Très chic kitchen

Oh, I want it! So pretty, so quaint – a little slice of Paris in your own home. When I look at this room, I’m transported to a 1930s street cafe with Poirot sitting in the corner twiddling his moustache and solving mysteries (ok, maybe not…)

Normally, I find monochrome too dull, too boring, but this simple kitchen-diner proves me wrong. For me, the cute check curtains and leaded windows lift this room from ordinary to extraordinary, without being over the top. And, just in case I can’t quite shake free of my fixation with colour, a quick lick of paint on the window frames, picture rail, maybe the chairs, and some new cushions (I’m thinking a deep wine red…) and hey presto – you’ve got yourself a whole new room. Emily

    I too love this! But I’d be very happy with it “as is” in only black and white. To me it feels restful and energetic at the same time. {Is that possible? LOL!} So many pretty details here but not over the top. When you add the color of the food and the people, it’ll be fantastique. Tres chic et magnifique! Merci!
