A fresh kitchen make-over

Why hello there! Sometimes the interior design world can feel so small. Earlier, I was having my usual rummage around Pinterest (as you do!) and stumbled across this fresh kitchen in mint green on Decor8.  The kitchen is the result of a very cool hack by Danish firm Reform who specialise in jazzing up IKEA kitchens with architect-design fronts and counter tops (the result is pretty fab don't you think?). And here's the 'small world' - the lovely apartment (which belongs to Tikkie Adelie) has been captured by Karen Maj Kornum - who's beautiful Copenhagen pad appears on the front cover of my book! I recognise a couple of her signature pieces - such as the eucalyptus which has been dyed using beetroot and the vintage Moroccan rugs sold through her store Another Ballroom.

Oh so fabulous.  Such a breath of fresh air!

Could you imagine having a kitchen in this colour?

Get the look: Kitchen: basis 01 design (fronts in colour S2005-G20Y with countertop / handles in natural oak) from ReformThonet chair, source colourful boucherouite rugs like the one in this home here, Beni Ourain rug, AJ lamp, sheepskin throw.

Karen Maj's home in the heart of Copenhagen is one of the most popular home tours I've shown on My Scandinavian Home - you can take a peek here and here - and I also had the pleasure of spending the day there to capture it for The Scandinavian Home! That girl's got style!

Have a lovely day!

PS Feeling a little sorry for myself as I've just spent the morning at A&E - turns out I've torn a muscle in my calf :( - have you ever done that? It's pretty painful! I'm back home all settled in by the window and lovely Farmor (my mother-in-law) has come down to help out - and just brought me a cup of tea, aaaaaa, things aren't so bad after all!


  1. Amazing, I love the minimalism but at the same time how functional the kitchen looks after the makeover. I love the new look.

    1. So true - it's so clever how they've combined aesthetics and functionality :)

  2. Ouch, a torn calf muscle sounds painful. I hope you feel better soon! Take it easy. ;)

    1. Thank you so much Emily, it's not too fun but hopefully it'll be on the mend soon :)

  3. I'm not sure i could live with a kitchen in that colour, but it reminds me of my Gran who loved that colour and i loved her!
    How did you tear your calf? My husband did his last year digging up a boston ivy vine, I've neverbseen someone look in so much pain. It's a year ago now and it's better but not 100%. Look after yourself.

    1. Your poor husband! I was playing netball on Monday evening and it suddenly felt like I had been kicked really hard in the back of the leg - no fun at all, but it's getting better little by little. Thank you! x

  4. Niki, can you identify the big leafy plant in the first photo? (in the corner)
    Wishing you a speedy recovery - but let the family pamper you in the meantime!


    1. It looks like a Calathea Orbifolia.
