talk of a seventies revival has been bubbling away for a few years. now it’s finally arrived – the vintage look is being reflected in the use of pretty patterned tiles in brown and beige tones, with retro ribbed-glass lighting and tumbled limestone floors adding a soft edge. ‘these classic vintage surfaces can really boost the sense of individuality and personality in your kitchen,’ says andy stirling, creative and design director at the shaker kitchen company. combined with classic shaker cabinetry and oak accents, the look is quietly sophisticated, without a hint of Grandma kitsch.»
