In the kitchen


The icy days of winter provide ample time to add decorative touches to the home, bringing character and charm to an otherwise plain corner. A door leading to the pantry in the kitchen can be given a lift when wooden panels are painted with colourful pictures. Here, the panels have been embellishe­d with images of patterned crockery, pretty flowers and hanging vegetables, which help to give the illusion of depth, while fitting comfortabl­y within the kitchen setting. The wood can also be decorated with découpage using cut pages from a favourite magazine. The door should be sanded first before applying the pages. Once complete, the wood can be given a fresh lick of paint in a bright colour, such as lemon yellow. This will help to lift the pictures and make them stand out.
