{Retro Kitchen: Get The Look}

I don't know where to start with this fun and fabulous space; for me it's all so good. It's an eclectic and colourful space tied together with industrial metal finishes and soft, neutral furniture, which makes me want to call my buddies and get together for an impromptu evening of good food and wine. That mantle is pretty much my ideal mantle and don't get me started on how excited I am by those open kitchen shelves. Plus, that hugely European stone floor...I die! Right, time to stop being all swoonful and see how to recreate this playful kitchen space...


  1. I agree... what a great kitchen! You are getting real good at finding things to recreate a space. Copy Cat Chic... Look Out!!!!
    Thank you Will for the lovely anniversary wishes... you are the sweetest guy :)

  2. I always love a vintage inspired look, always reminds me of the great meals my Grandmother prepared.

  3. Hey Will that kitchen says, "Fun and smiles for all" Love it. Can't wait to see what you wind up doing. Love the checked table cloth. You will have fun thrifting to find the nostalgic kitchen items. Happy Week,Kathysue

  4. Oh great post Will! I love all the retro pieces you chose, so fun! Hope you had a great weekend!

  5. thanks will-your blog looks great!

  6. Will -- your blog has this peaceful, playful, eclectic charm about it that instantly relaxes me after a long day at work.
    Just had to comment on your excellent taste, esp. as it seems to be quite American here; very diner-esque in the best of ways. An ideal space for extended pancake breakfasts! I think I need to do a post on my fav breakfast spot in Seattle, which occupies this old Victorian house and feels like a movie set. All vintage 50's furniture. You'd love it!!
    Anyway, hope all is well with you. (So what's going on re Greece?)

  7. oooh micheal sure does like your blog...
    i do too. you know you are my fave thing to read when i wake up doll.
    love to you!
    love to this kitchen...mmm!

  8. Hey WIll, that was 2nd option for my style for the right bank challenge last week. It totally rocks! Love everything about it too!...Sinead x

  9. what a great post Will, I love how you did the how to get the look!! Thanks for your sweet comment today :)

  10. Love this kitchen, it is so whimsical. And I love how you break down rooms and show us 'how to get the look!'

  11. So great! I love that vintage-y, industrial clock the most. Plus, it looks like this baker, cook, chef, sandwich artist has plenty of space. That's always a good thing.

  12. I love this post! Please do more like this one with all kinds of looks!

  13. Hi Will, love the space and all the retro accents in this kitchen particulary what look like melamine kitchen units in 50's shades in the foreground. Am building my kitchen and really would like to get my hands on those very units - if only I could find them, have scoured the net. They look new/reproduction models to my eye. If you had a link to the supplier or the manufacturer I would be forever indebted!! Thankyou Jason

  14. @ Jason - Thanks for stopping by! I'm afraid I don't know where the cabinets are from. Good luck with your search!


Thank you for leaving a comment - each one makes my day!
