    The long awaited home tour post is finally here. First up:

    The Kitchen Make-over.

    Before

    After

    We hadn’t planned to do any major kitchen renovations for a while, but with a bit of paint and a few little changes we managed to pull something off fairly inexpensively. I think it turned out pretty great.

    We replaced the counter tops and got these wooden kitchen islands (or rather work benches) from builders warehouse which made a huge difference in terms of counter space and storage. We repainted pretty much every surface in the kitchen and if you love the colour as much as I do you can get it all from Plascon. Here is all the info you need to get the same look.

    The Minty-Green on the kitchen cupboards: “Cactus Pete” ย G2-B2-2ย 

    The fresh grey walls:ย “Plaster” E162ย (They were tiled so we used Plascon tile primer prior to painting)

    The dark grey tiled area by the stove: “Bauhaus” Y2-E2-1

    Sources of the other kitchen items:

    Vintage Pink Kitchen Scale: In Good Company

    Pink ceramic bowl & yellow ceramic egg box: Poetry

    Breville Coffee Machine: @home

    Blue toaster & Kettle: Delonghi (Stax, I think)

    Sky Planter (hanging plant): L’Emile et son

    Kitchen island/Work bench: Builders Warehouse

    (I’ll be posting about our living/dining room area later this week)

    Ps. Thanks to everyone who helped me choose the colour, your input was much appreciated!

    Mint it is.

    Thanks so much for all your suggestions. Mint came out tops and I found the perfect colour from Plascon. It’s called Cactus Pete, and it’s the loveliest shade of mint. It’s…
