As the earthy colours look a little dull I will be giving the splash-backs a good clean and have a go with a can of cheap supermarket polish. We have a new bright striped blind (a deckchair pattern/colours) at the other end of the room (double aspect) so I am going to cover the dining room chairs with similar fabric and then make some bunting to hang above the sink. Will post some pictures shortly. That should brighten the place in the rest of the dull winter weather!
