The Retro Kitchen










My best friend Erin and her husband recently purchased their very first home. It's an older house with lots of charm and my friend loves the vintage / retro look. We spotted a fantastic (but very old and rusty) teal stove at an estate sale a few weeks back and about died! I was so happy when I discovered all of these wonderful retro appliances, with modern day technology. The shapes and colors of everything are so cheerful and fun...a nice change from stainless steel and granite!

  2. SO much fun. i love all of these ideas, especially the pastel-colored fridge. my only concern is that the outside would look even more appealing, forcing me to make more stops inside for snacks :)
