The cupboards and the floor are original to the 1929 villa and are made of Rimu. The walls are my favorite colour, a kind of celadon. I was over the moon when we found the pot rack in a similar colour in a junk shop. I also like retro teatowels, but they HAVE to have a little pale green in them. This rule stops my collection getting too out of hand! That and my habit of accidentally setting fire to them! Between the white and the green colours the kitchen always feels fresh. In the door way is a little play area for my daughter when I'm cooking-with a mirror and blackboard at kid height.
My husband and I are big collectors/op-shoppers-amongst the things we like to collect are cookie cutters (me) so I couldn't resist these "cloud cutters" made by a local artist, above the kitchen sink. Also metal kettles (the hubby), on the mantelpiece; and baskets, macrame bags and maori kete which you can see hanging around! " Thanks Max. Her blog is Blackbird has spoken.Happy Gas.
