Kitchens I Like

Kitchens I Like by Miss Moss

we’re lucky to live in a wonderful apartment in an old art-deco era building. it’s unusually big (a one bedroom that’s the size of a typical 2 bedroom), has wooden parquet floors, and is solidly built – so it’s warm in winter and cool in summer. only thing is, the previous owners remodelled the kitchen… in a style that, erm, i kind of HATE.

trays

serving trays are pretty much the last thing i thought i’d ever blog about, because they are the most boring of the kitchen paraphernalia right? we could make a list i guess. anyway, these ones from svenskt tenn with original designs by architect josef frank are rad. i’m happy to know there are some seriously cool trays out there because i love using them myself – especially when making tea, let’s get our sophistication on. plus sometimes i just get tired of carrying three to four cups in my hands and nimbly avoiding bumping into things that are likely to cause a spill of precious brew.

anthropologie home

hey anthropologie, come to south africa please. i want your crazy awesome homeware in my home, homey.

(i wouldn’t actually want the cockatoo tea pot… well maybe i would. i’m so confused!)

cupboards

kitchen

i love these kitchen cupboards – so simple! i know people get kind of stressed out about redoing their kitchens, then they end up spending lots of cash on fake wood and fake granite tops etc etc – but look how great this solution is. i reckon probably inexpensive in comparison, too. if you ever get tired of that scandanavian wood vibe, just paint them. boom. via decor8
