I have a lot of love for the humble wooden chopping board. It goes without saying that they are eminently practical, but they can also be used to create a wonderfully rustic display in the kitchen, hanging from hooks, Shaker-style peg rails or simply propped up against the wall.
I love the mix of vintage and colour-blocked boards from Lostine above, all perfectly set off against the cream metro/subway tiles.
These boards from the Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading Co. are crafted from a single piece of sustainable hardwood in small limited edition batches meaning no two are the same.
The soft leather handles of these alder wood boards from Rowen & Wren makes them cry out to be hung on the wall and appreciated. Pleasingly chunky with a natural finish, they would also make a lovely serving platter for cheese or cold meats.
And for those of us without the wall space, a collection of boards propped up on the countertop achieves a similar look, and keeps them to hand.
Admittedly, this final display is less practical, but the addition of the small portrait to this display of vintage boards adds a brilliantly quirky touch.
