Why we love this pic: Retro hues, like olive green and pale peach, pair with a similarly retro fridge to give this space a warm, nostalgic feel. Meanwhile, contemporary elements, such as the black-and-white patterned backsplash and sleek, brushed-brass hardware, ensure that the design feels as fresh as it does timeless.

The takeaway: Mix nostalgic and contemporary components to create an unforgettable design.
