If you love a bit of vintage and mid century then you are in for a treat when you enter After Noah in Islington. Full of restored and reproduction tables, chairs and cabinets you are sure to find a gorgeous one off piece.
As well as the vintage items you will find an array of new accessories, lighting and soft furnishings all with a mid century vibe. There is also plenty for industrial lovers, with wire cabinets, shelving and pendant lights.
After Noah is a modern day treasure trove of homeware. Be sure to visit if you are in the area.
There has been a gradual shift in kitchen design and what we want from it. We require storage solutions for small spaces, and better cabinet and worktop finishes, creating more choice and allow us all to be more creative. As we become more confident with design and layout, we start to be braver with colour. And it’s colour that is popping up in kitchens everywhere, just look at Pinterest!
Of course you will still have your preferred style, whether contemporary or traditional but now you have more options to bring colour into your kitchen.
Whether it’s a bright wall colour, colourful tiling or cabinet fronts, the choice is yours and the options are all out there. For an array of no fuss cabinet fronts then ikea.com is a great place to start. For something more bespoke have a look at uncommonprojects.co.uk
If you are limited on budget and want to refresh your kitchen, look at painting areas [ walls and cabinets ] and tiling. These small changes can make a huge impact.
Key colours we are noticing at the moment are greens, blues, and pinks!
