Vintage Kitchen

I’m loving the idea of a vintage home right now, especially in the kitchen. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy! This gallery image from Ideal Home spurs me on even more to go for this look for our next kitchen remodel.


Here are some wonderfully vintage items that would go great in that kitchen, yum!

Mix Tape

Making mix tapes used to be so much fun but now with MP3s they’ve become a part of history. So how can we bring some of that fun back? Here’s some ideas to make sharing music a pleasure again.

USB Mix Tape

This USB stick is housed in a retro “cassette” box, how 80s!

CD Sleeve

If you prefer to go down the CD route, there are some fab CD sleeves on Etsy. I especially love this Good Shit one by PressaRussa, part of a collection of letterpress goodies that are to die for!

Watercolour Dress

How gorgeous is this maxi dress by Milly Moy? It reminds me of a canvas full of beautiful watercolours. Pastels will be big this summer, yay!

Salt & Pepper

My sister went on a short break and brought me back this sweet little salt and pepper set. It’s perfect for my black and white living room and I’ve decided to put them on display more as a decoration piece as they seem too nice to use for the purpose for which they are intended.


Here are some other salt and pepper sets I found which are also almost too nice to use.

Salt and Pepper

  1. Sandbox Salt and Pepper set – $38 
  2. Rubiks Cube Salt and Pepper Mills – £11.99
  3. Devil and Angel – £15.50
