A lovely late Christmas present in the form of a gorgeously white Lorna Syson cushion with two little tits (British made using sustainable materials) has inspired me to give our kitchen a bit of a rethink. There’s nothing major we can do – we’ve got a little dining table space which is also home to a huge hulking dresser, a mis-matching bookcase and an upright piano. It’s pretty tight in there. But what I can do is rethink what’s on display (basically whatever doesn’t fit in the dresser) and how to make it look a bit more intentional rather than the kind of nice, but ultimately very bric-a-brac, look it’s got going on at the moment. Anyway, this cushion (soon to be matched with another) with its fresh whiteness is the starting point. Step two is to replace a set of favourite bowls by Dutch homeware brand Pols Potten – lovely little dotted and stripy bowls you really do want to have on display. I’ll let you know how I get on.
