For the second instalment of our home décor inspiration series, we’re heading to the kitchen. For many of us, the kitchen has become a second living space. It’s where we cook, entertain friends and family, or just chill out. The kitchen should feel welcoming but uncluttered and stylish.
We love the look of this sleek, streamlined kitchen with a hint of cosiness, so we’ve scouted out some fantastic products to help you recreate this look in your own home.
The Eye-Catching Print
An empty wall in the kitchen will draw the eye for all the wrong reasons. Make an impression with an eye-catching print or canvas – the bigger the better! Sue Fenlon is a local North East artist we adore – there may even be a Sue Fenlon canvas hanging in the Shelley Louise Design kitchen! This canvas is called Wild Violets in the Hedgerow and will add a welcome splash of colour to a monochrome kitchen.
Wild Violets in the Hedgerow on 101x76cm canvas, £165, Sue Fenlon www.suefenlonart.co.uk
The Elegant Lights
We can’t get enough of these statement pendant lights. They’re the perfect balance of bold and elegant, adding that extra something to your kitchen. Hang these above your kitchen island or table for a sleek and stylish effect.
Catlett 3-Light Kitchen Island Pendant, £143.99 www.wayfair.co.uk
The Ideal Candle
We like to think that most things we whip up in the kitchen smell amazing, but that doesn’t mean we want to smell last night’s stir fry the morning after. Not only does our Pink Grapefruit & Mango Large Glam Candle look the part, it will fill your kitchen with premium fragrance when lit. All our candles are hand-poured, and this refreshing, tropical blend is perfect for the kitchen. Right now we’re offering 20% OFF our Glam Candles and other products with the code KITCHEN20 at the checkout*, so don’t miss out!

The Beautiful Blooms
A striking bouquet in pride of place at the centre of your island or table will give your kitchen that homey vibe. The soft and soothing colour palette of this bouquet will create a calming atmosphere in your kitchen – much needed after a stressful day! Urban Flower Rooms is located close to the Shelley Louise Design workshop, so we’re already big fans of their stunning arrangements. You can order online on their website.
Peaceful Hand Tie, £45, Urban Flower Rooms www.urbanflowerrooms.co.uk
The Breakfast Bar Stool
Although we love the colour of the bar stools in our mood board image, we prefer a little more support. This modern bar stool maintains the elegant grey colour scheme but offers a much comfier seat, complete with footrest.

The Geometric Tile
When was the last time you upgraded your kitchen walls? A geometric tile offers a cool yet subtle effect. Even just redoing your splashback area or a feature panel will make your whole kitchen feel brand new!
