While super-modern kitchens are also very lovely, lately we've been seeing a lot of stylish kitchens that incorporate one or more vintage elements. Whether it's a vintage-style stove or refrigerator or a antique pie safe, adding something old (or something that just looks old) to your kitchen will give it an intriguing dose of texture and history.
