Styling Your Kitchen Shelves


You gotta love a shelfie! The above picture is of the open shelves I have in my kitchen, the first thing I decided when I started the makeover on my kitchen was which colours would I like to see in there? that was easy, i’m a pastel kinda girl so pinks, blues and pale green was top of the list with pops of red and of course polkadots, I cant lie polkadots make me happy!

I wanted my kitchen to have a sense of fun and be a place where I could cook and bake with the kids and dance away to the radio. I have figured out while renovating our house that I actually need colour around me, I’ve noticed that when I’m in dark surroundings I feel very uncomfortable, but put me in a light bright environment and my mood completely changes, my favourite colour is Pink ( I know,big shock right?) I read up a little on this and I came across something called Colour Psychology and did you know that studies have shown that Pink calms and reassures our emotional energies and alleviates anger and anxiety…..true story! If there was ever a reason to go Pink then that should be it!

When you have a small kitchen like mine, adding cupboards can add bulk and make the whole area feel much smaller and constricted , open shelves do the opposite. Ive done a little research on whats available on the market right know for those of you who want to create a similar kitchen shelfie with the colour palette ive used.

    Hi Kelly,

    I really love your website and came across your Instagram after buying home decorating magazine which had one of your pics in it. It actually inspired me to start my up cycling projects again and love for colour in my home after a period of losing inspiration and suffering post natal depression. It’s true what you say about colour affecting our mood..I’ve since brightened up my home and dared to use pink and slightly off white walls! I’m not on Instagram but have voted for your blog. I just want to say a huge thank you for your uplifting posts I often visit the site to pick me up and get me going again! X
