Colour Statement

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Wednesday, 15th November 2017

As the nights draw in and our days become shorter, now is the perfect time to consider adding a splash of colour to the kitchen. Nothing brightens up a dark, dreary weekend like a vibrant colour scheme that makes you want to linger in the kitchen, cooking up hearty soups, stews and casseroles for family and friends. Whether you’re planning a whole new design in time for Christmas or you just want a quick update before the festive season begins, there are plenty of ways to add pizzazz and personality to your room....

Friendly Pumpkin Cornbread

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 30th October 2017

The clocks have gone back and the dark nights are here. Twinkly street lights and crunchy leaves fill the walk home from work and even school. Whether you’re out pounding the pavements with the kids on a chilly October evening or you’re just coming home after a long day, a big hunk of this Friendly Pumpkin Cornbread with some soup, chilli or any other warming stew will go down a treat, and it’s not tricky at all to make (see what I did there?). Despite cutting the amount of sugar from the original recipe by 3/4 it’s still quite sweet, but this works really well with savoury dishes and even better if you toast it with a mature/ blue cheese and some pesto for that oozy green-gooey look!

SIMPLY MODERN

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Wednesday, 18th October 2017

We’re going Simply Modern this month, with contemporary kitchens and the sleek, on-trend appliances and accessories to go with them. Modern schemes are a really flexible style solution for all kinds of property, whether it’s a glass box kitchen extension on the back of a Victorian terrace or a compact apartment in the heart of the city. Simple slab doors with a recessed handle offer a sleek, seamless feel which can then be topped off with a worktop either in a complementary neutral shade or something a little more daring to add a touch of drama. The latest quartz worksurfaces for instance come in all sorts of finishes including concrete effects for an on-trend industrial look. Natural timber will also suit but it does need regular oiling to keep its organic beauty looking its best. Laminate is another option and is ideal for those working to a budget.

Quick Easy After School Dinner

Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 19th September 2017

Well, what happened to the summer?  I don’t mean the sunshine, we didn’t have a bad one by British standards, but where did the time go? Whether you have children or not, the darker evenings somehow chase away the idea of loafing around and slowly cooking something to be enjoyed at leisure. Add hungry post-school offspring into the mix and we all need a couple of fast, filling, flexible dinner options up our sleeves.

COUNTRY FARMHOUSE

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 11th September 2017

This month we’re looking at the enduring trend for Country Farmhouse kitchens. These classic styles are always in fashion, and they can be used to complement period properties as well as to bring charm and character to a modern new-build. Cabinetry tends to be painted or natural wood with in-frame doors that can be as simple or as detailed as you like. A fuss-free door panel offers a modern take on the Shaker style, which is a popular choice amongst homeowners looking for the perfect balance between classic and contemporary design.

Scandinavian living

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 21st August 2017

After looking at the seaside chic of Coastal Retreat last month, this time we’re all about Nordic style. Scandinavian design has long been a favourite of interior designers and architects alike and it’s renowned for its simple sophistication – clean lines, natural materials and plenty of white and wood. Rangemaster has all you need to get the look with its latest brochure, which showcases six on-trend styles for your kitchen and how to achieve a similar effect with focal point cookers as well as complementary accessories, fixtures and fittings. Take this kitchen for instance – there’s something really relaxed about this one; it avoids the fully fitted look and goes for a more eclectic approach with freestanding and mobile trolleys and units, a handy breakfast bar, timber table and fresh white surfaces with brick tiles and painted wooden flooring contrasted with a deep charcoal feature area on the wall. Add pops of colour with bold worktop accessories – chopping boards, teapots, trays, clocks, utensils and tea towels can all add personality and pizzazz to the space.

Picnic Pick-and-Mix Handpies

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 7th August 2017

Summer holidays are here and getting outdoors is a great thing to do with the family when you’ve been cooped up in schools and offices all year. Add a a picnic into the mix you've got yourself an adventure - especially when you take the unreliable British weather into account. This recipe will not only make an event out of prepping for the picnic, but it’ll provide a range of options for young and old and something comforting enough to eat in the car hiding from the rain or light enough to eat sat in the sun. You can make the pastry with the kids and lay out all the filling options for them to choose from so that they can make their lunch and mark the tops of the pies as they wish.

Shortbread with a Malty Millionaire option

Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 1st August 2017

Shortbread. So simple and yet so good. Only three ingredients can make you a wonderful, buttery, crumbly biscuit which is perfect to have on your own with a moment of calm and a cup of tea or to package up into a gift. Not only that, but you can use it as a base for all sorts of wonderful sweet treats - perhaps with cream or mousse on top or indeed, millionaire shortbread. However, I’ve always had dubious results when it comes to the caramel part of the shortbread-for-rich-people so I’m sharing a cheats method with you which I discovered by throwing a load of ingredients in my baking cupboard into a pan and has since become a family favourite.

Coastal retreat

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 3rd July 2017

Rangemaster has a cooker for every style, so no matter whether you favour the industrial look, Scandi living or a touch of country farmhouse chic, there’s an appliance so suit. You can download or order the latest brochure for free – just click on the link to view the collections, moodboards and suggested products for yourself. One of my favourites, especially at this time of year, is Coastal Retreat. I dream of having a vacation in the Hamptons one summer so turning my kitchen into a New England haven would be the next best thing! Think fresh whites and sea blue shades complementing shabby chic furniture, stripped timber floorboards and tongue-and-groove panelling on the walls. Throw in some colourful enamelled cookware, glossy brick tiles and factory lighting and you’re good to go.
