The kitchen is the heart of the home where all the good stuff happens! It is a backdrop to happy family memories and plays host to the ebb and flow of family life, from the busy breakfasts and horrible homework to the peaceful moments and the big occasions that celebrate life. Here are some of my favourite kitchen pieces to help set the scene…
