A Coffee at AC's

OK, so are you ready to go weak at the knees? I had a coffee (well, glass of squash actually) at my friends the other day... Now, sorry to be a tease, but I can't share this whole house with you in one go, partly as I haven't' taken pictures of the rest of it yet and partly as it's too good to do in one go! This is my friend AC's kitchen. And seriously it is amazing. I LOVE it. I'll let the pictures do the talking.

Hasn't she got good taste?

That is Otto her little boy who is the same age as Henry in the doorway...

And Henry, making himself at home... 

Shall I bore you with some details? That cupboard across the back that you can see in the first photos is actually a very cunning laundry 'centre' with the washing machine and some hanging space. The island is a slim-line one and has a special hob with four offset rings and is clad in boards that were used for drying cheeses which AC got at Retrouvius. Very clever don't you think? They also have a sofa near the toys - but I didn't get a great shot of that. We were actually looking after six kids between us on the day I took these, so I had to put the camera down and help...

I have a deep admiration for anyone who can have open shelves and keep them looking nice... (yep, I'm that shallow sometimes).


  1. WOW!

    I share that admiration! I'd soon clutter those shelves.

  2. Gosh! The pressure of hanging out at all these beautiful places! None of my friends are remotely interested in design, which actually is quite a relief. x

    1. I believe AC has such good taste that she ordered some things from Papermash the other day! I was trying to convince her to come to the craft night with me..

  3. That reclaimed wood cladding, droooool
