Lifestyle finds: industrial kitchen accessories


We are in the process of exploring kitchen ideas for our house, and with so many styles on offer we are drawn time and time again to the more industrial kitchen accessories and finishing touches.  Dashes of copper, concrete, wood and marble throughout whilst trying to maintain a light filled airy nature to a kitchen that is long and narrow and not naturally streaming with light!

I have had great fun over the few weeks (ok, ever since we moved in last year!) looking at different kitchen designs and how to accessorise it to reflect our tastes and styles.  I have dreams of hosting cocktail parties for friends, big family dinners and chilled out Sunday brunches and to go with this we have a great collection of recipe books, serving dishes and glassware at the ready.  I am constantly inspired by wedding table décor and how this can be translated into dining table heaven and have my eye on Kate Cullen’s dreamy silk napkins and beautiful table runners in every colour and design just so that I am never short of gorgeous items to adorn the table with!  Of course, this will be somewhat limited by the storage space we have, but this will be maximised as much as humanly possible with the final kitchen design and I’ll have the equivalent of a capsule wardrobe but for table décor!

I have put together a few of my favourite kitchen accessories that really showcase the beauty that is in some of the more “industrial” looking materials such as brushed steel, copper, concrete, wood and stones.  I’m sure some of these will feature in our new kitchen once the wheels are set in motion (and I’m really hoping this is something we can do this year, I have big plans for Christmas – sorry I know it’s early to be mentioning the festivities at this time of the year!)
