Now I’m not normally one for painted furniture and the retro look but I would totally make an exception for this. Along with wanting a black kitchen (something it turns out that many of you desire too) I would like to have only freestanding units.
It’s hideously impractical I know. I have enough trouble retrieving the bits of paper and carrot peelings that fall down between the side of the worktop and the fridge. Mind you, given that Enid Cat chased a frog under the fridge the other day and I have yet to see it emerge perhaps it’s living on the carrot shavings.
Anyway, I digress. When don’t I? There’s something very sunshine and holiday home about a freestanding kitchen. It’s all a bit more relaxed and bohemian than those serried ranks of units all clinging to each one another with a seamless worktop binding them together.
So in my fantasy kitchen, there will be black walls, freestanding units, a big built-in bench – made from concrete with cushions on and, naturally, brass pendant lights. Anyone coming for supper?

By the way, this can never go in a dining room. No, it can’t. It’s for the kitchen only.
