Honestly. I am so sick of everyone going on about this ruddy deTerra showroom. Showroom? More like show-off.
You know me, I’m not one to hog the limelight (ahem) but I had some news today. Super interesting stuff it was too. So I thought I might be the centre of attention for, I don’t know, 5 seconds.
But when I went to find people to tell them my big news, everyone had disappeared downstairs. All oohing and aahing over the showroom, I bet. Well, I’ll show them – I’m not even going to look. Yes. I’m going to tell you my news instead, and they can all just go —
Gah. Boss is at the door. Making me go down. Back in a tick.
Okay. So… I might have been a bit hasty with the whole ‘death to the showroom’ thing.
You can’t really blame me. How was I supposed to know that the deTerra showroom was going to be so, well, lush? Forcing myself to leave and come back to my desk was really quite the effort.
There are nine whole kitchen displays, all made of solid oak cabinets and kitted out with a yummy selection of timber worktops. Each set has its own ‘character’ which makes it even more fun; I had quite the time wandering about, wondering ‘am I a Clotted Cream kind of gal? Or no, maybe I’m Forest. Or Seaside. Or Country!’ I don’t envy the customer who has to choose between them.
There’s loads of choice; plenty of appliances to see, nifty little displays of worktop timbers and door colours, and moodboards by every set to give inspiration and guidance. You could happily spend half an hour looking at the shiny handles board (or maybe that’s just me).
I could write more, but to be honest I want to get back down there for another nosey. I could tell you that the showroom is open between 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday, and 10am-2pm on Saturdays, but in a way I’d rather keep it all to myself. I’m already planning my new house with 9 separate kitchens and I don’t like to share.
