Kitchen inspiration

The Meghinini MIA Fridge

I absolutely LOVE old-style fridges… not the plain white boxes, but the pastel coloured, rounded old Smeg fridges. They evoke a time of good-housewifery-past but with all the amenities of the 21st century.

But after seeing one on Nigella’s Express show recently, I have gone for the industrial fridges, but coloured, of course!

The MIA fridge is absolutely my choice, I think! Meghenini makes pretty industrial fridges. I love the yellow one below, but at UK$5000 for a double door one, it’s something that will have to wait… a long while.

And what a perfect sink for the laundry room!

Now, this is also a cool idea for the small living space. The Grandma’s Kitchen opens up to reveal a cooking space and dining space. Perfect for small studios, granny flats, Hong Kong living quarters and even the poorly student rooms. (not sure about student budgets!)

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
