Stainless steel has become the de rigueur finish for kitchen appliances within the past ten years. Stainless stainless stainless steel. I’ve got it, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it. It’s elegant and sleek.
But it’s not the only fish from the sea. As a verified color lover, I have to admit I have discovered my eye wandering recently. I adore my stainless, but you can find all these bright, vibrant and shiny fresh finishes out there: blues and yellows and reds. Some are industrial and modern; a few are throwback and vintage. All of them are really, really adorable.
I mean, a canary-yellow cooker? It’s difficult to complete with that.
These vintage-inspired turquoise numbers from Elmira Appliances offer this kitchen a fun retro vibe without going overboard into Mrs. Cleaver land.
This glowing blue cooker is such a nice surprise in this otherwise fairly conventional creamy white kitchen.
Siemasko + Verbridge
A dab of cobalt blue gives this upgraded glowing, white kitchen a homey yet contemporary feel. Plus it’s just pretty. The range is by Blue Star.

Here is the canary-yellow amount from Bertazzoni for which my heart yearns. Shh, do not tell my current cooker.

There’s nothing fresh about a white cooker. But a whitened La Cornue French array with vintage-inspired gold knobs and details is well worth a second glance. Pretty, is not it?
Moore Around… Design
A 1947 candy-apple-red stove with an toaster. Holy moley, what a looker.
Astleford Interiors, Inc..
Zing! A sexy pink refrigerator by Big Chill was really the only appropriate choice with this particular color-loving room.
Kingston Design Remodeling
The same refrigerator but in orange. Here it looks modern and sleek. Big Chill fridges come in a selection of square or curved lines.

A dark, glossy red fridge. Covering built-in grills with custom cupboard paneling is a superb way to hide them or make them pop with color.
If you have to do laundry (and I’m assuming you do), you might as well do it using a candy-apple-red washer and dryer set. Pow.
Kaufman Homes, Inc..
Light blue ones are fine also.
Retro Dishwasher – $525
A retro-inspired dishwasher by Big Chill. The very best of old layout and new technology.
