Yes, good idea that one, Little Jem, or you can buy that tiered shelving so tins/foodstuffs are visible and more accessible but a drawer... or 2 or 3(!) in fact... defo needed for cutlery, flat cooking utensils, a rolling pin, baking trays, silver foil, place mats & candles to name a few items that are in mine...

Hi everyone, this is my house and I'm so glad to see it's receiving so much praise!

To answer some of the questions being asked:

1) Access into our house is through a main front door, then into another door into our living room (not through the garden)

2) The kitchen was an amazing redesign by the Kutchenhaus team, and the washing machine location is no bother at all

3) We have a floor to ceiling fridge freezer which sits behind one of the grey cupboards, next to that is a full size pantry unit. We also have a small dishwasher - every appliance we put on our wish list they found space for!

4) We have drawers within cupboards, and many secret spaces in the kitchen for things. There's a cupboard above the oven which fits lots of spices in for example

5) Our flat is also a 2-bedroomed small flat, it's a shame the pictures of the smaller bedroom (through the green kitchen doors) aren't available. We thought about knocking it down and making the kitchen bigger, but alas we'd probably lose money on our property in doing so...

6) Our bedroom is a little darker than the other rooms, but personally we like how cosy it feels

Omar was a wonderful designer to work with, and I'd like to add that my husband and I went into this project knowing exactly what we wanted from colours, tones, the two-tone effect in our bedroom and even the items to increase space in our flat. We are a colourful, creative pair! My Pinterest board and ideas were physically brought to life in every space - so for that, thank you Omar!

The use of color in this stunning space is wonderful. Top picks:

1) The tone-on-tone green in the bedroom is so cozy

2) The bright jewel-tone blue where the accessories shelf sits is bold & ballsy!

3) That rainbow of colors in the living room feels light & fresh

Well done! Loving every little piece of this project!!
