Mise, I do love your kitchen. It's looks like a great place to sit and have tea with you, and perhaps conduct an interview about your life to put on my blog......And, pastel Lego has been around for over 20 years....I still have my daughters pale pink, blue and soft green pieces.
The 'Paradisa' Lego collection would fit in beautifully my dear.PS: your kitchen is BEAUTIFUL!
Hello MiseYour kitchen evokes memories of welcoming homes in the West of Ireland, when the woman of the house would say: "You are heartily welcome; make yourself at home, even if you only stay a week". Perhaps you might consider keeping your child's lego set, it makes it easier to pick up the lost pieces.Tell me what is cooking in that AGA?Helen
Funny how another of my favourite blogs had a posting last week with a hunk of Lego...http://hand-made-love.blogspot.com/2011/06/fantastic-miss-emily-green.html And there are plenty of the pastel colours to be had ESP. In the Equestrian lego bundles.
But I like Legos in their unisex version. Round here the toy aisles are so segregated. Wheels over here. Pink and purple over there. Boys and girls don't meet up until they have sex.
Yes...it IS a problem, isn't it? Kids brightly-colored toys always disturb one's decorating palette.Love your kitchen...so open and inviting.
I love your kitchen - makes me smile! I like colorful kitchens that reflect the whimsy of a family. Once we settle more into our home and have an opportunity to change things up a bit, I definitely want to bring more art and "me" into my kitchen. :)
what a warm, welcoming inviting kitchen...just as I pictured you would have...where’s the aga?
Oh Lego's. They are the most fun when walked on in your bare feet, don't you agree?! I adore Pink Daughter's architectural prowess and her flair for color. The colorful flair I suspect comes from her amazing mom?! Your home is where I'd love to live. Huddled near your Aga stove with a good cuppa tea. If you take boarders who are tidy, just let me know. Thanks to you Mise for your really great comment on Reverie today. Comments like that sure feel good. x Deb
Hello Mise:But, your daughter's Lego house is simply wonderful. We should leave it exactly as it is. And, from what we can see,[which is precious little actually as we are both so myopic], the house picks up the colour of the AGA just brilliantly.But, do tell us, dear Mise how do you control all those AGA ovens and hotplates it looks positively giant-sized to us!
You commentators are so knowledgeable about pastel Lego. Makes me think I should form a Think Tank. I could be the treasurers, you the thinkers. Deal? LPC, wisely noted. It can only be harmful. Bring back homemade bows and arrows for all.Eleni, thanks!
Helen, scones for you, whenever you come round.Chania, that would be such a pleasure. Becky, the primary plastics are the worst, right? I try to throw them away when no one is looking.
JMW, go for as much 'me' as you can. 'Normal' kitchens are so bland, even the classy ones. We must fight back.
Option 1: Redecorate to match the Lego.Option 2: Let Pink Daughter redecorate the Lego house with paint or (The Tomboy's personal choice) actual ice cream.
Your chairs would look perfect in my kitchen (or perhaps Malcolm would let me paint our chairs blue ....... )
I bet you can, somewhere Mise and if not, I see a niche in the market !! XXXX
What a lovely kitchen you have Mise....just what I'd expect from such a fun loving and sunny person as yourself!
I would very much like to sit down there NOW and discuss this matter further. Put the pinot grigio in the fridge and send the driver to the station....
Deb, when you make it to Scotland, you must take your tidy self over here for some home baking.Jane and Lance, how kind of you. I keep remarking to myself that you are the nicest of people and should be crowned King and Queen of Blogtopia. The ovens and hotplates are operated by Beatrice, my imaginary assistant, daughter of a steam-train driver (retired).
Mel, you speak from experience? Lego must be dishwashable then?Frayed at the E, there is no need to seek Malcolm's approval. He's quite ok with blue chairs. Cynthia, how very kind!Jaboopee, the driver is on his way. I've tucked an ice-bucket with a preliminary bottle of Cava into the pony-trap for you in case you need a little pick me up after Irish Rail have done their thing.
Yes, Lego can be dishwashed. It's amazing in fact just how many toys can be dishwashed. (And they can always be binned if the dishwashing turns out to not be such a great idea after all....)
At least you have girls not boys... there is nothing blogtopian about boys' toys.I want the soft lego that gives way underfoot whatever the colour. Gorgeous kitchen. x
first of all, i want to come and have copious amounts of tea and whisky in that kitchen, looks like the place to be.and re: lego colour ways, i recognise your pain, but thankfully mu boys have now moved passed the week long displays of lego structures and into ipod, psp, and laptop chargers. i guess, at least they're black.however darl, colour blocking is in this year, so i'd go with it. Cath kidston will be having it in every window before you know it.
I've just read all the interesting comments and Jules comment about setting a trend with colour blocking just takes the cake. Is that what you have baking in the Aga. Your kitchen is so warm and inviting as all kitchens should be.xx
Yes, but it goes beautifully with your amazing yellow AGA. And the kitchen looks so warm and welcoming, and busy and real, and I love that!
Thank heavens for the many Lego experts you count amongst your commenters, Mise. I'd have been no use whatsoever on the subject.
I'm in for fighting back against classy kitchens. Life is colour, n'est ce pas??? I will paint you something bright pink and yellow for your wall I can be part of your colour.Now - I'm off to hunt for pastel Lego.xxx
I'd love to see Lego in the colors you describe. I believe there is a market for these. Okay, start ringing manufacturers. Make it happen.
The Lego castle fits perfectly into your colourful kitchen, which can definitely be published in an interior magazine :)
We did have some once upon a time. Pink and yellow and pale blue. With princesses and fairies and flowers. Haven't seen it in years *sigh*
Perhaps they could be sprayed a soft rose and posted as a DIY project.
How have I not seen or heard of pastel Legos before? What talent your little one has, such a masterpiece she's created, would love to see what kind of pastelly thing she would build! Your kitchen is so wonderfully happy & bright, such a fun space...love the wall of art, AND the Aga, my goodness, she's pretty!xo J~
Fab kitchen Mise..I love how you use the colour pink throughout your home. Your daughter has excellent taste too. Pastel shades of Lego are a must!!Jeanne xx
I am still in love with your Aga
That Aga, I want it! shead is pretty cool too.
You have the perfect kitchen.I'm also a fan of dishwashing toys, except toys that have been in the sand-pit. Really, who knew that sand wouldn't wash away? The grating noise took weeks to stop.
Hi Mise,Love your kitchen,it's all cute and sweet, if I had one like that I'd be making Guinness cake too! I have seen the pastel lego in the younger kiddies style but it came out long after my children had put the box away.Have a lovely week,Vickixx
You're looking particularly well.
