I fell in love with this absolutely darling of a girl’s play kitchen. It has a kitchen window with a gorgeous rainbow country view. It has a chandelier, a complete set of matching curtains, kitchen mittens and tea towels. Leopard print combined with pink just has to be an all-time girly winning combinations. It is really fun how all the elements are presented here.  Fabulous, albeit a lot of work to make your own.
