Plates from the tip + plate hangers make for a very happy homemaker! Thanks to my trusty (!) stud finder - which also highlights electrical wires - I had to choose a different wall than originally intended. These Janke plates are now on top of the fridge and the cupboard above it - but just as striking as they would have been elsewhere.
They're joined by a bright new clock that was a housewarming present - I think the blue is fantastic against the white of our walls and even contrasted with the black of the pendants above the island bench. These photos don't show you our new hammer mark which is on the ceiling above the plate on far left - woops! Do you ever have those moments when you break something - or make a permanent mark! - and think 'Thank goodness that was me and not my partner'? This was one of them!
