Get the look: Colorful Retro Inspired Kitchens

I have a soft spot in my heart for colorful retro kitchens. Beyond the aesthetic appeal, it makes me nostalgic for our first house we moved into as newlyweds. It was built in the late 1950s and everything was original to the house. The bathrooms were never updated and the kitchen wasn’t either. But I was okay with that because they had absolutely pristine white powder-coated metal cabinets manufactured by a company called Youngstown (see an interesting history here of industrial steel kitchen cabinetry). We painted the walls yellow and it all felt very fresh and retro. It was where my blog began, in fact!

The retro kitchen trend is probably best known for its style and color appeal along with some personality-laden details and I’ve pulled together a TON of candy colored inspiration over at Better Homes & Gardens to get you started.
