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.

Im such a sucker for Pretty! all the above are right up my street and if your reading my Blog then i’m guessing you are too, lucky for us Pretty Pastels are quite big at the moment and most of the big and small stores are stocking them. I could of searched online for hours and hours but at some point I do have to eat, so I’m off to my very girly kitchen to do just that!
