For a retro-inspired kitchen scheme, boldly mix the old with the new, the plain with the brightly coloured, and the modern with the vintage. Mixing furnishings can create a colourful and eclectic look. Adding a bit of decoration doesn’t need to be expensive, either. Scour local garage sales, thrift shops and markets for treasures to take home. After all, one person’s trash is another’s treasure!

Love retro-inspired art? Bring it into the kitchen! Create a retro-inspired kitchen by layering geometric tiles with bold colour. Simple brass pendant lights and black chairs allow the eye to rest; letting the vibrant elements shine. Retro and vintage images such as movie posters, magazine illustrations and images of Hollywood starlets can also add an instant nostalgic touch to a kitchen. Or, glam up your fridge with a selection of your favourites for a burst of colour and interest, and add more pops of colour through retro-inspired aprons and oven mitts hung from vintage hooks.
