Blinding Inspiration: The Great British Bake Off
The Great British Bake Off is a television programme which has piqued the interest of many wannabe bakers across the country, encouraging them to don their aprons, grab their rolling pins and get creative! However, this is not limited to the baking alone, as many are inspired by the retro, country look of the tent and are looking to replicate this in their home.
As the new series of Bake Off starts, why not get inventive this season and bring a touch of the Bake Off magic into your kitchen?
The decor inside the Bake Off tent has the ability to create a warm, inviting atmosphere, even if there is a torrential downpour outside! The choice of colour palette can make a huge difference to how light and welcoming the space is, with soft pastel colours – such as yellows, blues and reds – proving to be popular choices.
If you are looking for a cost-effective way of transforming the look of your kitchen without having to redecorate or renovate the entire room, having a new set of blinds fitted can work wonders. With a wide range of different styles, shades and finishes available, you’ll have no trouble finding the right set of blinds to create a Bake Off feel in your home.
The pastel colour of the Lightstop Buttercup design (see above) from our vertical blind range here at Kingston Blinds Direct can create a quaint, country look without overwhelming the room. It’s soft lemon hue will brighten up the room, while creating a calm ambience perfect for cooking.
Alternatively, you may choose to opt for a rousing red colour to create more of a statement look, such as the Splash Poppy design (see above) from our roller blind collection. It’s royal red shade reflects all things quintessentially British, and it’s versatility and style makes it the cherry on the cake!
Bunting, personalised jars, copper pans… the all-important finishing touches can transform a house into a home, which is why careful consideration needs to be taken when choosing accessories for your kitchen.
The reams of traditional bunting lining the tent is a signature look for Bake Off and creates a classic, rosy appearance to brighten the mood, even if the weather outside is looking gloomy (or the atmosphere inside is a little tense – one word: bingate).
Another sure-fire way of injecting charm and character into your kitchen is to organise any foods or ingredients – such as pasta, rice and sugar – into clip top jars with personalised labels. Finally, why not hop onto the metallic trend by displaying copper pots and pans, kettles and jugs to turn your country house dream into a reality!
