It might not be easiest thing to find, but if you want that 'wow' factor in your 1950s-style home, you really need one of these stunning St Louis kitchens by Marchi.
In fact, as the images say more than any words, we have gone heavy on the pictures of these designs, which are available in light blue, white and now pink. All are inspired by the 'innovative and creative' years of the 1950s and created using lacquered wood and subtle round edges, with impact added by those glass-fronted storage units, ribbed aluminium and integrated appliances. There's even an integrated vintage clock in one shot!
We have only scratched the surface when it comes to photos, with plenty more available at the website.
The downside? The company, which has been around for something like 40 years, is based in Milan in Italy. That could make getting hold of the St Louis a more difficult job than a kitchen from your average DIY store. But if it's a kitchen for your 'forever' home, it might be worth the added time and expense.
Prices will inevitably vary depending on the configuration you go for.
