The Retro Kitchen. Fun Stuff to Brighten up Your Kitchen


I love all the bright, funky kitchen goodies out there at the moment, I could go colour crazy! These very retro, yet still modern kitchen pieces give your kitchen an instant mood boost, at least they have mine.

I’m quite lucky that the style of my kitchen is very gourment/country/bistro style and all these items fit right in, especially the retro Morphy Richards kettle and toaster, but I’m sure any of these items would brighten up just about every style of kitchen.

My obsession with styling my kitchen with colorful retro items started when I bought the Morphy Richards kettle and toaster after my kettle eventually died. I love the old school look of the kettle and huge dials on the toaster. They come in a variety of colours, but for my kitchen, I chose orange for both.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Joseph Joseph stuff. I have a few items from this brand, and would love to someday kit out my entire kitchen with more Joseph Joseph gadgets. They really are superior in quality and very, very innovative! I recently bought this super cool stackable utensil set and love it to bits. I love the different coloured utensils and that it not only looks cool, but takes up very little space on your work top.

I’ve been wanting a set of KAI Pure Komachi knives for the longest time, it’s just been such a mission to find them! Each knife has a different colour for different uses, and no one can argue that every great chef needs a good set of knives!

The Wesco Bread Boy and Kitchen Aid mixer are high up on my lust list, however they’re a little pricey, so I’ll need to save a little, but definitely think they’re both worth the investment.

Have you spotted any cool and colorful kitchen goodies lately? I’d love to hear about them and if you have any of the ones featured, what you love most about them.
