In our last renovation, we did the standard contemporary all-white kitchen - glossy finishes, stone benches, modern, minimalist.
I want more of a country look in this kitchen, for obvious reasons, and had thought I'd do white again, although with timber benchtops.
But, after flicking through some magazines and pinterest, I realised I was getting a little sick of looking at white kitchens. Plus, we are planning white walls and a white splashback... white on white on white.
