In Boeresjiek decor shop owner Sonja Fourie’s kitchen, we created a mod look in shades of bright yellow and blue, mixing fun kitchenware with potted herbs and cookbooks

The secret to creating stylish displays with a cohesive feel is to decide on a theme, like contemporary, and a colour palette. Then select your display items accordingly.

Extend your display to the wall by mounting functional items, like these oversized wooden spoons. Colourful chopping boards can create a bright backdrop for quirky items like this Trebimbi Puppet cutlery set and Alessi egg cup.

A row of bowls with mugs inside bring symmetry to the display, while the combination of polka dots and stripes adds an element of fun.

Use pretty everyday items, like these colourful place mats, in an unusual way by storing them in tall glass vases. This is also a clever way to inject colour into a display.

Create attractive mini-displays within a bigger display by grouping unusual items together, like a teapot, cookbooks and a tin of olive oil.

Add interest to your display by storing whimsical items, like these chopsticks, in a storage jar or jug.
