I mentioned yesterday that Mr FF has commenced work on the room that is going to house our new kitchen and dining room so I am getting really exciting and making sure that in my own mind I know what I want.
Yesterday while we were in Bordeaux, we popped into Ikea and I bought a magnetic knive holder so this is a step in the right direction.
So far I have bought:
*Fabulous red letters that spell out the word "C U I S I NE "that you can see in the photo above.
*Carmague Cushion cover from Toast for the window seat
*Antique light fitting for the dining area
*Antique oak chairs which I am going to paint white.
*Vendange tapestry - this has lots of red in it and red is going to be my accent colour.
*Plate rack - not sure where I will use this but it was on sale a while ago and I thought that it would be good.
We are not having upper cupboards so I need to ensure that I have enough space elsewhere in the room but will be having some open shelves.
*White ceramic sink
*Clock for above one of the doors
*Stainless steel cooking range
Which just! leaves me with the following to buy....
*Kitchen - oak which I am going to paint
*Tap - typically french in style and the same as the one that we have used in the other apartments.
*Dish washer - stainless steel I think at this stage :-)
*Kitchen island for the centre of the room
*Kitchen stools - I really want a pair of antique ones but may have to settle for a new pair if I cannot find any that I like.
*Stainless steel fridge/freezer
*Floor tiles, we are using the same ones that we have in the entrance and in the showroom so I am hoping that they have them in stock.
Je vous souhaite à tous un mardi fabuleux,
