  1. HI Brenda!! Did you read the "book" I just emailed to you???? anyhoo.... I want the all white kitchen with the black counter tops please. Could you ship that to me ASAP!!! Gorgeous!!! Im with you! I hate stainless! Cant stand the fingerprints. When I was at my sons for Christmas I was constantly wiping off all the stainless! It just seems cold to me. I feel like Im in a professional restaurant kitchen !! Just my opinion! I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my dream kitchen!!


  2. Hi. Do you visit the blog It's a great blog focused on homes and décor more or less from the 1940s through 1960s, although sometimes it stretches to the 1930s through 1980s. It's a great source of information on where to find original materials or modern-day replacements, and there are many features on the homes of readers. It's always fun to get a peek into someone's 1960s era kitchen!

  3. I absolutely love the way these retro appliances look! Wonderful colors! Growing up, ours were harvest gold. I don't really like the stainless steel, but I think it's really popular right now.

  4. I saw a few kitchens I would give up my cramp little kitchen for.

  5. I love that blue refrigerator. I wish I had the guts to use colored large appliances.

  6. Well, my stove is 26 yrs old. If it can hang on long enough I guess it may come back in style too!

  7. I have been looking at Big Chill appliances for several years. I love them but we still don't own any and they would look great in our 1940's home.

  8. I've never liked stainless appliances- way to modern looking for my taste! The green appliances could be shipped to my kitchen any time. Love!

  9. You are truly amazing and so inspiring! Love that you are giving back. I send you a HUGE hug on this Thanksgiving holiday and I am grateful for being your blogger friend! Little by little, I will be redecorating our house and I look to your blog for ideas. amazing design

  10. I like the way they have mixed in a piece with the existing stainless, etc. For instance, I think that red fridge needs to come live with me!

  11. Fun photos. They remind me of the show "Happy Days".

  12. Love those colors. We are watching and waiting on our appliances to quit completely on us. They are on borrowed time. My kitchen has the off white appliances. The wall paper is French Country and I love it. The question would be what to replace the appliances with. Certainly not stainless.

  13. Brenda, I would take #2, $6, #7 or #8 in a heartbeat. Love that vintage look. You should share these at Every Room In The House. It's a new month-long party I'm hosting, and this month we're partying in The Kitchen. Your post would be great inspiration for everyone. Here's the link:
    I hope you'll come. Have a great weekend. ~ Nancy

  14. I love these examples, andI love the Big Chill. I wanted one, but they were too wide for my kitchen by a few inches, so I went with a SMEG. I love its retro look and the fun color.


I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time. I appreciate each and every one of you!
