So here's the before picture, beige and bland:
I hopped on Polyvore to create a mood board for my kitchen renovation. Here's what I came up with. I went for red and turquoise to try and cheer it up a little.
And here's some shots from our actual kitchen:
I stuck with the red and turquoise theme for a sort of vintage feel with a few other colour items for accent such as the yellow flowers. The harlequin sherry glasses came from the previous unit and they were too pretty to pack away in a cupboard so they stay out despite not really matching! I mace the curtain to cover our bin and shoe rack and made a matching pelmet to brighten up the window a little.
