As regular readers will know we moved late last year from the suburbs of Bristol to beautiful, rural Devon. A huge change in lifestyle for us and also an entirely different house style.
We left behind our (damp) Victorian terrace and have moved into a (thankfully not yet damp) 1930’s semi. We chose this house in part because it does not need a huge amount of work doing to it but one room we do wish to change is the kitchen.
Whilst we are fairly happy with the layout of the current kitchen it is not of great quality. The flooring is chipped, the cupboards are peeling and the kick-boards fall out at least three or four times a week. More than that though the style is just not really in keeping with a 1930’s property. Kitchens back then had an entirely different feel.
While I am not entirely sure we can go all out 1930’s it would be nice to take some inspiration from this and decorate a little more sympathetically to the period of the house.
Here are a few items currently on my wish list:
This simple white Kohler Whitehaven farmhouse kitchen sink, $1236.75. Wayfair.
30’s style easy to clean and impossible to chip mosaic vinyl flooring, £13.59m². CarpetRight.
These Vintage Deco Au Lait bowls in green, ¢84.00. Burke Decor.
1930’s parlour style flush-mount light, ¢55.10. Blue Fly.
1930’s Chevron Riviera bistro chairs, £325.00. Serena and Lily
So what do you think? Does the period of the house influence your decorating choices or are you all for moving with the times? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
