~ Vintage Pink Kitchens... random pictures that I adore...

I love roaming through Pinterest, looking at vintage pink kitchen images loaded there.
What is even better is when I see that someone has been dedicated to do a kitchen renovation, using the vintage color steel cabinets.

Or they choose to keep intact a wonderful older pink kitchen....
I love the bright clean look of the white cabinets with the pink counter tops... then those delightful vintage pink stoves and cook range.

In my parents home... they had a similar style range top... but in turquoise. Mother had a kitchen full of turquoise appliances. But the kitchen  was gutted in the early 70's. And Mother replaced it with a new avocado green stove. And refrigerator.... dishwasher...

Then those tragic looking avocado green appliances were replaced in the late 70's with white. When she decided it was much easier to change the color of her kitchen, if she kept white ones. 

I never realize, till I was grown, that most people never update their home as frequently as my Mother.  The woman to this day... changes out her living room and den furniture every 4 years. Paints the walls new colors... the only thing that has survived her need to update.. are the wood floors. :) 

I love this kitchen too. Look at those wonderful pink appliances.

That pink stove is perfection! Then they used that wonderful turquoise checked wallpaper. Then bringing it to the counter tops. It is impossible to be depressed in such a great kitchen!

Then another gorgeous vintage dinette set from Retro Renovation. There were only a couple of pink sets that made it to that picture loader. And this one had its matching two tone chairs!

I l-o-v-e your blog and seeing all these beautiful vintage goodies. I would adore cooking in a pink kitchen like one of these, but I'm not sure my husband would go for it, lol. Thanks so much for sharing so many pretty things (oh yeah, and thanks for inspiring an obsession with pink pyrex, lol - at least it's a useful obsession!)

Thank you for the kind words... I do have a slight obsession with the pink and white kitchen color scheme. And Pinterest really provokes it. :)
