Collecting Yellow And Black Vintage Kitchen Collectibles
Today I began my YELLOW and BLACK journey for kitchen collectibles. I have so much fun putting together different color combinations in my shop "Kitsch n Stuff". And it is time for a marriage of yellow and black.
Inspiration For Kitchen Ideas
All it takes for me to get started on a particular palette is to see an appealing display in a shop I am visiting and I am off and running with new ideas for my own shop.
Yellow, Black, Gray Is a Great Vintage Palette
Sometimes I will use the colors on a vintage tablecloth to help me figure out a new color combination .... or in the case of today's yellow and black vintage
kitchen, my inspiration came from a display of yellow, black , gray coffee mugs spotted at Salmon Brook Antiques in Granby, CT.
Yellow And Black Works For Bumble Bees (and Kitchen Collectibles)
Lets face it.....yellow and black has always worked well for Bumble Bees! Now I'm challenged to find yellow and black housewares and kitchen accessories to show you how great these collectibles look together.
