50’s inspired FAB fridges have always looked fantastic in a traditional kitchen setting, with pastel colours and smooth lines perfectly complimenting a classic rustic look. Caroline Rowland at Patchwork Harmony, however, has gone one step further! Transforming their beautiful kitchen to not only feature a FAB fridge with its nod towards 50's nostalgia and styling, they have combined the look to include a host of appliances from Smeg's more contemporary collections - with fantastic results! The stripped back, modern vintage look of the kitchen gives the space a simple and calming look, and perfectly encompasses everything that Smeg is about; beautiful design and top functionality.

The clean lines and crisp white glass finish of the SFP109B Linea oven with its contemporary back lit controls works incredibly well with the pastel tones of the fridge, a dichotamy between old and new. With 8 functions, 5 cooking levels and a pyrolitic cleaning function, the oven offers great performance, and when it looks this good, it surely offers the best of both worlds!

                              

The white glass oven has been paired perfectly with the 5 burner PVB750 Linea ‘Ultra Low Profile’ gas hob, continuing the white/ muted pastel colour scheme, in keeping with the rest of the setting and wooden work surface. As you can see, with a rapid burner in the centre of the hob, it is perfect for whistling kettles or large pans.

                           

Classically styled, Smeg's laundry and dishwashing appliances are tucked nicely underneath the kitchen island for that semi industrial look, still subtly on show, but not over doing it by taking centre stage.

                               

As you can see, Caroline at Patchwork Harmony certainly knows how to transform a kitchen and turn it into a stunning place to cook and relax. We love the bright quirky tiles, which really give the room extra character!
