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

Ah! I have that large turquoise w/ white pyrex bowl! it was my Mum’s, and when she was letting it go I rescued it.. 50 years of use and it looks good as new :) Gorgeous kitchen!


AAAHH! This is my dream kitchen. I looooove it.
For now I have a print of a kitchen aid mixer, but one day i will actually own one.


Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I just want to sink into that blue! I particularly love the little touch of the color in the cupboard handles! So cute!


I’ve always enjoyed that combination of red and aqua…it’s whimsical without being childish. Cool room!

This pic has been in my inspiration folder for quite a while. I am in *love* with that jam jar and I *heart* my Martha Stewart pot! :)

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.


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

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.


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!

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.


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?
