I get excited when I come across a kitchen that is so different from the same ole’ trends. When I found this retro inspired kitchen, I couldn’t get over how refreshing it felt, even though it was inspired by design that was in fashion decades ago!

Tasty-Tuesday-Vintage-Style-Kitchen006-atriumhaus-haendelalleeFittingly, it was designed for a home built in 1957! Located in middle of Tiergarten Park in the Berlin, the home’s exterior was preserved as a historical landmark, but the current owner reimagined the interior in 2012 with the help of the BFS Design Flachsbarth Schultz.

The bronze light fixture and throwback wallpaper pattern had me at hello. They are one of the few fabulous things that came out of 1970’s style. I could see myself walking into this space in Palm Springs then, but also right now! The clean modern line of the kitchen counters and dining table, combined with the mid-century chairs feel completely contemporary.

But what I love most about this space is its color palette. The rich and smooth combo feels so brave and modern against white walls and minimalist cabinetry. I love the spicy cayenne pepper, brick-like color of the Eames chairs mixed in with the white and black. With that last little pop of the steely-blue ceramic vase, this color palette is pure perfection!

  1. Wow, what a great color palette!! Sort of a breath of fresh air from all the ocean/sand inspired color combinations I’ve been seeing a lot of… this has more of the earthy tones I love so much! Thanks for the post!!


    1. You’re so right–the colors are not what we usually see, and you forget how inspiring it can be when you see something out of the norm.

  2. Love this look and all things 70’s. Check out my 70’s page of vintage jewelry on my website for more inspiration.
