My brother's kitchen





Axel... The youngest in the family.
A dream of mine is to have a big, light and very Swedish kitchen. My brother just renovated his and what a dream it is! I love the fact that he choose a chalky beige color instead of traditional white on the cupboards. Natural and easy to modify with help of curtains and china. I can imagine this kitchen dressed in a Christmas outfit. Can you?

The kitchen layout is just super with all the light coming in from all the windows. Lots of counter space, great new flooring which hides the dirt well. :) Big thumbs up for that. One thing I've learned is to avoid black or dark floors in a kitchen as well as light... It might look exclusive and posh but is a nightmare to care for and keep clean. Every single bread crumb, cat hair or drop of water will become visible to not talk about foot prints from bare feet... With kids and animals it is good to think smart and this middle grey fake wooden floor is perfect.

I enjoyed many breakfasts together with my lovely nephews Arvid and Axel here last week. I hadrly went to any other rooms of the house. I loved sitting there so much. I miss them. I miss my brother. I miss his kitchen. I miss the light... Maybe one day I will have a kitchen just like his. Keep on dreaming - dreams come true. Right?

  2. I totally agree with you, I would live in this kitchen!
    Love the light and all the space, lots of storage and the "easy" colors.
    I would decorate with different colors due to the season.
    Keep my fingers crossed for your kitchen.
    Have a nice evening.

  7. What a nice Swedish kitchen! And you are so right about the dark floor in a kitchen, it's look nice but the broom is always in a corner ready to be used.... And it seems to me that this little boy looks like you!

  8. Hi Annette, that is one lovely kitchen. I hope your dream of a similar kitchen comes true soon. :)
    In India usually we go for colorful kitchens as we use a lot of turmeric in our cooking and there is a lot of tempering in oil! Plus I think we go overboard as far as color is concerned :)
    Have a lovely week.
