Here are our top five buys from Helena's kitchen.

1. A vintage kitchen dresser

What stands out straight away in Helena's kitchen is the gorgeous Provencal kitchen dresser, painted in a dreamy blue shade. This Shabby Chic Continental Dresser from Etsy has been painted in the very chic Railings shade from Farrow & Ball and has just the right sort of look.

Or – if you want a weekend DIY project and would like to try your hand at painting furniture  – get this gorgeous Farmhouse Dresser. It's been lightly 'artisan painted', but you can easily paint over with the colour of your choice.

And because no vintage dresser is complete without a collection vintage porcelain cups and saucers, take a look at the treasure trawl of vintage tea sets available at Etsy.

4. A Rangemaster range cooker

Of course, no kitchen is a proper kitchen without a great cooker, and Helena's kitchen sports a classic Rangemaster. This traditionally styled cooker means business: six gas hobs, two ovens, and a separate gas grill.

5. A glass chandelier

And here you can really get creative where you source your chandelier. Because they're not really room specific, the nicest glass chandeliers are often advertised for bedrooms, but will look equally gorgeous in a vintage kitchen. We like the Sienna Vintage Chandelier from The French Bedroom Company, or the many vintage glass chandeliers available on eBay. Happy vintage hunting!
