Inspired by throwback themes? Retro is having a resurgence, and the kitchen is the easiest place to give a nod to all things nostalgic - we'll show you how.
What is retro style?
We're talking looks that pay homage to decades gone by; bubble shaping, pop-art prints and candy shop colours all reference trends from the 50s, 60s and 70s. Designers are picking up on the desire for nostalgic looks, with brands bringing out ranges of kitchen appliances and accessories inspired by retro-styling.
Start with your base: wall colour, furniture & large appliances
Opt for pastel, candy-shop hues
Creams, soft mint greens and pale pinks - these milkshake shades are the bread and butter of the most iconic 50s looks, and handily they're really easy to weave into a neutral backdrop. With just a few key pieces in these creamy shades, you can transform an otherwise simple kitchen (we started with white walls and wooden cabinets) into a room-refreshing retro delight.
Add in some kitch-en electricals
Coordinating kettles, toasters, mixers and more (the type you'll show-off on your worktop) are an easy way to boost that retro look.
