December's Kitchen of The Month: Grey Like the Weather+ Some Cheerful Inspiration

 
The days sure are grey and drab as we head into the thick of Winter. This months kitchen is the epitome of winter days for me: dark, grey and gloomy but with that pop of yellow to add a little bit of bright cheery light! I don't know much when it comes to architecture and interior design but I do know a lovely room when I see one! Everything about it is so modern and sophisticated. I'm not sure I'd really go for those large white chairs as they don't look all that comfortable. I'd probably put in some nice grey stools instead. That simple large hanging light really works well in this setting. The open shelving is something I have talked about before and I still really like what it adds to a kitchen, this one included. Now, can we please talk about that massive window? A perfect scene like that is something I'd like to look out onto every day. I love natural sunlight and a big window like that is just too good to be true.
 
 I can just imagine having a kitchen just like this one day cooking up a storm, entertaining and even relaxing- drinking a coffee & watching the kids through that window as the play on the lawn below. It's so spacious and immaculately designed!
 
 What do you think of it?
 
It may be dark and cold outside but just looking at that bright yellow color makes me feel happy and alive. I would like to pass some of that bright and cheerful inspiration on to you today:
 

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future, it is something you design for the present!


There are hundreds of languages in the world, but a smile speaks them all.


The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, but in liking what one does.


The earth laughs in flowers.


If you want happiness for an hour — take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day — go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year — inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime — help someone else.

  1. Cheery post! I love the yellow bird. I love birds in general (not as pets), but just out in the wild, flying around :-)
