Eight ways to pimp up your DUKTIG kitchen

One of the most popular design posts I’ve written was this, on some of the amazing remodelling ideas for IKEA’s DUKTIG play kitchen.
Along with the majority of my friends â€" we own this £65 kitchen, bought for Charlie’s 3rd birthday because it was simple and unisex, so perfect for him and his little sister.
As per usual, it’s still waiting to be pimped up â€" but I LOVE seeing how others transform them.
So by popular demand, here are eight further ways to revamp your DUKTIG.

Fash! Geek: My Style | The midi dress I will wear all summer

I’ve been taking the middle ground for a while now.
In terms of my preferred skirt length, there is nothing that makes me happier than a bit of fabric wafting around in the general direction of my ankles. Midi, not TOO maxi, just hitting me in a place that’ll still show off a coy little peek of skin â€" and preferably a tanned one at that.
It’s a midi for me. My wardrobe is bereft of minis, all charity shop-bound back in the early Noughties when I made the decision that, actually, my thighs and legs are very grateful for a longer length.
And I don’t even care that designers like Vuitton or Saint Laurent raised their mini skirt game this season, because the high street has spoken â€" and midis have never been more popular.
So it comes with a little frisson of excitement when I find a new midi of joy that I know will get it’s money-worth and then some.
I’d spotted this little beauty of a dress in Other Stories a while ago (and spotted on my v cool friend Bianca), but honestly the hanger appeal was a big fat zero. Until I tried it on and it was instant love.
In a lovely, fresh blue porcelain print and made from cool cotton crepe, it is a dress-up or dress-down dream of a dress that I have already worn three times. Considering it arrived two weeks ago, you can already see it’s a cost per wear winner.
I’m planning on dressing it down with plimsolls or my Stan Smiths, but mainly intend to swan around wearing simple tan sandals and a slick of lipstick.
Midi marvellous.
