Kitchen Inspiration

Everyone is updating their kitchens to be more modern and efficient. Many times, the end result is a very sterile, cold look. This kitchen is my inspiration for a fun 1950's vibe.

Here are some products that will give you the same effect without sacreficing convenience.

KitchenAid appliances in Martha Stewart Blue. Available at Macy's.

Vintage fruit and flowers tablecloth. Scour flea markets and antique stores, or if you would like a new reproduction, check out Tabletop Couture's online store.

Another flea market favorite is the enamel/porcelain top table. The one pictures is from Ebay. There are so many different styles and colors available. Most also come with leaves. Perfect for a breakfast nook or use as an island.

Toleware chandeliers are making a comeback! The new ones look authentic, with the exception of possible wiring issues! This one with pretty yellow daisies is from Posh Living.

Last but not least, Anthropologie. Their selections of kitsch is dependable. These are just a few of my favorites. If you are lucky enough to have a store within driving distance, it's worth checking out their sale section every few weeks. I've found killer juice glasses and frames for a quarter of the original price!
