A New Kitchen with Fond Memories

Built in 1953 this charming yellow kitchen is full of old memories. In over a year a young couple, Merethe Bright and Tore Dahle, remodeled the cottage with modern updates like new paint and hardware. Originally owned by Merethe's grandmother and grandfather, the house is still furnished with sweet memories of her childhood. Like the vintage radio, which played her grandparent's favorite songs, and the blue stools she used to sit on during lunch with her grandparents. I love this kitchen because it's filled with sunshine yellow, modern elements, vintage appeal and an adorable history.

Add your own character and these pieces to get the look:

1. Louise Campbell Fiducia Magnetic Vases & Candlestick Holder ($225.00), 2. Eames Inspired Sliver Chair with Wire Base ($290.00), 3. Ice Blue Hi-Light Task Lamp ($79.00), 4. IKEA PS SÅGA Chair ($69.99), 5. Ark Lighting Black Hanging Dome Reflector Light ($78.75), 6. Black Lace Oilcloth Yardage ($7.75), 7. Tolomeo Mini Table Lamp ($260.00), 8. Calendar Wall Flip Clock ($99.00), 9. HAY-Hee Dining Chair

For paint try Benjamin Moore's Good Morning Sunshine.

This is such a charming kitchen with such a cheery hue. Love the marriage of vintage with modernity.

Oh, that flip clock! I'm in love. I have one flip clock from the flea market that I had to painstakingly labor over to get it working again. And it still runs really fast. This one would be a perfect (maybe better at keeping time?) mate.

I have to say I'm not a massive fan of yellow but this kitchen is great. I love the ruler runner. I wonder where that came from.

I love this kitchen so much, I had to buy some of the pieces for my own kitchen. First thing I bought was the cool wall clock, and then I ordered the Ark Lighting hanging light from Westside Wholesale (you posted the link above, but they are here: ). Had to share again, these are really cool, highly recommended.

Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when
opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
very good blog!

Searching I noticed your blog bookmarked as: Blogger:
please sir. Now i'm assuming you book-marked it yourself and wanted to ask if social bookmarking gets you a ton of visitors? I've been looking at doing some book-marking for a few of my sites but wasn't certain if it would yield any positive results. Thanks.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this,
like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive
the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.
An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

Hey! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of work?
I am brand new to blogging but I do write in my journal every day.
I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
