Galley Kitchen Ideas
The style of your kitchen pantry can be as varied as your design. Most pantries are a small room carved out of the kitchen space and have standard walls and a small standard door for access. Don't have enough room for a pantry? If possible, when you are designing your kitchen, borrow the space from an adjoining mudroom or laundry room, to enlarge your kitchen space. You will be spending more time in your kitchen than you will in other small utilitarian rooms.
To add a touch of utilitarian elegance, the inclusion of an old fashioned butler's pantry to your kitchen will fit the bill. A butler's pantry will contain your fine china, crystal, silverware, serving platters, and other items used when you entertain guests. Usually located between the kitchen and dining room, this area allows the butler (or you) to prepare the dining room, serve guests, and perform preliminary cleanup without getting in the way of the kitchen staff (or you, again). If you include a sink and mini-fridge in the butler's pantry, it greatly enhances your ability to entertain, and not be stuck in the kitchen.
Your favorite bookstore will also have plenty of books (filled to the brim with makeover ideas and pictures) on modern design and books that explore earlier decades' trends and styles. Bookstores also usually feature a wide variety of design and decorating magazines that you can look through for inspiration.

1. Tell us a bit about your background? My role within the team is Project Coordinator. I help all the teams where necessary on a variety of tasks and have been working on sourcing the merchandise for the event.2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I love going to Brixton Market at the weekend: having a browse and trying all the different food there, picking up fresh bread from the Sunday Farmer’s market and have particularly enjoyed Pop Brixton this summer, especially the savoury crepes from L’Amuse Bouche!3. What’s your interpretation of this years’ theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? For me, kaleidoscope means something that is rapidly changing, something vibrant and colourful which is full of energy and continuously creating something beautiful that comes together perfectly.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? I am currently reading I Am Pilgrim, a fantastic thriller entwining the lives of a former intelligence officer and an international terrorist – I can’t put it down and would highly recommend!5. What’s your favourite TED talk? There are so many amazing TED talks that I have enjoyed, but one that stands out to me is Susan Cain’s The Power of Introverts because it really examined the social emphasis on being bold, assertive and outgoing and discusses how we should change our perspective and understand the value of introverts. In our society, I think there is bias thinking that the ideal students and employees are extroverts as opposed to introverts, and I think it is important to shed light on the positive differences between the two and strive for more of a cultural balance between the two.

We also love bringing people to visit our workshops and conferences.”
