What You're Wanting: A Retro-Modern Kitchen

What You're Wanting: A Retro-Modern Kitchen

I've become a little obsessed with the Life archives, which were recently added to Google Images. If you're not careful, you too could be pulled into hours of poring over images from America's past. This image, of Joan Wilson whipping up something yummy in her stylish circle skirt, was taken in 1950. I love the look of her kitchen, which would be a classic look in today's midcentury modern-obsessed kitchen world. Of course, you don't want to simply re-create this look in your home, though. You also want to add a modern, up-to-the-minute touch to the retro look and, of course, a lot of your own style.

So, for the latest What You're Wanting, I want to know how you'd furnish, accessorize, and style a retro-modern kitchen. What table would you choose, or would you keep the one shown in the photo? How about chairs and benches? Would you choose a different clock? What color scheme would you work with?


Add all the finds to your ShopStyle Living stylebook, and create a look tagged with the phrase Retro Modern Kitchen. Private message me if you have any questions. Oh, and as extra incentive, I'll give some Sugar schwag away to my favorite look!
