As you can probably guess, due to the snow I am working my way through Nigella Lawson's new book Kitchen. Although she is no interior designer, I love that she writes 'A kitchen should never look decorated, it just needs to feel lived in.'
I thought about it and it's true, really beautiful kitchens are only decorated with practical items: bowls, plates, teapots, jars full of goodies - they are, to me, what make a kitchen feel welcoming and womb-like.
What do you think makes the kitchen the heart of the home?
