everyone. They have challenged a group of bloggers to create a Wayfair Spring Shelfie.
I thought this was the perfect excuse to treat my kitchen (and me).
A new bread bin was high on my list of things I wanted to get for the kitchen, the one we’d been using seemed to take up a lot of worktop and was clunky and square. I spotted this enamel one with stripes and just had to have it, although it did take me a while to choose between red or blue. I chose blue in the end as I’m a total sucker for a nautical theme, I think its a timeless look that doesn’t date.
It takes up less room on the worktop but still manages to hold the same amount of bread and crumpets as our previous bread bin. It’s part of a vintage revival range that Prestige have out at the moment, and they’ve a few things that co-ordinate together. I did fall head over heels in love with a kettle (never thought I’d say that) but it was out of stock so I went for this cute enamel pan, which is actually a great size and I’ve used it loads already.
I also wanted to replace our salt and pepper shakers, so found these graphic ones. They have a real Scandinavian look to them and I love anything with a great typeface too.
I spotted these Sagoform canisters last year on a different site, so have coveted them for a while. They have a real 60s-70s vibe about them. I was looking for something to store regular teabags in and a better sugar jar than the one we were using. Job done with these two.
I also couldn’t resist this worktop protector either, with its 1960s kitchen motif design. Pictured here proudly displaying some recent vegan brownies I made. Wayfair have actually sold out of this particular item but here is a similar one.
I also stocked up on a couple of teatowels, we go through them so fast! I wanted something that was more practical than my usual choice of the prettiest design. These are super fast dryers, and they actually really are. Gosh that sentence sounds so middle-aged!What do you think of my choices?
