Last week I had lunch with a dear friend and the conversation turned to kettles. Riveting, I know, but this was not just ordinary kettle talk. It prompted me to choose this everyday necessity for the inaugural Peekaboo List – a weekly collection of stylish on-trend picks pertaining to a particular product or category. Every Tuesday we’ll share our favourite selections befitting such a prestigious list and share them with you here. At Peekaboo we’re not just about kids’ stuff but everything relevant to a design-led family lifestyle so expect surprises.

First up, I give you the humble kettle.
