One of the (many, many) things that I love is a big glass fronted cupboard filled with crockery and glassware.
Everything is there, clearly displayed, just waiting to be used.....
...for entertaining or everyday use.
You have to be a bit disciplined about the way you arrange it....
...if it's too haphazard, it just looks messy...
...but there is a danger of over-styling it too.
The look to go for is "smart casual", if you now what I mean.
Uniformity of colour works best, in my opinion...
....although a little injection of colour or texture, like the wicker used below, makes things interesting.
Did you know "cupboard love" is a phrase referring to affection that is given purely to gain a reward.
The term derives from the way in which a cat will give a cupboard containing its food superficial "love" when it wants to be fed. The phrase is most often applied to human activity, for example when a child will say "I love you so much" before or after requesting a treat, for example an ice cream. My children never do that!!
Wishing you a wondeful week ahead.
Till next time
