Interior Trends: Enduring or Fads?

Monthly Archives: March 2010

A round up of the latest cool kitchen accessories...

On March 30th, 2010 by .

Whilst searching for kitchen products I have found the trends are a mixture of vintage, modern, graphics and recycled materials. A true appreciation for the old methods of cooking mixed with the desire for new designs and Eco gadgets.

We love these Pantone mugs from Objects of Design; collect one in every colour for a swatch book stylish displayWhat a great idea! A chopping board for all of your culinary needs, Objects of Design


I have one of these square Grillits from Le Creuset and they’re fantastic

Get the week off to a good start with this handy week planner from Love Eco.  Unbelievably, it’s made from recycled vending machines and coffee cups!

For when you’re on the move, make a fresh cup of coffee and use the cup again and again.  All you need to do is take it to the coffee shop and ask them to use this cup rather than their disposable ones..perfect! Eco Outlet.

This pretty vintage style jug, from the Dot Com Gift Shop, can either be used as a water jug or for displaying some fresh spring flowers.  I have a similar one at home and I use it for my fake silk (but very real looking!) hydrangeas.

Staying with the vintage look; we love this floral hip flask also from the Dot Com Gift Shop – I know they have been around for a while but trust me on this when I sat they will always be fashionable as they are so pretty…

My mum used to have one of these wire baskets to hold eggs, it always reminded me of being on a farm, even though we lived in London, maybe add a couple of feathers in there to make it look authentic! No-one needs to know.  Available from Twice on Line

I like this simple white apron with the mixture of typefaces and the adjustable neck strap.  Also available from Twice on Line

Add to that these fancy font tea towels and you’re complete.  From a selection at the Dot Com Gift Shop

This small box from Not Mass Produced, is made from reclaimed wood with holes inside for six eggs.  It also has a hinged door with reclaimed chicken wire and wire chickens on top with real feathers!

This juicer, from Objects of Design, avoids the problem of pips or pulp with its perforated catching cup.

This stylish Egg set is from Prezzies Plus.  A real toasty soldiers for dunking in your egg, marvelous!

I don’t know if it’s right to wax lyrical about my sister’s latest collection of works but I’m going to do it anyway!  She is a painter based in Biarritz and has just finished a joint exhibition in Ondres, France; with the next major show in August at St Jean de Luz.  If France is a little too far away then the good news is Abi now sells her work by email through the Blog. If you’re looking for something specific then just ask as she also commissions nudes and portraits (she’s just sent some works off to Abu Dhabi!!).  I have a nude in beautiful autumnal colours; it’s a self portrait so it’s hung in the bedroom rather than the livingroom!!
