simply color: heather moore

As a big fan of Skinny Laminx, I was delighted to come across the sneak peek of Heather Moore (writer, illustrator and owner of Skinny Laminx). She lives with her husband and two cats in Cape Town, South Africa. Isn’t their kitchen amazing? Those green cabinets! With wood countertops and small pops of red, yellow and blue, this couple has created an extraordinary space that is both bright and cheerful! Check out the entire sneak peek here. — Lauren

With so many neutral kitchens around (I’m guilty), it is so
refreshing to see one decked out in bright colour. ~Tanya


Such a happy, happy palette. And Babuskas seem to be
turning up everywhere. (I’ve got my eye set on the measuring cup
ones at Urban Outfitters. )


This is actually the exact color scheme of my kitchen!
Inspired actually, by a sneak peek I saw here. I’ve been looking
all over for a tray like those ones, but unfortunately those are
way out of my price range.


Oh wow, that green with wood looks so good, and your color interpretations of the photo are just perfect. I love this!
