At last a look at the finished parts of our Cottage Extension.
If anything stays still long enough I will paint it even the Fridge Freezer got the matte black treatment. The vegetables in the dish on top of the fridge are from an old French Charcuterie. A stable door allows me to drink in the views and keep my feet warm.
The cupboard doors were painted in copper and verdigris and of course were given the Ghost Furniture treatment by fixing a vintage frame with vine tomatoes placed inside, in the same colours.
A vintage frame holds a vintage artist's palette now a blackboard and a Phillipe Starck Hooktoo Utensil Set. A very laid back 3D Bon Appetit stuck to the wall.
I numbered the cupboards because I was sick of describing which cupboard held what to Harvey. Now I just shout NUMBER 3!
Black was the chosen background colour for the walls and even the taps.
To separate the kitchen from the dining area we put in a tree from the forest outside our door and attached a piece of African Padouk to it to create a breakfast bar.
A rise and fall ceramic lamp from The French House gives a soft light to the very red wood below.
The odd branch still sticking out from the tree comes in handy for hanging kitchen wares on.
