Who: Sarah, avid reader & fan of The Women's Room
Where: a 1966 bungalow in leafy Dulwich, a cricket ball throw from the college
What do in your kitchen and who with? Unmodernised 1966 bungalow with 1970s style ‘open plan’ kitchen, including diagonal brick wall set in front of sink/work surface ‘demonstration’ area. The kitchen is the only warm place in the house & it’s a large space so husband, boys & anyone else who’s around tend to gather for impromptu tennis, cricket practice etc.
How would you describe your style? I love colour & pattern, particularly yellow, ikat & bold geometrics (at the moment) & will always find a place for rye pottery, Scandinavian oven-to-table ware or woven food covers.
What is your favourite and most useful item? There are a few essential items in my kitchen including the best ever glazed bronze teapot, woven food covers bought years ago in Zanzibar which hang on the wall when not being used (so they are useful & decorative), ikea magnetic notice board which always seems to look slightly out of control with never enough magnets to go around, very handy large wall clock & favourite ikat bowls bought on a work trip to Istanbul.
