Those pink and aqua kitchens of the 1950s are long gone but not forgotten. Occasionally, they are stylishly reprised by young hipsters and it’s always fun to see how updates are done. A dynamic decorating duo, Australia’s Colin & Justin, transformed a boring off-white country kitchen into this screaming bubble-gum-pink number that retains the 1950s kitchen colors vibe. I love how they made the Liebherr look built in (I did the same thing in My Old New Kitchen). And the modest L-shape kitchen space was economically planned by placing the oven below the cook top. Kitchen cabinets are slab-front and remind me of the ’50s classics like St. Charles, which came in many colors. Even stainless steel counters are reprised, with a stainless back splash added as an update. Couldn’t you see Kelly Osbourne living here? I could.
Double Bubble colors (remember blue mouth?) aren’t for everyone but aqua is gaining ground. Architect Lukas Kordik used a single turquoise base cabinet housing a sink, cook top and oven to create a focal point in his Bratislava (Slovakia) loft. Placing the cabinet under a window helps, of course. Endearingly untidy, this modest, unfitted kitchen has 1950s kitchen colors at heart. Additional views are included in this mini-tour.)
