Beauty and Simplicity in Traci’s Retro Style Kitchen

Although may seem rustic and out of fashion there are people who still appreciate the beauty and simplicity of crafting. Wood, ceramic, leather, straw, fabrics are some of the materials used by craftsmen who are able to create amazing and beautiful things with them. Rustic wood pieces of furniture, wood spoons, leather bags or belts, shirts made of a light and soft fabric, ceramic vases or bowls and many other decorative items can be often seen at different crafting exhibitions.

In South Pasadena, Traci has a home which is a mixture of new and vintage items of all kinds which create a comfortable and lovely place to live in. Kitchen, for example is a retro style decorated space where vintage items make the whole delight of such a place. Vintage colored tea pots, decorative bird shaped ceramic items or other vintage bowls can be noticed here.

This kitchen is a nice combination of white and grey nuances so that all these vintage and colored details make the space more vivid and attractive. It seems that the dining corner is the most exemplifying area. It has a vintage buttoned vinyl bench and a special dining table made from Carrera marble and honed to a Knoll style tulip banquette base. Above the vintage bench there are many portraits on the wall which also add a retro touch and bring more color to this area.

Modern appliances do not miss and they are contrasted by the vintage design of the white cabinets. It is a pleasant place where a peaceful chat or a delicious meal can always take place in such a comfortable place.{found on thekitchn}.
