Mid-Century Makes a Comeback

Inspiration from the 50’s and 60’s
We can already hear it, how are vintage kitchens inspiring, they are so dated and ugly! Well we would argue that there is a lot to take from an old kitchen and you would be surprised to see how much of those old dusty trends sneak their way back into home design movements of today. The 1950’s and 60’s mid-century style offers clean lines, unique elements and bold colors. Take a look at this collage we’ve assembled, and we’ll let you be the judge. Maybe it’s too much of a time warp for you, or maybe you’re signing up for a ride in the DeLorean, but like it or not, we would love to hear your opinion.
This Mod Kitchen utilizes an orange oven and colorful vintage décor items to create a room that easily bridges the gap between modern aesthetics and vintage warmth. There is just the right amount of color to spice up the white cabinetry and countertops, while still leaving those with who crave dramatic accents satisfied.
This kitchen features a combination of contemporary design with a splash of mid century modern. Notice the teal colour of the cabinetry and the vintage metal wrapped kitchen table reminicent of a 50’s diner. Throw a coin in the jukebox, sip a creamy milkshake and enjoy a slice of good ol’ apple pie.
Minimal design is made more friendly and inviting in the kitchen below with the floor-to-ceiling yellow subway tile and multi-tonal wood. Both elements would be right at home in 1960, however are modernized by the clean, no-frills design of the cabinetry and island. This allows these two features to stand out without competing and overwhelm the eye.
