The ’70s are alive and well in this retro kitchen, whose chartreuse color palette and simple cabinetry give off a groovy feeling. Should you have a small dated kitchen you’re not too happy about, try leaning harder into its era to really make the most of it. Rather than committing to painting your cabinets or choosing a crazy-colored appliance, infuse color through your accessories, like in this kitchen space, which features light blue and red accents.
Keep the kitchen cozy and full of style with a vibrant vintage-style rug, like this one from Canary Lane, photographed for Instagram in the kitchen of stylist Carlay Page Summers. For a narrow galley-style kitchen, go with a runner, or try a smaller 3′ x 5′ for something more square and compact.
In a narrow space, it’s sometimes best to opt for a simple color scheme like this to keep the look as airy as possible. The chevron detail keeps the palette consistent, but adds extra visual interest. The gold foil decals adorning these cabinets are an unexpected choice, yes, but a worthwhile one. They add a fun glamorous touch, but require no commitment—if you get bored simply peel them off and start fresh.
