I am always looking for ways to improve my kitchen. I love to cook, so this is a room I spend a lot of time in every day of the week. Anything that will make cooking easier or the kitchen look more tidy is always very welcome in my world.
You might remember this post, where I highlighted new designers to keep an eye on after visiting the Formland Trade in the beginning of the year. One of the new designers, I noticed, was Maja Bøgh Vindbjerg from nur design.
Maja is 27 years old, studying for a master’s degree in Architecture and lives in Århus, Denmark. She started nur design last year as an outlet for her passion for Nordic architecture and design. I had my eye on the trays from the first time I saw them. I knew they would be brilliant in the kitchen. They come in three different sizes and a range of different colours – including a copper one. I have found the perfect spot for all three sizes in my kitchen. Maja sent me some trays to try out, and I have been testing them for a few months now, and my enthusiasm for the trays are still intact.
My kitchen top table is made of wood. A light wood even – and even though I’ve stained the surfaces with white oil, they are still very delicate. I always have to be ware not to leave any water – or even worse a coloured liquid – lying around. Even dishwasher soap can leave marks. This is where the trays come in handy! The small one is the perfect size for my dishwasher soap, the middle one fits perfect as a tray for some of my herbs and the big one can hold all my oils and vinegar etc.
I used to store my oils, spices etc. on a black and white tray, but this white one is just so much easier on the eyes. My Smeg fridge is big and red – and very noticeable to say the least, so I like to keep the rest of the room quite simple. Anything that is both functional, elegant and simple is always a winner in my book. It doesn’t take me long to get sick of items with too much detail or colour on – they are just too noisy for me. More from my kitchen here and here.
Here is a list of the shops, who carry Maja’s designs. You can also email Maja directly if you can’t find a shop near you, I’m sure she will be happy to help you out.
