Everyone knows that the kitchen is the heart of the home, but decorating yours uniquely can be a chore. We’ve compiled a guide to some of the easiest and most stylish ways to give your kitchen that personal touch to impress guests, at dinner parties and over coffee.

Best pastels

If you’re a fan of the pastel kitchen trend, you’re probably aware of SMEG – but they don’t just make fridges!
