If you follow my little space over on my social media channels, you may have seen I recently bought my first home - yay! With exciting times ahead, I was lucky that the home I found already suited a lot of the decor from my rented house. My kitchenware featured a lot of natural wooden elements, country cottage inspired pieces and some quirky finds too. My favourite colour is also green, so those lovely tiles worked in my favour. I have to admit, as most foodies would, the kitchen was top of my buying priorities. And I definitely fell head over heels for this one. Since the move, I thought I'd finally share with you a little kitchen tour and a few new kitchenware buys for my home from the likes of Joseph Joseph, Next and Orla Kiely.
I knew I had to get a radio for the kitchen too, nearly opting for one of the stunning vintage inspired Roberts designs. Instead I found this Goodmans 1960s style Oxford radio in Mustard. There are some gorgeous colours aswell, as I toyed with the shades of Moss Green or Porcelain.
I've always loved Joseph Joseph products and already had their Chop2Pot, utensil carousel and garlic press, which I use almost every day. When they reached out with a few of their new products, I couldn't wait to get my hands on their Bamboo Chop2Pot (£15), adorable vegetable inspired Worktop Saver (£11.90) and their Sink Tidy Caddy (£20) and matching Dish Brush (£8), which I think coordinate with the colour scheme really well.
On the other side of the kitchen is a lovely Rangemaster cooker, along with my Tefal Actifry and KitchenAid mixer - complete with cover handmade by my lovely mum. I also have my Hemingway Carnival tea, sugar and coffee jars as well as Robert Welch knives which my dad buys me each birthday and Christmas.
And a kitchen wouldn't be complete with out a constant supply of Yorkshire tea! I've been brewing up my cuppas with my new matching Next kettle and toaster in putty. I never realised how convenient a four slot toaster was until now!
A few other really useful products I've been testing out are the Rotary Peeler (£14) and 2-in-1 Measuring Jug (£14). Both are multipurpose items which mean they take up less space and yet can be used for so many tasks around the kitchen. I love how the peeler (which would be great for right or left handed people) also as a julienne style blade too. So far, so good!
