Comfortable, functional and luxurious; whether it’s in the bathroom or kitchen, great towels are essential.
So, this week, as our kitchen fitter packed up his tools for the final time, I turned to The Organic Company to add the perfect finishing touches to the heart of my home.
Making the kitchen truly my own
We’ve been planning, researching, and most importantly saving, for our kitchen revamp for what feels like forever.
As part of an open plan family room, dining room and kitchen space, we’ve had to split the redecoration of such a large area into three parts, not just for financial reasons but for practical purposes too. I wrote about redecorating the first two rooms on the blog last year.
Wherever I’ve lived in the past however I’ve never had the option of making a kitchen truly my own. I’ve had to ‘make do’ with what was already installed as it was always ‘too big a job’ to dramatically change. So you can imagine how excited I was when I watched the final cupboard door being screwed into place.
Minimal Scandinavian style
Like many people these days we decided to retain certain elements, such as the black granite worktops and existing Ikea units, investing instead in new customised door fronts.
After much debate and colour swatch testing we finally decided on a minimal Scandinavian style ‘Ladbroke’ door from Naked Doors. Each one painted in Farrow and Ball’s ‘Plummett’ grey and finished off with gorgeous inlayed oak circle handles.
This also meant I could finally say goodbye to the dated glass fronted display cabinets and shelving we had inherited from the previous homeowners; replacing them with the ‘Standard Issue’ powder coated steel shelves from Hay, which my husband and I both instantly fell in love with last summer when visiting Hay House in Copenhagen.
Beautiful as well as ethical
Having chosen a rather dramatic look, the muted colours, calm patterns and soft waffle-weave towels from The Organic Company complement our new look kitchen perfectly.
With a clear focus on design, quality and respect for people and nature, The Organic Company has, over the last decade, revolutionised home textiles, developing more than 200 beautiful as well as ethical products.
Whether it’s pieces for your bath, kitchen, children, meditation or blankets; everything the Copenhagen based brand produces is made from 100% GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton. Covering the entire supply chain from farmer, mill and dying house to sewing factory and brand holder, every aspect is rigorously inspected every year to make sure it’s of the highest quality as well as truly dedicated to its social responsibility.
In a time when we all need to rethink the impact we are making, it’s not always about ripping everything out of a room and starting again, but refreshing, revising and reusing what we’ve already got that really matters.
