Marlena Kitchen, September 24th , 2017. Cream kitchens are one of the most popular styles – with other colours such as ivory, off-white and buttermilk also popular choices. This colour lends itself to a number of decorating styles, from rustic to contemporary. A new kitchen is a huge investment, so it’s no surprise that so many of us opt for a shade that will stand the test of time. You might choose an ultra-modern glossy cream kitchen that combines streamlined cabinetry with the latest appliances, or perhaps use painted cream cupboards to transform a cottage kitchen that has low ceilings.

Marlena Bedroom, September 24th , 2017. A hit of colour. If you’ve opted for all-white walls, move the colour scheme away from the clinical with subtle shots of sunny yellow, soothing mint or calming neutrals.

Marlena Kitchen, September 24th , 2017. The work zone is where will have your fridge-freeze as well as your kitchen sink, dishwasher and kitchen waste bin - these should all be as close together as possible so you can tip leftover food into the bin, rinse the plates then stack them in the dishwasher with minimum effort.
