I want it now – Rachel Allen’s kitchen

A couple of months ago I blogged about Nigel Slater’s kitchen and how I watch his show to creep his kitchen. Every Saturday morning I do some solid creeping of Rachel Allen’s these days. I really adore modern, streamline kitchens but I always, always gravitate to cute kitchen details in my own home. I can’t avoid it. I’m just the kind of person who needs a cottage kitchen feel. I think Rachel’s kitchen {whether it’s real or not} is a pretty solid mix of modern and cutie petutie. 
A playful mix of dainty pinks, cranberry reds and a couple of carefully placed purple tumbler glasses. The pink Le Creuset cookware. A mix of modern and traditional ceramics. Pretty potted herbs, pink chopping boards. And that Belfast sink – kill me now. 

This kind of shit makes me want to buy a home of my own and drape cute things on anything that will stand still. Although I will say there is a bit too much going on in parts of the kitchen for me. I’d have a touch less cluttery bits.

    I like the shelve running along the wall. She has an amazing huge space there and lots of great toys there. The bench space is amazing. I do like the pink tumblers.
