But how do you bring a bit of ‘country’ into a kitchen and give it that comfortable warmth that makes them so appealing? Well, here are a few tips to give you some ideas if this is a look you’d like to try in your own home.
There’s a timeless appeal to a country kitchen that really never goes out of style. While sleek, contemporary kitchens may look great for a short while, it’s the more traditional kitchens which remind us of our childhood homes, or that of our grandparents and fill us with nostalgia. It’s funny how the smell of a roast dinner or the tantalising scent of baking cookies can bring us right back to simpler times – when it didn’t matter if things were a little chaotic or busy or there was flour on the floor or crayons scattered across the table. And so the appeal of a country kitchen remains and will probably always be a classic choice for many home owners wanting to bring a bit of warmth into their homes.
Easter is nearly here and with that comes another opportunity to decorate our homes for the season, yay! I don’t know about you, but I’m forever changing small details in my home, rearranging accessories and adding new plants – the latter not least because I’m not very lucky with them and they tend to die on me somewhat prematurely. Poorly plants aside, I love festive occasions and the preparations that come with them. Christmas is a given, but also autumnal get-togethers, summer parties and of course Easter.
