Well, last Saturday incorporated another of my favourite parts of the job again. Me and my sidekick, the photographer guy, now refer to them as 'kitchen trips' and there we were, on another one, at 9.30am knocking on the door of a Balham house. It is immensely satisfying seeing the end product of months of hard graft (as if I had anything to do with it!) and one might be forgiven for thinking that I had installed it myself or indeed designed and put up with months of building work as I swanned around the kitchen stroking counters and pressing cupboards, just to hear the resounding click.... These guys had decided on Alnostar Dur Lava Grey, the cupboards and counter tops exuding a smokey calmness, offset by the more beigey grey of the floor tiles Pure Fossena. The effect was mesmerising. If I hadn't had to run off and watch a bunch of six year olds play 'football', I may well of curled up on the scandi L-shaped sofa and drifted off into contented sleep...
