Fashion is everywhere. It is not only apparent on clothes. Fashion can be applied to almost anything. In fact, it can also be applied to the kitchen. Trends in fashion also bring inspiration to kitchen trends. My post about kitchen colours had already proven fashion’s impact in the kitchen. Colours of fashion have also become the colours of the kitchen. You may think this is absurd but a type of fashion now dictates a kitchen style. What I am talking about in here is the retro style.
Several kitchens right now already have the retro style. The bright and striking colour combinations represent a retro style. Antique displays also give more accents to this kitchen style. The retro trend is known for patterns and this can applied in the kitchen as of this time. There is just a major twist that you can observe in the kitchens inspired by this style right now. Instead of just having a single pattern, the kitchens that are influenced by the retro style now have a mix of different patterns. Kitchens have print over print and still over print design.
For instance, stripes can be applied to a portion of a kitchen’s wall while polka dots can be seen in the kitchens cabinet. How people take risk in applying this style right now brings a modern twist to this old trend. It is just similar to how fashionable people wear a print top over a print bottom – animal prints over another print with accents of printed bags and accessories.
If you want to bring this style to your kitchen then don’t just stick to the change of colours only. Bring this style to a whole new level by adding retro kitchen appliances. There are a lot of vintage stores that are selling functional kitchen appliances until this time. You may even visit your parent’s house and start trading your kitchen appliances with their retro kitchen appliances. If they are not functional anymore then just use them for display instead.
Remodeling a kitchen does not have to follow a rule all the time. Sometimes it is in the breaking of a rule that a magical art is created. So what are you waiting for? Think about this style and if you are risky enough, play with it. You’ve got nothing to lose. Styling your kitchen in this manner won’t cost you much so you really have nothing to be afraid of.
