our kitchen

The March challenge over at NIB (Norwegian interior blogs) is kitchen.

Our kitchen is not our dream kitchen, but it is functional (except for the exhaust fan that does not do much else than make a lot of noise). I am not yet sure how my - or our - dream kitchen would look like, but I think it would involve white cabinet doors, wooden worktops and subway tiles, or maybe Moroccan tiles. That is a whole other story. This is our kitchen, for now.

We only did a few things when we moved in five years ago; tore down the wall between the kitchen and the livingroom, built a bar in the opening and painted the walls. Only recently I changed the knobs and the blinds (before). Yes, the fridge is a perfect place for photos.

An old post about the grinders and all the other stuff in the photo. Brigg's post about the old olive oil can on top of the fridge. When we have the cold or flu and use a lot of Kleenex, we use the can as a portable trash can in the livingroom.

The photo with the blue cup is by Jen Causey. The basket is a souvenir from South Africa. I use it for bread.

One of the best things about our kitchen is the amazing light and sunsets we get during late spring and summer. I absolutely love it. The two photos above where obviously not taken today ;-)

More photos from our kitchen can be seen here.

    article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a

    formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.

    the issue fixed soon. Thanks
