Those of you who follow this blog will know we have a slight orange obsession…ok, ok, we have a HUGE orange obsession. It all started when Adam was on a quest for an orange teapot which then triggered a buying spree of everything, and I mean everything orange for his kitchen.
When my grandma passed away in 2007, I was a left some money. Most of it paid for my maternity leave but I allowed myself to splash out on 2 things – 1 for me and 1 for Adam. I got a mirrored chest of drawers and Adam got an orange SMEG. Finally his orange kitchen collection was complete…or so we thought!
Browsing on Facebook last week my lovely friend Kim tagged me in a post about orange washing machines. Not just washing machines though, tumble dryers too! They are so cool, energy-efficient (as modern appliances are) and, well orange! They are made by Gorenje who also make great retro styled fridge freezers such as this metallic one.
Modern vintage appliances can make a plain modern kitchen shout WOW! So with this in mind I started to see what else was out there in the market place.
First up is another washing machine by SMEG that has a door on the front to hide it away from the world. In pastels such as baby blue and pink it is a 1950s lover’s dream.
They also make dishwashers to match..such clever people!
Well thanks to Kim, I then spent most of the day browsing Pinterest to find other people’s kitchens, to ogle and salivate over their modern vintage appliances.

Which one is your favourite?
I LOVE your orange Smeg! I always wonder why more companies don’t make their ‘white goods’ multi-coloured!
