Clean Sweep

My sister’s boyfriend’s parents have flown over for three weeks.  The four of them have spent most of the time so far (I think) on a walking holiday, bu this weekend they are in the area, staying with Grandpa.  We arranged for them to come over to see us yesterday afternoon, so yesterday after lunch we had a bit of a panic-tidy of the kitchen.

Once the panic was nearly over I looked around and didn’t really like what I saw.  It is quite a big kitchen, and although the main space is full of table, it can still feel really bare.  Probably because I’m so used to there being stuff everywhere.  We’ve allocated wall space to put pictures up, but haven’t got round to choosing which pictures to put there (might be a job for this morning).  In the meantime there is a big expanse of ‘Shaded White’ (which is a lovely greeny-grey colour). 

We haven’t had the kitchen in all that long, and the tiling still isn’t finished due to DH’s poorly thumb and my oh-i’ll-do-something-else-instead).  Nonetheless, as the year turns, it is starting to look a little… dull.  Not that I have any intention of changing the colour, I do still like it.  It is just… dull.

We’ll see how it looks once we’ve got some pictures on the wall.  Although perhaps the real solution is to not do any more tidying up, that way I don’t notice any of it.

    I don’t think cleanliness necessarily = dreariness. With a couple of colourful pictures and a bright family your kitchen will be completed.
