1st round of Interior Giftswap!

Oh I am so excited... the first theme for this year is "kitchen". Well I allready posted a long post about my new kitchen... see kitchen post so I decided to post a kitchen questionare in stead....

What colour does your kitchen have? It is a pale green. Spring green I call it. A very old colour, and not very much used. The cabinets and fixings are white, with brushed or polished steel knobs and pulls. There are also some red and teal accents in between.

Describe your kitchen: I would say my kitchen is fairly vintage. It has that good old feel to it, allthough the cabinets and such are all brand new from Ikea... Everything else I have picked up from fleamarkets or at my granny's house. I love everything enamled and old and GREEN so it's filled with treasures from the past. There is an very old cooking stove there, it's usable, but I only have it there for decor. It brings the old days to life in my kitchen. My glasscabinets are filled with old pressed glass, greengate (becuase it looks so wonderfully fresh and vintage at the same time) and figgjo pitchers. There's oak surfaces, and "oak" flooring that brings a warmth to the room. I have a very small kitchen table with two large, pale teal chairs. Which are fleamarket finds. It's a small kitchen, cozy, and works well for me. There is quite alot of floor space concidering it's size. Cabinets are hung in a typical L-shape, and I have a separate area for coffee making, with an old spice drawer shelf for loose tea!

Describe your dream kitchen: Honestly, I think I have my dream kitchen. It could of course have been alittle bigger... but all in all I am super super happy with it. It is just renovated, and I got exactly the style I was aiming for!

What are your favorite activities in the kitchen: baking! I love to bake!!! Mostly cakes and cupcakes.... I also enjoy cooking for friends and family... I'm not too keen on the day to day cooking... but festive cooking is great fun! I love to entertain!!! (Which is why I cant wait for my diningroom to be finnished!)

Name something you miss and want in your kitchen: a hanging rack over my old cooker. There used to be a very ugly white one there. My dad has promised me a new shiny one. And I cant wait to hang all my kitchen tools. I also wish I had a winerack buildt in, but couldnt fit one. And I need more bake-wear (but I am so picky and want everything vintage ha ha) and more enamled stuff. And a cookbook stand, for when I am baking.... I guess I also wouldnt have minded some open shelves... I think they are so incredibly country cottage like... But there wasnt any room, and I do have two very active cats that loooove to climb... so things are safer behind closed doors. Oh and I would have absolutely loooved an old frenvh vintage faucet.

What is your favorite kitchen "stuff": Jugs and pitchers from figgjo (other makers as,or anything enamled! My favorite might just be the green vintage scale I got from granny. I basically love anything vintage, esp green figgjo. And I love little vintage plates. I never keep sandwitch meats in their packets, but rather put them on decoratve plates and wrap them up... it's so much nice to take out... even if it's just you...
Do you bake or cook alot? oh yes... I love both... allthough as I mentioned before, baking is closer to my heart! I'm a bit of a sweet tooth I'm afraid...

What do you hate about your kitchen: uhm... not that much... it's so new to me, I think I'm still just awed and in love with it...What do you love about your kitchen: oh so much easier to answer. I love my massive oak surfaces, my glass cabinets, my old cooker, my coffee area, my chairs! And I love that the floor has a trapdoor in the floor leading down to the basement. And I love the colours I chose! I wanted it to feel like forever spring, and I think I pulled that off beautifully!

Worst kitchen chore? Doing the dishes!!! I dont have a dishwasher, decided against it. Something I might regret in time, but at the moment I am trying to look at the bright side and think of it as living "like granny"... yeh...
Are you a kitchen-fanatic that never gets enough kitchen details and stuff? Oh yes... I love kitchen accents, dingys and vintage stuff... I always search for kitchen treasures at fleamarkets ect ect...

Do you have anything in your kitchen that's not of any use, but are just SO pretty? not that much actually... I like things that are pretty AND usable.. but I am sure I have something...

Coffee or Tea? coffee mainly, esp hazelnut roasted coffee... YUM... but I do like tea as well... I have loads of different teas...

Chocolate or Vanilla? Choclate... I love my chocolate... with nuts... I love everything nutty...

Cooking or dining? Both... ha ha... but I do love to cook for others!

Dining Room or Kitchen Table? Well my dining room is brilliant, it's painted in a very very light green shade, with pale teals for the kicthen chairs (which are all different) and white furnishings... it's got two glass cabinets for displaying all my figgjo, and a bird theme.... There's a teal chandelier, and plate shelf with more figgjo... So I must say I love my diningroom and will use it as much as possible once it's decorated and finnished!!! Besides my kitchentable barely fits two... so yeh... I will be using my diningtable...

I dont have a camera at the moment, so these pictures are all from the internet... To show what I like... see my kitchen post for pictures of my actual kitchen :)

Ta taaa... I cant wait to go out and shop for a gift!!!
