I love the mix of materials and colours in this kitchen. The black rangehood works beautifully with the charcoal grout on the subway tiled splashback. And blue cabinets with brass pulls are so on trend.
Don't underestimate perennials in making your gardening life easier. Perennials will continue to come back every year and will only require minimal maintenance such as weeding and fertilizing. You'll save time by not having to plant and care for seedlings
