Loving A Sweet Blue And Yellow Vintage Kitchen
I'm loving this 1940's kitchen and wish it was mine. I would fill it up with my favorite blue and yellow kitchen collectibles.
Using Just The Right Blue
The blue has to be just the right blue....I pulled together some photos of kitchen-wares that look great together. I can't honestly tell you the dates of the collectibles, but they are from the colorful eras of the 30s, 40s, 50s.
Notice how the kitchen above is done in yellowish off white and blue, yet the counters were done in a dark coral color. This actually is a nice color to add to this combination of blue and yellow. The linoleum floor also picks up a striped edge of this dark coral color.
Re-Painting Kitchen Cabinets
In the second kitchen photo,
a whimsical kitchen is created by giving these 1950ish kitchen cabinets a new coat of blue and yellow paint. As you can see in the top photos , the blue and yellow are more mellow than in the rennovated kitchen shown. But the combination of blue and yellow is still quite charming.
What Types Of Blue And Yellow Kitchen Collectibles And Decorative Items To Look For:
1. metal trays
2. canister sets (Ransburg has a nice blue set)
4. vintage wallpaper
5. Yelloware bowl
6. napkin holders
7. vintage tablecloth, curtains, potholders

10. flowers in a vintage vase
