Let's meet Bonnie...
Tell us a little bit about yourself...
I am a very practical person, and I love to get my hands dirty! I am very hands on, and I am currently undertaking an entire home renovation on my new house. I also love to do a bit of sewing; making new cushions and curtains to go around the house.
Describe your dream kitchen...
A country-cottage style kitchen is my dream kitchen, with lots of character and with large windows flooding the room with natural light. I like neutral colours, so a neutral colour palette of cool grey tones would be perfect. I like having lots of workspace for prepping and cooking, so lots of worktops and a large kitchen island would be on my list. Having lots of worktop space means there isn't a need for wall cupboards, allowing as much light as possible to flood the room, making the kitchen part of the outdoors.
Tell us a little bit about your career. How has it unfolded?
I have always had a keen interest in Textiles and Photography, and I have always been creative, which made kitchen designing come very naturally to me. I have been designing kitchens within a trade environment for two years, and I am looking forward to working with homeowners to design and create their dream spaces within their homes in my role with Burlanes.
What do you think makes a 'happy home'?
A happy home is filled with all the people you love, a glass of wine always helps too!
Name a kitchen gadget that you couldn't live without!
It's not a kitchen gadget as such, but a big, good quality cooking pot. I do love a meal that you can cook all in one pot.
What would people be most surprised to know about you?
I am named after a classic 750 Triumph Bonneville motorbike!
