This week's fun theme for My Place And Yours is 'Kitchen Love'. Our host, Vic, says, 'Whatever it is you love most in or about your kitchen, we want to see it!'
There's not much colour or clutter in our house and that's why I really like our kitchen. There's nothing quirky or unusual about it, there are no nic-nacs on display or bespoke kitchen units, but it still manages to be welcoming.
With my husband's obsession for cleanliness, where everything has to be put away in a cupboard immediately after use, nothing can be left out on any of the the worktops. Every surface has to be sprayed with disinfectant and wiped clean countless times each day. But the room's terracotta and off-white pallette was my choice and the kitchen manages to be sunny and bright, despite the lack of utensils on show.
Happily, my husband loves flowers and there's always a vase full of them in the kitchen to welcome visitors, and the huge picture of sunflowers was a bargain he found a few years ago which now hangs in the kitchen. It was a lucky find and is the ideal focal point, adding a cheeriness to the room.
