Our bed arrives today so the bedroom is oh so close to being finished, and with floors up in the other two rooms and decorating underway, I am starting to refine our plans for the main living space, we hope to have some free standing elements but still need to decide on the type of kitchen units we would like. I have searched the internet and found these three great styles by Linda Barker over at Wren Living. We are torn between, really modern – for clean lines and neatness, a classic country style that’s a bit chunky and lived in or a Shaker feel with a contemporary edge?Linea Kitchen Super White and Raven GlossI do think that your kitchen tells a story of how you live, and I really like the Linea Kitchen in Super White and Raven Gloss above. It is clean modern and looks great mixed with industrial elements to add contrast.Wren Shaker Kitchen in Gullwing and AubergineBut then I saw the styling in this second kitchen and thought why not be a little braver? I like the two unit colours, especially love the door and drawer handles and the patterned tiles adds a bit of fun and personality. I am usually hesitant about coloured units but these ones in this Shaker Kitchen make me happy! Wren Sculptured KitchenFinally a more traditional look, the Sculptured Kitchen looks super solid with classic details, the white worktop keeps it modern and again I am drawn to the mixture of two different coloured units. We had a modern white high gloss kitchen before and loved it, but I’d like to try something different this time and these have given me more to consider. I wonder which one do you prefer?

These are all from a range designed by Linda Barker for Wren Living, the eight different door styles are available in 40 colour shades with a gloss, eggshell or matt finish, and with traditional dovetail jointing on the solid oak drawer boxes, my dad would be super happy when he opens one up to get a teaspoon!

    These are all so beautiful! We just painted our cabinets two tones – white on top, dark blue on bottom – and I love it! The bottom color grounds the space and the top keeps it feeling open and airy. Can’t wait to see your space when it’s finished!
