Our kitchen is a basic rental home kitchen, think oven with a squeaky door and standard cupboard doors. However, it does house my thrifted vintage china collection as well as my Kitchen Aid and these retro style caddies to give it a bit of style.
The book has tons of ideas for displaying vintage pieces in your Kitchen as well as colour scheme ideas and retro-inspired furniture. Apart from getting kitchen ‘island’ envy, I found it to be a super coffee table book as well as a practical guide for sourcing, reinventing, repurposing and displaying.
Whilst it covers lighting and furniture choices in quite a bit of detail, my favourite section of the book looks at kitchen gadgets, utensils and storage ideas. A favourite gadget in our kitchen is a little guillotine that cuts the top of your boiled egg off!
The suppliers list at the back of the book is a mixture of high end stores, vintage suppliers and markets. I’m now feeling inspired to put my vintage tea cups and quirky pieces on display.
I have one copy of Kitchenalia to give away to a reader. The giveaway is open to UK readers only (sorry it’s a pretty heavy book to post!) and ends on 31 October. Just use the widget below to enter. Good luck!
