For me there's something about a eat in kitchen that says home.  Wishing I would have considered that when we remoldeled our kitchen. I kinda miss it.    And...I like the yellow here and the retro look. We had a similar table when I was very young.  Awesome fridge!

I like retro eat in kitchens too.  The one you posted is really sweet.

I really like this!  It does have that feeling of home and times gone by.

Been there, done that, do not care for the retro kitchen. My summer kitchen has an eat in area and we rarely use it.

Oh, this is charming. I don't think I could live with the table and chairs, but the rest is so pleasing and a reminder of times gone by.

@ladycos  I love it--so sweet!

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!

It is adorable for a summer cottage or vacation home.

Re: Pretty little retro kitchen

I like this kitchen and it does remind me of the type kitchens I had  growing up/  We always had a table and chairs in the kitchen and it was sometimes the center of our home.  While I prefer being in my living room now where I am more comfortable, I have wonderful memories of being in the kitchen having family meals, sitting around talking about our day, watching my mom cook some great meals.  This kitchen brings back those memories.

Utterly charming, @ladycos.  You selected an especially cute and inviting example of "retro-ness".

 

I love the descriptions of vintage kitchens in books.  For some reason, this one reminds me of the warm, cheery kitchen that Julie Campbell described as belonging to teenage detective "Trixie Belden's" family in their little house in the hollow, "Crabapple Farm"....
