simply color: hannah berman

This lovely kitchen belongs to Hannah Berman of Pie Bird Press. The vintage blue, red and turquoise color combination is classic and adds so much character to a small space. Hannah’s 1950s Wedgewood stove is amazing (notice the turquoise knobs), and I love the tile with red stripes around the countertop. I’m not much help in the kitchen, but with these fun colors, I might be willing to try! — Lauren

  15. jules says:

    such a happy and fun cooking environment!

  16. I have this color combo in my kitchen, too, with a little dash of orange for good measure. It makes for such a cheerful space! I do wish I had such a cute vintage, stove, though. That looks like it really adds such a homey, happy-memories sort of touch.

  17. Jutta says:

    That would totally be my dream kitchen!

  18. My entire kitchen is in this color scheme, right down to my KitchenAid and Le Crueset!

  19. Kelly says:

    Wait a minute, I have a Wedgewood stove, but with dingy white knobs, where does one get turquoise knobs?!

  20. Maggy says:

    I am in love with this kitchen. Drool.

  21. This is so inspiring. I love red. I have a big red caste iron pot much like the ne featured here. I want a red kitchen aid. We shall see.

    I really should do some color coordinating in my kitchen to brighten things up.

  22. BONUS! I just went to the Macy’s website and the Martha Stewart items listed above are on sale!

    What a fun kitchen! :)

    I was on twitter when I found the link to this page. I looooooooooooooove that kitchen. All the pretty blues with that punch of red is awesome!

  25. Madeline says:

    nice use of bright colors from the wall to kitchen accessories.

  26. where might one pick up knobs like that to spice up a kitchen? Any ideas?

  27. Marty J. says:

    I love this! I’ve linked this and another (which I’m about to comment on as well) post to my own blog. Love the colors and vintage stove. Sigh.

  28. Susan says:

    I have my great aunts 1940’s Okeefe and Merrit stove. It CAME with red knobs and pull bars. I love it to death!

    What did you use as a pot rack and rack for lids?
