Why are these not my kitchen appliances??







Did your eyes just start tearing up like mine at the sight of such beauty? These are must haves for the vintage lover. The blue stove and the pink fridge are delicious looking. I tried to convince Doug last night that maybe we should have a bubble gum pink kitchen. I was picturing a vintage bakery, with delicate cupcakes everyday! He didn't *exactly* go for it. Actually I believe his words were "I'm no longer partaking in these conversations." What I think he actually meant to say was, "Hot Dog! That would be just creamy." I watch a lot of old movies.

The above eye candy comes from www.bigchillfridge.com. The blue is growing on me. I was always rather staunch that kitchens should be neutral or warm colours. I really want to paint ours blue for the reno. The same sort of blue that the fridge is. What do you think? I'll try and find some blue and white kitchens this week. It would be a pretty retro blue. We'll see what I can find on line before making any decisions! I'm getting excited though!!

  3. Oh my - we are on the same wave length. I just stumbled across a website with these exact same refrigerators and stove - I think it was called Big Chill - and I loved them. I would love to have this in my kitchen - but I am afraid after 6 months, I would regret my choice. But they are wonderful to look at - and expensive!!!

  4. I think I adore that blue stove - I dig vintage too, but I don't think I have the balls to pull it off! I wish I did, but I get so anxious when dealing with colors... I need a decorator!

  5. Yes it is "The Big Chill" who makes them! They are so lovely. I could look at it forever... The only other appliances I have a love for are the drawers. The dishwasher drawer, fridge drawer etc. I think those are pretty cool. ; )

    SIF, I hear ya! I tend to live in white. I could live with a white kitchen and the blue appliances though. My theory is (balls aside), research is the most important step when decorating. When I redid our bedroom all white I had a file on my computer of endless white rooms I'd collected the year before. It helped a lot!!! xxxx

  6. I love those appliances but I believe that my husband would have something along the lines of "when pigs fly" or "a cold day in Hell" before we would get those!!!

  7. I have no idea if this is a fluke or not but I was finally able to link over to your blog. YAY!

    So I think you should totally go for those appliances. They remind me of one of my favourite inspiration kitchens:

  8. Sharla, my husband said something similar about my love of the pink fridge!! He did however like the blue. fortunately my husband tends to approve of my design decisions. He knows who's boss. ; )

    Sarah I am so glad it worked!!!! I've missed seeing you here. ♥ The link happens to be one of favourites as well!! I've putting together a file on retro kitchens and lo and behold that is in it. It's one of my faves! Great minds think alike. ; )

  9. Thanks for coming to my blog, I love yours too! I adore those appliances. At least you live in a country where you could actually get them! No coloured stoves here but I can get a gorgeous baby blue Smeg fridge! Peta xx
