Inspiration: Cozy Cabin Kitchen

24 Oct

Yesterday I visited with my boyfriend’s family at their shared cabin near Placerville. Wood paneling, a dead bat under the midcentury pink sofa, and a toasty fire to warm my arse. Now that’s my kind of cabin. The kitchen though was the zenith, the apex, the pinnacle. Original GE fridge and pristine double-oven stove with broiler and warming drawers. They are kept in amazing condition time-capsuled in this cabin.

Now that it’s officially rainy season, it’s time for me and mine to retreat inside and get in some serious cozy kitchen time. Soup and bread making, putting on the poundage whilst listening to some “phat beats.” We have updated modern appliances that came with our apartment, but I remember fondly the vintage stove from the old Victorian where I lived San Francisco. That thing worked double-time as a source of pizza and household heat. They’re amazing workhorses and look great  if you can afford to de-retrofit your kitchen.

One of the most popular brands available for old stoves are Wedgewood stoves. This brand was brought to my attention by our friend Jenn who is hoping to replace the broken stove in her house with one of these bad boys. I’ve seen them range in price from $150 – $700, most of which seem to be in good working condition but may be missing knobs or handles. Or, like the old stove I used to live with, had loose doors that would just FLOP open. This one is going for $500. (Original Post)

This General Electric fridge is working and going for $250.00. I feel like if you keep an eye out for working vintage fridges you can find some amazing deals. And even more amazing colors. (Original Post)

This hoosier has been listed for a month or more. I keep eye-ballin’ it – it’s just so wonky but interesting. It includes the drawers that aren’t featured in the photo. It is HUGE and looks perhaps 1940’s era? I tried researching Mobilux, but didn’t find any information. The seller thinks it may be French. This behemoth is selling for $150.00. It is not the sleekest of pieces to go in your slick atomic ranch, but definitely unique. (Original Post)
