Retro Kitchens are a Blast from the Past.
Retro kitchens are hot tamales these days. Big to little appliances are all dressed up to be retro. These appliances are available to buy to turn your kitchen retro just like Rachel Ray who has the blue Big Chill refrigerator shown below that I like so much. This post is a look at retro kitchens. This is fun with a capital FUN and is a great change from the everyday look-a-like kitchens.
Here now are 14 wonderful blast from the past 50s retro kitchens to look at. Featuring the retro style kitchen from the Mad Men show. The real-life “UP” movie house retro kitchen. 1950s mid century style kitchens. Big Chill blue retro kitchen. A must-see Celebrity retro kitchen. Enjoy the magic!
A famous kitchen easily recognized is Rachel Ray’s TV show kitchen. I could stay on task with this kitchen for this whole post. Her’s is a perky blast from the past retro kitchen. It’s full of energy like Rachel. Do you have Rachel Ray’s cookware in orange, yellow, green, or blue?
On to more blast from the past retro kitchens.

This is the retro kitchen from the Real-life “Up” Movie house built in Harriman, Utah I did a post on, which is also about a real house that can fly.
I am calling this the Dreamcicle kitchen that is really a light pink refrigerator and oven and baby blue and white kitchen cabinets. Yep, it’s a Dreamcicle retro kitchen come true. via Housetohome
Mad Men has a 50′s kitchen, but what kind is it? It is not the steel cabinets I think of from the 50′s. The cabinets seen here are the most similar to the western style cabinets below. I can’t leave this scene without saying how much I like the show Mad Men! Note the plaid pants that Betty Draper, played by Betty Francis, is wearing that match the plaid wallpaper. via TV.com
This Mad Man comparison is via Mid Century Home Style that has galleries of rooms and houses from the past. I can’t look at this picture too long, it’s distressing to see the wallpaper on the ceiling!
This is Big Chill’s blue and white retro kitchen.
Kristie Alley’s kitchen from her cottage for sale in Maine is dressed up in 50′s style. Definitely not my taste. You gotta see her cottage though, I have a whole post about it here.
♫ We’ve come a long way, baby to get where we’ve gotten to today! ♫
Hope you had fun looking back. Would you do a retro 50′s kitchen?
