A Coffee at Naomi's
A cup of coffee at my friend Naomi's house, I know, it looks like tea, I drink my coffee with lots of milk. It's just how I like it.
This flat is full of great finds, the metal lights in the kitchen are from a farming catalogue - piglet incubation lights that set them back £4!
The saucepan racks are old luggage holders from British Rail (as it was once known).
All these lovely open shelves (like these and AC's) are seriously making me think about getting rid of cupboards in our kitchen but I'm just not tidy enough...
I'm afraid my ikea tupperwear lets the side down in this photo!
(It's hard to get nice pics with two enthusiastic toddlers charging around... sorry, lame excuse!)
The kitchen worktop is reclaimed in the truest sense of the word, grabbed from a school that was having a refurb before it got skipped.
I love the colours in their kitchen and living room, strong red, peacock blue and a deep lime green - which actually co-ordinates perfectly with this rubarb from their allotment... (not sure that was entirely planned...)
Cunning under sofa toy storage.
Tiny bottles in their immaculate bathroom.
Two year old Eloise has this beautiful mobile in her room, home-made by her Grandpa.
Naomi told me what this little planter is meant to be... but I can't remember - some sort of ducting or drainage thing... hmmm. Very cute as a plant pot on their balcony.
