Design Shuffle

Today I bring you the fabulous folks at Design Shuffle. Their website has amazing interior design ideas, as well as a place to showcase your interior design skills. I was thrilled when they offered to do a guest post on Vintage Kitchens for us! Enjoy!

Hello everyone! Mari here. I write as a guest blogger for Design Shuffle, a totally fabulous social networking site for interior designers, architects, design professionals and enthusiasts. I love my work because I get to explore the beautiful world of interiors every day. Then, it's my job to write about the great decorating ideas I discover.

I appreciate the opportunity to do this guest post for Samantha, here at Vintage is for Lovers. It seems we have something in common, a love of vintage cookbooks. I recently learned that my all time favorite set of cookbooks, the amazing Grand Diplome Cooking Course, is vintage. Can that be possible? How the time passes! And that brings us to today's topic: Vintage in the Kitchen. Going for a vintage feel in the heart of the home can create a warm and inviting place to gather with family and friends. And, it's never been easier to get a retro look with well-loved vintage pieces and great reproductions. Please enjoy!

This cheerful space has to be the quintessential vintage kitchen. It ticks all the boxes, from the chrome and vinyl dinette set, to the vintage tablecloth at the window. I want that red retro stove!

Vintage signs add instant nostalgia to vintage kitchen designs. This one makes a bold statement over that stunning white range. Chrome swivel stools add the perfect finishing touch.

Every vintage kitchen must have cooking utensils from back in the day. Reds and greens are popular colors for collecting.

Pink is the theme here. It seems the soft pastels we love today have been popular for a long time. Whether in painted furniture, ceramics or textiles, the many appealing shades of pink can be used as a foundation for the vintage kitchen or as a pretty contrast to white, green or blue.

A stylish illustration depicts a green and red kitchen as the ultimate center of the "modern" home. Though vintage, the design is still fresh and interesting.

This space is contemporary, but with a distinctly retro vibe. The red refrigerator and yellow wall-mounted car seem to belong in this kitchen.

More appealing pastels hereóblue, pink and green, all have their place in the well-equipped vintage kitchen.
