Over two years ago I wrote a post about some lovely storage jars I'd found. I also wrote about my dream of having a blow-your-mind pantry and laundry one day.
The architect we chose has a reputation for his amazing kitchens, and also for his very sympathetic and timeless renovations of period houses. That ticked two pretty important boxes for me, so he became our man.
So what became of my dream for a fabulous kitchen?
I'd have to say it's been well exceeded. This is our scullery, taken from the door into the garage. The scullery continues into a laundry. That full height cupboard houses the washer and dryer. Beyond that are my six sorting drawers - one for each member of the family's clean clothes. And the next full height cupboard is our drying cupboard, with hanging rails and room for a clothes airer.
My storage jars have found their home.
Right now I have my washer, dryer and dishwasher going. There is a pork ragu slow cooking in the oven, and I'm as happy as a lark.
