Book review: Kitchenalia by Vinny Lee

Kitchenalia vintage kitchen review by Cosy Home Blog

At Cosy Home, we’re big fans of vintage kitchenware, so love Vinny Lee’s new book, Kitchenalia.

It’s dedicated to ideas for ‘furnishing and equipping your kitchen with flea market finds and period pieces,’ and is packed with inspiration.

Vinny Lee, author and interiors editor of The Times Magazine, shares her ideas about how to creatively use vintage kitchenware, reclaimed furniture and upcycled accessories to create a vintage or retro style kitchen.

Vintage and retro style doesn’t have to be solely relegated to older homes. In fact, there’s an interesting section showing how three designers transform a modern fitted kitchen in different ways, which helps illustrate how easy it is to create the style you want in whatever kitchen you have.

Vintage kitchen ideas from Kitchenalia reviewed by Cosy Home Blog

There are some great ideas for creating displays of thrifty finds, hand-me-down family kitchenware and treasured china and the book is packed with photos to wow and inspire you. We love the ideas for repurposing items and giving them a new lease of life with a new role. The ideas for storage, in particular, are great.
